YOUR NORTH SEAPORT FOR INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY
Thanks to its extremely favorable geographical location at the mouth of the Elbe, Cuxhaven occupies a key position for a large number of markets. As a future-oriented business location, Cuxhaven is located directly on one of the most important shipping routes in Europe. In the harbor, which is located on the wide, sea-deep water, no locks hinder direct access to the North Sea.
Positively into the future
The private sector and the Lower Saxony state government have therefore invested hundreds of millions of dollars in recent years to decisively prepare and advance the development of the necessary structures at the Kugelbake, as well as in the other seaports in Lower Saxony.
HHWG PROTECTS CULTURAL PROPERTY
The Cuxhaven landmark is the spherical beacon, which is clearly visible on both the water and land sides. The 28.4 m high sea mark forms the border between the Elbe and the North Sea. The HWG has been taking care of the maintenance of Cuxhaven's cultural assets since its inception.
