Most of the following websites will be in German and have no English version. We provide these, however, for the benefit of those traveling to Germany and wishing to play bridge at the German bridge clubs. Since the game of bridge is a universal language, there should be no major hurdle for the traveler to bridge the gap.

During the course of the evolution of the Internet and the updating of Websites, some of the following links will change. If the link becomes invalid, please let us know. If the visitor does not find the specific city on this web page, the best opportunity lies with the Deutscher Bridge-Verband e.V. where the visitor can enter the name of the city to discover the location of the bridge club. Please be aware that there are German letters accompanied with an Umlaut, such as the ä, ö, and ü, which may be questionable in the presentation.

It is also wise for any traveler to telephone ahead at all times and let the owners and/or organizers know of your arrival so that they can also plan ahead by knowing in advance of your arrival.

Geschiche: Established October 5, 1998, by Hans-Joachim und Marieluise Drunagel.Vorgeschichte: Ende meiner Berufstätigkeit, 1997, kam ich ins Grübeln, was ich mit der gewonnenen Zeit Sinnvolles anfangen kann. Spontan fiel mir dazu Bridge ein, na klar! Das Kartenspiel aller Kartenspiele weltweit. Von anderen erfuhr ich, dass man Bridge regelrecht erlernen müsse. Dies tat ich dann bei Matthias Schüller im Bridge-Club Bederkesa nach dem neuesten Bietsystem Forum D. Mein Mann, Hans-Joachim, erlernte das Bridgespielen heimlich zu Hause nach den Unterlagen, die ich vom Unterricht mitgebracht habe.

Wir wurden zunächst Mitglieder im Club Bederkesa und sammelten dort Turniererfahrung. Am 05. Oktober 1998 gründeten wir dann mit 13 Bridgern im Bürgerhaus Lehe den ersten organisierten Bridge-Club in Bremerhaven. Den ersten Anfänger-Kursus begleitete wieder Matthias Schüller, heute ein bekannter Bundes-Liga-Spieler und Angestellter des DBV. Durch gute Werbung, einer weiteren Leidenschaft meines Mannes, sowie weiteren Anfänger-Kursen wuchs unser Club schnell auf 35 Mitglieder. Am 01. April 2000 schlossen wir uns dem Deutschen Bridge Verband an und 18 unserer Mitglieder begannen dann, an unseren Montags-Turnieren auch Clubpunkte
