Is this basically Le Havre relocated to Germany?

This game has absolutely nothing to do with Le Havre - at all. They both share some theme (they are about harbors), but that's it. Obviously, the artwork looks similar.

Ok. I was just curious. Le Havre is a good game, but I own it and don't have a need for duplicates.

chalk and cheese
Five years later, and for future readers:

Le Havre and Bremerhaven are completely different. They are both great games. But great in completely different ways. The only thing they really have in common is harbor/port themes and Klemens Franz’s soulful quayside visuals and palette. (Oh, the fresh-squeezed-orange-juice tones of that setting sun!) Franz understands something about the melancholy beauty of slightly run-down ports.

Otherwise, they are as different as chalk and cheese. If anything, Bremerhaven, which is a logistics puzzle and contract-fulfillment juggling act, reminds me more of Loyang, in terms of satisfying and timing customer orders, and the need to ensure a short- but also medium-term supply of the stuff you’ll need to complete those orders/contracts on time.

But really Bremerhaven is unique unto itself. And it’s an amazing game—up there at the level of a Rosenberg for me—that perfectly complements Le Havre on a shelf.
