Create an itinerary including Deutsches Auswandererhaus
Follow the journey of the 7 million Europeans who left their homeland via the port of Bremerhaven and headed for the New World at Deutsches Auswandererhaus, where you'll experience the process through interactive exhibits. When you enter, you are given an electronic boarding pass, each with the personal story of an individual who either emigrated or found a new home in Germany. Listen to the evolving story you've been assigned to find out what kind of life your person ended up living. Visit the 1950s-style Roxy Cinema to watch short films about immigration in Germany and European emigration to the United States and Argentina. You can even search for your own ancestors using the museum's research facilities. The onsite restaurant blends culinary traditions of the Old and New World. Its large outdoor terrace features views of the harbor. Plan your Deutsches Auswandererhaus visit and explore what else you can see and do in Bremerhaven using our Bremerhaven trip planner.

  • The experience was interesting and I had no idea many Germans immigrated back to Germany after the WW2. It was disappointing as they advertise you can find out more about those who immigrated but...

  • The exhibition is very good and informative. There is a good mixture of text and “spoken” information. Enough spoken to bring the stories to life, but not so much it felt like a take too much time...

  • This is the best thing to do in Bremerhaven. Sometimes you forget that you are in a museum, because everything seems so true. The part with the stories of migrants is the best. Plus, almost everything is in English too. I was there for 5 hours and I could have stayed more. Don't miss it!
  • This is a really great place to visit. It's well laid out and I enjoyed it all especially the audio and the different classes of cabin all laid out and you feel like you are on a ship.
  • A very lively presentation of the migrants that were leaving Europa for (mostly) America. You can follow the story of certain people during their journey and beyond. Also it was shown that there was not only Auswanderung/emigration but also Einwanderung/immigration in Germany. People were, are and will be on the move.
  • Don't miss out! This is a great interactive experience for the whole family!
  • A Historical Place in Northern Germany at the Northsea where millions of Germans migrated with Cruise Ships to USA in search of a better future as well as contributing to the building and establishing the United States with the help of Europeans..
