On the “Journey” in the Klimahaus Bremerhaven 8° Ost visitors can experience first hand how the people live in the Earth’s most important climate zones. The tour along the eighth degree of longitude East leads through sceneries that are built true to original locations.
From far away it could be a ship or a cloud. Klimahaus Bremerhaven, future core attraction of the old/new port is something special.What does Bremerhaven have in common with the deserts of Niger, the South Pacific state of Samoa and St. Lawrence Island in Alaska? They are all located on the same line of longitude: 8 degrees east. Yet the living conditions experienced by the people in these climate zones vary wildly, with aridity and heat in Niger, tropical cyclones on Samoa and melting glaciers on St. Lawrence Island. The history of the climate from the Earth's formation 3.9 billion years ago up to the year 2050 is shown in the Perspectives area. On a total of around 11,500 m2 of exhibition space, Kilmahaus® offers unique experiences and well-founded information.
