    9b. Klimahaus, Bremerhaven

    August 13, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    We travelled across an area of 5,000 m2: trekking through diverse climate zones and encountering people whose daily lives are profoundly affected by the surrounding climate.
    Switzerland: alpine climate of Isenthal, in the canton of Uri. Wandered through the lush green meadows, past the cows, headed up the mountain along jagged rock formations to the cross (gipfelkreuz) on the summit.
    Seneghe in Sardinia: provides unique insights into climate events and weather patterns.
    Kanal in Nigeria: Drought, expansiveness, aridity, heat, sand and wind – all are part of daily life in the Sahel zone. We walked on desert sands and discovered that the northern Sahara was once a green region that developed into a desert over the course of time.
    Ikenge in Cameroon: has an abundance of water, but also a hot and humid climate, making it a paradise for animals and plants. With their almost limitless diversity, rainforests are the treasure troves of our planet.
    Queen Maud Land, Antarctica: Cold, ice, snow and a frigid wind to top it off. Temperatures well below zero, and endless ice of white landscape and ice shelves – vertical cliffs with a face of ice and snow – and plateaus.
    Satitoa in Samoa: below the surface of the water is a unique underwater world, captured in a series of large aquaria that parade the diverse lives of fish and coral on a South Pacific fringing reef.
    Gambell in Alaska: a small town on the remote island of St Lawrence where the indigenous inhabitants of the island, the Yupik, have lived off seal hunting and whaling for thousands of years.
    Hallig Langeness in Germany: the Halligen islands are surrounded by the turbulent North Sea, the flooding tides and the rising sea levels. Only in the middle of this Hallig island do your feet remain dry.
    Bremerhaven in Germany: the Journey ends.

    Day 9. Bremerhaven.

    August 13, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    We moved to the Intercity Hotel this morning next to the Bremen railway station. Had a shower and breakfast then met Horst at the railway station for a day in Bremerhaven.
    We decided to walk the 3km to the wharf but unfortunately it started to rain very heavily. However we dried very quickly in the hot climate areas of the Klimahaus 8° Ost.
    The Klimahaus is fascinating. I could have stayed all day. It follows the trail of Axel Werner around the world on the longitude 8°34’ travelling through nine places and five continents. We experienced the actual climate zones, met the people and saw the flora and fauna. The people spoke about how the climate affected them and how their climate had changed.

    “For me, home is all about the people.” Axel Werner

    Bremerhaven

    August 1, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Mercredi, 1er août 2018
    Changement de décor aujourd'hui, nous quittons l'idyllique port de Spika pour celui de Bremerhaven. Cette ville nous montre dès l'arrivée sa skyline futuriste. Nous sommes installés sur un aire de cc près d'une double écluse et nous partons à pied en direction du centre ville. Comme il nous faut attendre à l'écluse, nous pouvons déjà admirer le Mediterraneo avec le Klimahaus et au fond l'hôtel Sail City. Un immense shopping-center longe l'ancien port. Nous allons dîner au Mediterraneo, un village italien, fait comme les outlets en Californie. N'empêche, c'était extra! La ville recèle de nombreux musées, il faut choisir. Ça sera le Deutsche Auswandererhaus. Entre 1830 et 1974 sont partis 7 million d'Allemands de Bremerhaven pour le nouveau monde. Chaque visiteur reçoit avec sa carte d'embarquement l'identité d'un voyageur, qu'on peut suivre tout le long de l'exposition, fascinant. La salle d'attente, le quai, le bateau et les conditions spartiates, tout est reconstitué comme aussi le bureau d'immigration à Ellis Iland et la gare centrale ne NY. Dans une seconde partie, on suit un immigré en Allemagne. C'est également très émouvant. Il nous faut tout l'après-midi pour la visite. Pour clore notre tour, nous laissons nous transporter au 20ème étage de l'hôtel Sail City et profitons du panorama exceptionnel. En longeant l'ancien port où se trouvent de nombreux bateaux historiques, qui font partie du musée martime adjacent., nous rejoignons notre cc.Read more

    Bremerhaven

    November 1, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    Nach dem traumhaftem Wetter gestern auf Spiekeroog zeigt sich heute Bremerhaven und die Weser grau in grau.
    Aber direkt an der Geestemündung gibt es einen Aussichtsplatz, den anzufahren sich immer lohnt. Hier hat man freien Blick auf die Fähre nach Blexen, auf die großen und kleinen Pötte die von Bremen kommen oder dorthin wollen und auf die inzwischen sehr veränderte Skyline von Bremerhaven...Read more

    Schaufenster Fischereihafen

    September 16, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Sehr blauäugig bin ich vom Klimahaus zum Fischereihafen gelaufen... War ne blöde Idee. So 3.5 km können sich ganz schön ziehen. Zumal die Strecke nicht viel für das Auge zu bieten hat. Dort angekommen hatten zwar einige Restaurants geöffnet allerdings hat mich nichts wirklich angesprochen. Am Wochenende ist hier wahrscheinlich mehr los. Das Wassertaxi fährt ebenfalls nur am Wochenende. Zurück habe ich den Hafenliner (Bus) genommen.Read more
