Klimahaus® Bremerhaven 8° Ost

Doors between the Antarctic and Rain Forest

Imagine a journey around the world in just a matter of hours, along the eighth degree of longitude, passing through all the climate zones – this amazing experience becomes reality at the new Klimahaus Bremerhaven 8° Ost. 

The idea behind the large project is a simulated journey around the world measured at eight degrees 34 minutes east. This is the longitude of Bremerhaven and all the other locations on the journey: Switzerland, Sardinia, the Sahel, the African rain forest, the Antarctic, Samoa, Alaska and the north Frisian island of Langeness. Each destination has its own exhibition complex. This is where the specific climate can be experienced and flora and fauna observed. Short films and visual aids explain the (weather) phenomena of the respective region. Further exhibition areas explain how the elements fire, water, earth and air determine our climate, the perspectives for future climate development and the opportunities to protect the climate (and the environment). In a special weather studio, visitors can learn how 

What do the various climates on Earth actually feel like – from 38 degrees Celsius and 85 per cent humidity to a dry six degrees below zero? These extreme conditions also place great demands on the structural elements which have to guarantee optimum performance in each zone – in particular the doors, which are often subjected to different moisture and temperature conditions from each side. One example is the fire-proof doors (Teckentrup, Verl): They lead from the sandy desert and the Arctic desert into “climate neutral” escape staircases.
