A colorful spot in otherwise grey in grey

During a grey winter day of February 2004 I took this picture in the harbor of Wilhelmshaven.

The light ship got turned upsite down during a hurricane over the German North Sea in 1999 .

Repair would have cost millions an during times of GPC navigation such repair was not undertaken anymore

Viewing from the harbor side...

... to the KW-Bridge.

A view to the KW - Bridge

KW = Kaiser Wilhelm (Imperor Wilhelm)Bridge.
This bridge connects the Jade seaway to the harbor of Wilhelmshaven and was built in 1905. The two arches can be turned when oceangoing vessels have to pass.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Small little city in the North of Germany with lots of friendly people
  • Cons:Due to outflow of industry and reduced Navy presence, city seems to have financial difiiculties
  • In a nutshell:Worthwhile to see and enjoy - they do their best to please all visitors
  • Last visit to Wilhelmshaven: Feb 2004
