JadeWeserPort

The Jade-Weser port, which recently opened in Wilhelmshaven. Jointly built by Bremen and Lower Saxony, this is Germany’s only deep-water port (18 meters deep) and will be accessible to giant oceangoing container vessels even at low tide. This is the first entirely planned German port that didn’t grow and accrete for hundreds of years.

The true competition, Rotterdam, has a port that’s 20 meters deep.
