This busy port city, where the Weser empties into the North Sea, is technically part of Bremen, which is an hour to the south. You can take in the enormity of the port from a promenade that runs its length. In addition to being a major port for merchant ships, it is the biggest fishery pier in Europe, and its promenade is lined with excellent seafood restaurants.
