The towering Atlantic sail City affords curious tourists the chance to see most of Bremerhaven from the podium. One feels safe with its steel fencing. The downside though is paying 3 euros. It's not much but considering the number of people who go to the podium, the building owner rakes in money.

A marvellous meal, dinner for four. We had steak and all the trimmings. Starting with bread plate, the soup, a tasty, salad and then the steak. Cooked to perfection English rare, juicy and very tender. Highly recommended, had no room for a sweet. Excellent meal and friendly, obliging staff.

Ok it is a bit strange you have to pay 3 euro to get to the top of the roof of your hotel, but let us consider that typical German :). The view is stunning and worth every cent.

Great place to inhale the fresh sea breeze and enjoy beautiful maritime landscape of the city. It is a perfect place for tourists who wants to get an overview of the city. Highly recommendable. The entry tickets are also cheap and handicap friendly.

My Mother and friends (with their 3 month old) were visiting me here in Bremerhaven! We decided to go up and check out the Platform view at the top of SAIL City! … It is only 3 Euro per person … and worth every bit of it. It is such a tranquil view of the entire city. You can see... More

Bremerhaven is filled with lovely people, but there is little in the city to see that is either lovely or engaging. I didn't get a chance to see the submarine they have on exhibit. Had I perhaps my opinion would be a bit more positive. The building, about the only sort-of high rise is not interesting, just something to do.... More

You have a perfect 360° view from this two level Platform. You can see the harbor, the city, you can look to the north sea, you can see the nuclear powerplant in the distance. For 3 Euro (cheaper for families and groups) it is totally worth to go to the Viewing Platform SAIL City!
