The German Emigration Center chronicles the history of emigration in Germany, by those who tried their luck by relocating to countries like USA and Canada. It is located at the new harbour (Neuer Hafen), from where emigrants escaped to discover new lands. The centre has interactive exhibits that help visitors understand the plight of these people, and also include emigrants' personal histories and reconstructions of historical scenes. A restaurant here treats visitors to delicious fare after having learned so much about a piece of human history.
