Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas. It is located on the island of New Providence Island and takes almost all of it. It is the undisputed center of the Bahamas and all the authorities, as well as Parliament, are there. Nassau is the epitome of jet sets and is known for its exclusive hotel complexes, such as the Atlantis Paradise Bahamas. For almost all tourists who travel to the Bahamas, the journey starts in Nassau, where the main airport is located.

- In 1790, Nassau was no more than a small village. The map of 1788 shows Bay Street with Fort Nassau. The British Colonial Hotel was built on the foundations of Fort Nassau. To the east, it spread over seven blocks to Culmer Street, today Victoria Avenue. The location of Fort Montagu was described as: "in the country" - far away in the countryside. To the west there were only three blocks to Augusta Street. To the south, Nassau expanded to West Hill and East Hill Street. Both have been preserved to this day. East Hill Street ends three blocks inland from Bay Street, and between West Hill Street and the British Colonial Hotel is now just one block away.
- The colored population lived separately from the white in "suburbs" or settlements on the outskirts of the city. On the western edge of Nassau, this was Delancey Town. In 1821, district governor Lewis Grant ordered the establishment to be built on the southern outskirts of the village, behind the hill or "Over-the-Hill" Bain Town and Grant's Town. The southern border of these two towns is Wulff Road today. The southern chain of hills was called Blue Hills. The Blue Hills valleys filled with negerhutts.
- John Murray, Earl of Dunmore was appointed Governor of the Bahamas in 1787. He had to build the Manie houses, especially fortifications. This is how Fort Fincastle emerged at the highest point of the city, in the district of Bennet´s Hill. As summer residence he commissioned "The Hermitage". A large plot of land stretching west of Stanley Plantage to Dick's Point. Parts of it are now called the Dunmore Village.
- The map of 1926 ends in the east just behind Church Street, where today the older bridge leads to Paradise Island. The next piece of land to Fort Montagu is called Waterloo. In the west it ends with Fort Charlotte and the Chippingham district. To the south, the city border was on Louis Street.
- Around this time, a country boom began in Nassau. American speculators bought the plantations on the western outskirts of the city. It was there that the districts of Westward Villas and Grove were built. In January 1940, the airport was opened in the Oakes Field district. South of the Old Town, after Louis Street, the Center-Ville district grew. To the east, behind Fort Montagu, lies the Blair Estate, where terraced houses were built. There is a small neighborhood to follow. High Vista.
- In the 18th century, colored people had built huts following High Vista, a settlement called the Creek Village. The Africans, however, sold their land again and moved further inland. This land and other plots, around 500 ha, was bought by the then Supreme Judge Robert Sandilands. He built a village there and granted about 100 land rights for plots ranging from 4,000 to 40,000 m², which resulted in Sandiland Village and Fox Hill Village. Since 1776, cotton plantation Winton has existed on the eastern tip of the island with a Governor Dunmore watchtower. Today, these are the districts of Winton Heights in the northern half and Winton Meadows in the south.
- Only in the last 50 years did the construction areas in the south of Nassau shoot out of the ground. Some of these were coastal swamp areas that were being spilled, some of these "sub-divisions" consist of only one street with houses on both sides. Partly, they are sheltered and guarded on canals, like Port New Providence. Most of the former plantations, which were made from speculators to builders.
Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas, the largest city in the archipelago, banking, shopping and administrative center.
The town was founded as Charles Towne, on April 12, 1695 in Nassau, after Wilhelm von Oranien-Nassau, King William III, 1688. of England, renamed. Soon 160 houses, 1 church and 2 government buildings were counted. From 1697 onwards, the site was increasingly used as a pirate base, with up to 20 ships with around 70 crew regularly in port. For this reason, in 1703, Nassau was attacked by a combined Spanish-French fleet and almost completely burned.
In April 1718, former captain Wood Rogers was appointed by the King of England as the new governor of the island (1718-1721 and 1729-1732 †), reaching Nassau in October of the same year. By offering impunity to pirates when they enter the British military service, he provides peace and tranquility on the island and began a scheduled reconstruction. The successors of Wood Rogers, John Tinker 1738-1758 † and William Shirley 1758-1768, continued the development and expansion of Nassau. In 1780, there was the first real city map, and it was revised in 1788.
John Murray, Earl of Dunmore, Virginia's last royal governor, was appointed governor of the Bahamas in 1787. He had a dyke and brought Nassau a large number of fortress structures: Fort Charlotte and Fort Fincastle, contests in Winton, Potter´s Cay and Hog Island (Paradise Island). Even the former residence did not please him. On West Street, he had Dunmore House built, today "The Priory," and on East Bay Street, he had a summer residence called The Hermitage. Only its replacement in 1796 prevented further colloidal structures.
- In 1844, Nassau had 8,000 inhabitants.
The American Civil War of 1861-1865 brought wealth and a construction boom again through the good business of the blockbusters. The first "tourists" also came in the form of businessmen. The Royal Victoria Hotel opened in 1861. One night spent $9. In 1900, the Hotel Colonial was completed, it burned down in 1922, a year later, the new opening was opened. At the turn of the year 1925 / 26 it was possible to stay at the Fort Montague Beach Hotel.
In 1929, Pan Am Air Service started regular air traffic between Miami and Nassau. Bay Street is the main shopping street. 300 years ago, there was only a poor footpath under palm trees. Hurricanes destroyed the entire region in 1861 and 1929. Several fires changed the road image over the decades.
With the new millennium, the biggest changes on Nassau's waterfront are likely to take place. A new cruise ship terminal is to be built on the southern coast of New Providence near Coral Harbor. With the departure of the shipping lines, the entire waterfront becomes free. A pedestrian promenade with bars and restaurants will take you from the British Colonial Hotel to the Potters Cay.
In April 2009, the government signed a $50 million contract. The Dutch company Royal Westminster Boskalis is to extract 1.9 million cubic meters of sand from the port basin. With this material, the Arawak Cayim west is enlarged by 10 hectares. At the same time, the eastern area between Woodes Rogers Wharf and Armstrong Street ( 1 km ) is to be extended by 10 m to build a promenade.
There are no direct flights to Nassau from Germany, so you always have to change trains. Most of the connections are via the USA (with a change in Atlanta or New York).

