‘Kaiserhafen’ Bremerhaven temporarily unavailable

Big turn bridge locked

Due to a massive technical defect, the large turn bridge in the Bremerhaven overseas port had to be closed temporarily to shipping, road traffic and rail traffic. As the Kaiserschleuse lock is also not passable due to repair work, it is temporarily not possible to enter and exit the Kaiserhafen basin in Bemerhaven.

We are currently working at full speed to restore the navigability of the Kaiserschleuse lock. According to current plans, the Kaiserschleuse lock should be passable again on Sunday, April 4, 2021.
