Service & Facilities

  • Pick-up Service: Our Summer School team will pick up all participants from Bremen City Airport and Bremen Central Train Station. The best way to travel to Bremerhaven from overseas is by airplane via Frankfurt, Hamburg or Bremen. Furthermore, you can also travel to Bremen and eventually to Bremerhaven by train from any town or city within Germany - or from the neighbouring countries like the Netherlands (Amsterdam), France, Belgium within the Schengen agreement. Your German visa entitles you to a four days transit period.

It is a self-service cafeteria offering a three course meal. Vegetarian options are also available. We also provide drinks and snacks at our Summer School Students' Café. It is right next to the lecture rooms and will also be the place to meet and come together for students and lectures.
