The Thünen Institutes (TI) in Bremerhaven are convenient to reach from Bremen Airport, another option would be to fly to Hamburg Airport.

  • From Bremen Airport to Bremerhaven central station (Hauptbahnhof):

Bremen Airport is very close to the city center and you can easily reach the central station by tram (S-Bahn) number 6, direction Universität, which leaves directly in front of the Airport. Travel time to the central station is 16 minutes and a regular single ticket costs 2.80 €. For further details please visit: https://fahrplaner.vbn.de

From the central station, trains are leaving twice an hour (xx:42/xx:56) to the destination of Bremerhaven Hauptbahnhof with a travel time of 34-45 minutes, and a single ticket costs 13 €. For more information, please visit: https://www.deutschebahn.com/en. From Bremerhaven Hauptbahnhof you could either take a taxi or take the "Hafen-Liner" bus, which brings you within a few minutes directly to our institute (here is the time table). Alternatively, you can also take the bus from Bremerhaven central station (line 506 heading towards Wulsdorf Bahnhofstrasse or line 505 heading towards Wulsdorf Bohmsiel) to the bus stop "Schaufenster Fischereihafen". From there it is still a walk of about 15 minutes (900 m). Another alternative is to take bus line 504 (direction Fischereihafen) to the bus stop "Am Schaufenster / Gera".
