  • Wanderklaus

    At the Weserwehr is the last opportunity for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the Weser in Bremen. The next bridge is in Achim.

    Worth a visit, especially with small children, when they can watch the inland waterway from the pedestrian bridge and see how the water in the lock rises or falls.

    For cyclists a good transition over the Weser. The last crossing before Achim. At the Osterdeich, the beer garden invites you to take a break.

    The Weser weir in Bremen-Hastedt regulated at Weserkilometer 362 the water level of the Middle Weser. The Bremen Weser weir of 1911 was replaced in the years 1989 to 1993 by a completely new, put into operation on 10 June 1993. It is located about 180 meters downstream of the old weir.

    With a little luck you can watch inland skippers or the sport boat at the lock.

    Nice to breathe. The noise of the lock is great, but maybe not a place for the reading break.

    Great place, beautiful view, always worth a visit. The lock rushes nicely .. but is not the best place to take a longer reading break.

    Bremen has a hydroelectric power station since 2011. The power plant runs underground beside the
    existing Weserwehr and delivers an average of 39 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year. That's enough
    to supply about 15,000 Bremen households with electricity - and saves the atmosphere
    around 15,000 tons of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide annually. The plant with a capacity of up to
    ten megawatts (MW) is currently the largest tide-dependent run-of-river power plant in Germany.
    With low tide and high tide therefore fluctuates the power production. (Source: weserkraftwerk-bremen.de)

    I think during a visit still to the old Weserwehr that used to stand here. We always drove over with our bikes and had a look into the old halls with their turbines. But the new bridge is also very well done.

    The Heimelinger lock at the Weserwehr serves the ships at the transition from Mittelweser to Unterweser. The Weser is dammed here in Bremen. In the two locks you can watch from above as the ships in the two lock channels are driven up or down. Especially with children a great experience.

    In a big arc it goes on the bridge over the lock at the Weserwehr. From above, the inland waterway vessels can be observed during the passage. Especially with children a nice experience.

    The Weserwehr in Bremen, whether for pedestrians or cyclists, is always worth a visit. Watch ships or just the mass of water when they rush through.

    Is a very interesting section. At night by the light play even more beautiful to drive.

    Always a worthwhile visit. Especially when ships pass the weir. Off to the side are the remains of the Alte Weserwehr. In my childhood you could still see the old turbines while driving over the narrow bridge over the weir.

    About the lock at the Weser weir leads a very elaborate, almost spectacular bicycle and pedestrian bridge. Here you can actually drive without a descent to the weir. Very practical and a rarity at river crossings!
