Bremon Germany was the Port of embarkation for many, yet it is
located about 10 miles south of the North Sea. Is the River navigable
for ocean-going ships? Was there some type of aggreement with Bremerhaven
a deep-watewr port?
Most certainly Bremen is accessible for ocean-going ships, it just depends
on the size. Larger ships have for at least a century used Bremerhaven. No
doubt, however, the effect of silting in the river has varied considerably
over the decades.
