88. Bremerhaven, Germany: The Hidden German Wonder Of The North

Why Bremerhaven, Germany?

Bremerhaven is a quiet seaside town. I met someone on the train who was from there when I visited and he said its small, there’s nothing to do and everyone knows each other. Umm…, I grew up in a place like that :-). Go see Bremerhaven if for nothing else to tell yourself you’re not in Dubai.
