Due to the structural change experienced in the City of Bremerhaven, “Alte Bürger” is now dominated by vacant shops and dilapidated and neglected houses. Recent years have seen an exodus of businesses to other parts of the city, and the remaining small shops are battling for survival. Furthermore, some parts of “Alte Bürger” suffer from a high level of (long-term and youth) unemployment, a high number of residents with a migrant background, and a high proportion of people on welfare benefits. The former nightlife area is suffering from a severe loss of image.
