About the city

Cuxhaven is an independent city and the administrative centre of the Cuxhaven district in Lower Saxony. The city includes the northernmost point of Lower Saxony. It is located on the coast of the North Sea at the mouth of the Elbe River.

Alte Liebe is one of the most famous promenades in Cuxhaven, which has been turned into an observation deck. The embankment offers an incredible view of passing ships, and loudspeakers announce their names and origins. The tidal lands, listed by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage Site, are among Germany's most beautiful nature reserves.

Due to Hamburg's geographical position and historical affiliation, two main trade sectors have developed well: fishing and tourism. Cuxhaven fishing science has a long tradition. In 1885 a fishing harbour was built, and today Cuxhaven is Germany's most important fishing area. Tourists visit the city not only because of the sights and unique nature but also because of the developed healthcare system. Cuxhaven is home to two hospitals of the Helios group - Helios Hospital Cuxhaven and Helios Seehospital Sahlenburg. Seehospital Sahlenburg is the only medical centre in the Elbe-Weser region where specialists work with the spinal neuronavigation system.

Tourist infrastructure, sports and entertainment events, and cultural sites are not all the reasons to visit the city of Cuxhaven. Sandy and green beaches, family SPA centres, tall ships and yachts, and national parks leave pleasant impressions on adults and children.
