The 37th Bremerhaven Festival Week was celebrated during July 27 - 31, 2011. Bremerhaven is a city at the seaport of the free city-state of Bremen, a state of the Federal Republic of Germany. It forms an enclave in the state of Lower Saxony and is located at the mouth of the River Weser on its eastern bank, opposite the town of Nordenham. Though a relatively new city, it has a long history as a trade port and today is one of the most important German ports, playing a crucial role in Germany's trade.
The replica of famous ship HMS Bounty visited Bremerhaven during the festival and to commemorate the event, a special postmark was issued depicting the Bounty. Many thanks to friend, Mr. Wolfgang Beyer for sending me a cover with this beautiful postmark.
