Around 1250 there was the village of Hardenstrom . This name can be interpreted as a strong current of the Ochtum. The name Strom was first mentioned in a document at the end of the 16th century .

middle Ages

The village of Strom behind the Ochtumdeich includes the areas Stellfeld , Wiedbrook , Hove , Malswarden and Hardenstrom , which were combined as Feldmark Hardenstrom . Strom belonged to the parish of St. Martini in Bremen . The deserted places (called 1187) and Malswarden (around 1200 Molswerde ) from the Seehausen parish were added as villages at the end of the Middle Ages .

In the 11th - 13th centuries, the Goh Vieland was cultivated through drainage ditches and dykes, and in 1158 Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa allowed the construction of the Vieland to be built. The diocese of Bremen received state rule in 1180.

Modern times

The Winkelhof , previously owned by a Commander of the Teutonic Order , came into the possession of Bremen in 1583. Since 1598 the area was separated into Upper and Lower Vieland.

In 1750 electricity came to the parish of Rablinghausen . In 1812 it had 211 inhabitants. In 1848 Strom received a small secondary school with one class and 18 students. A new school building was built at Stromer Deich 40. The road from Rablinghausen to Strom was built in 1874 and shortly afterwards the restaurant Zur Ochtumbrücke opened . In 1877 there was a fire fighting community that became a compulsory fire brigade . Electricity now had around 400 inhabitants. The one-class school came to the community in 1889. A new building with two classrooms was built in 1910 at Stromer Landstrasse 26a. The road to Brokhuchting was paved in 1911 and the bridges over the Ochtum near Sandhausen and Steding were built in 1924 and 1937/39 and the Stromer Landstraße was expanded.

After 1945

In 1945, Strom was incorporated into the city of Bremen . The first head of the local office was Hermann Mester , who worked as a senator from 1946. The compulsory fire brigade was converted into a volunteer fire brigade in 1948 and received a new fire station and a new fire engine in 1964 .

In 1955 the place was connected to the municipal drinking water supply. He was also hit by the great storm surge in 1962. That is why the barrage on the Ochtum was built until 1979. The large power lines were built in 1963 and 1977 and the "Mühlenhausen" sewage works and pumping station in 1967. The school became a primary school for grades 1 to 4 in 1977. The construction of the freight center between Seehausen and Strom in 1983 attracts a lot of traffic through the rural district.

Freight center

In addition to residential development, the Bremen Freight Transport Center (GVZ) has been developing since 1985 in the Seehausen and Strom districts and the harbors district . The GVZ covers almost 500 hectares, half of which has been occupied. Around 150 companies employ over 8,000 people here. The hall space for logistics, production and wholesale covers an area of ​​1.2 million m². The post freight center DPD German Parcel Service is one of the larger companies . The GVZ Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH Bremen is representing the interests of companies. The largest high-bay warehouse in Europe is located here. Since the GVZ was founded, it has been ranked first according to a ranking table from an ILS study.

The GVZ can be reached directly by rail and the 281 motorway .



With the bus route 61 of the Bremer Straßenbahn AG (BSAG) Rablinghausen, Strom and Sandhausen are connected. In the longitudinal direction, the district is accessed by the Stromer Landstrasse , which leads in an easterly direction to Woltmershausen and Neustadt and in a westerly direction to the districts of Deichhausen and Sandhausen in the city of Delmenhorst .


The federal motorway 281 , which was completed in 2014, leads directly to the Woltmershausen freight center in the direction of Seehausen and with a connection in the direction of Deichhausen and Altenesch . It should relieve the Stromer Landstrasse, which runs parallel, significantly. A new part of the federal highway 212 between GVZ / state border Bremen towards Huntebrück should also lead to traffic calming in the district.

Biking and hiking trails

In Strom and Seehausen, electricity is developed through the cycle path on Stromer Landstrasse, which leads west to Deichhausen, Sandhausen and Delmenhorst . From Strom, at the state border, a road leads to Seehausen with the popular cycle path on the left Weser dike, which leads from the Neustadt outer harbor to the Hasenbüren sports harbor and the Ochtum barrage . There are connections to the Niedervieland marshland . Huchting is reached by the still inadequate connection of the Brokhuchtinger Landstrasse through the Ochtum lowlands.