The port of Nassau is one of the leading destinations for cruise tourists. The Prince George Wharf is located right in the city center and can accommodate up to 6 cruise ships. However, there are plans to redesign port facilities. Firstly, we are considering building a completely new port for cruise ships. On the other hand, the port of Nassau is being further extended and deepened. With the dredging sand, the Arawak Cay is extended to the west by 500 m. In future all cruise ships will be handled there.
On the street
Nassau is not a very car-friendly city. The traffic is very often congested in the city center, especially at Bay Street / East Bay Street. Parking is scarce, and if so very expensive. It is therefore best to leave your car in the hotel. However, Nassau is very pedestrian-friendly due to its small size and flat terrain.

- Government House. At the end of George Street, the house was named after its owner, Richard Fitzwilliam, who replaced Wood Rogers as governor in 1733 and moved to this residence from around 1737. All island governors lived in the house until 1786 Lord Dunmore came. He built the so-called Dunmore House on a hill on West Street. Mount Fitzwilliam was sold between 1798 and 1802 by Paul Dromgold to the government, which established a new Government House between 1803 and 1806. Shortly after completion, new Governor Cameron and his family moved in after living in Dunmore House for two years. In 1929, the building was damaged by a hurricane so severely that it had to be demolished. The current building, in pink and white, was taken over by Governor Sir Bede and Lady Clifford in 1932. A generous renovation was carried out in 1940, after which it was the residence for King Edward VIII, who resigned in 1936, now Duke of Windsor. He had to quit his job because he married the divorced American Wallis Warfiels-Simpson, and became a "punished" governor in the Bahamas. In Europe, there were rumors in the Cold War between Britain, Hitler Germany, and Spain that the ex-king should be abducted and murdered. After the end of the war, in May 1945, he retired completely to private life. Until 1973, it was the seat of the Queen's representative. The changing of the guard takes place every other Saturday at 10 am. On the main staircase there is a 1820 Columbus statue, almost 4 meters high.
- Queen's Staircase. 1793-1795 staircase carved by slaves in the Limestone with 66 steps as the shortest connection from Fort Fincastle to the lower Fort Nassau. It was originally planned to break a traveling path through the rock. The declaration of the slave liberation ended the construction. Fort Nassau was built in 1697. It was destroyed during the Spanish-French invasion. In 1744, it was rebuilt. In 1837, it was ground and later the British Colonial Hilton Hotel was built.
- Water Tower. A water tower from 1928, 38 m high, with an elevator or over 216 steps you reach the viewing platform, at the same time a light fire, 65 m above sea level. The water tower was built on the highest point of the then town of Nassau, on the Bennet´s Hill. It can be visited. Opened: Mon - Sat 9:00 - 16:00. Price: $1.
