Overview

The central main focus of the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven is polar research and the exploration of the sea. Scientists of different disciplines work together multidisciplinary to investigate the climate, biosystems and geosystems in order to better understand the complete system of our planet.

More than 800 employees work at different locations in Bremerhaven. The AWI campus encloses six complexes of buildings and various other single buildings are distributed over the city.

How to get here

Bremerhaven is located in north-western Germany, in the North of the Hanseatic city Bremen. Via Bremen or Hamburg Bremerhaven can be reached by car, as well as by long-distance and regional trains.

Arrival by train

Trains of the Deutschen Bahn and the Elbe Weser railways (EVB) operate at regular intervals from Bremen and Hamburg to Bremerhaven. 

To AWI Campus (buildings A, B, C und E) & AWI Campus Bussestraße (building F)
From the central station of Bremerhaven you can take several bus routes:
- bus route 501 up to „Weserfähre“
- bus routes 505, 506 up to „Columbusstraße/Weserfähre“
- bus routes 440, 503, 507, 528, 531, 579 up to „Elbinger Platz“
From here it is a walk of 10-15 minutes. The map on the left shows you the way from the stops „Weserfähre“ and „Columbusstraße/Weserfähre“, the right one from „Elbinger Platz“. You can reach the AWI Campus Bussestraße (building F) at the turning to the Weser ferry in the Bussestraße on the right sight.

Additionally the bus route 510 goes directly from the central station up to „Doppelschleuse/AWI“, but just a few times per day. You can find the exactly timetable on the Website of VBN.

To Wegener-House (Building D):
To get to the Wegener-house of the AWI, you can take the bus routes 502, 505, 506, 508 and 509 from the central station and get off at the stop "Hochschule Bremerhaven". From there cross the "Theodor Heuss Platz" and go to the "Linzer Straße" and after a few minutes walking you reach the Wegener-House (see left map, the way from "Linzer Straße" is marked).

Alternatively you can drive by the bus 501 up to the stop "Deutsches Schiffahrtsmuseum" which holds directly in the parking bay before the Wegener-House (see right map). However this bus runs seldom. You can check the schedule with VBN.

Arrival by car

You reach Bremerhaven by car about the federal motorway A 27 which leads from Bremen to Bremerhaven. Taking the exit "Bremerhaven Mitte" you can reach the central locations of the Alfred Wegener Institute.
