Where is this?

This is not a trick quiz question. I took this photo whilst coasting on ss MATRA in 1965. I think it is Bremen but I am not quite sure, it could perhaps be Antwerp or some other continental port. I am sure someone will either recognise the port or the tugs.

My memory says it is Bremerhaven as well but I wasn't quite sure enough to post it as a definite.

I think it is Rotterdam.The tugs give the answer I think.But I can't say which harbour ,I am not that familiar with the port.

Definitely not Hamburg because I only went there once and it wasn't on Matra. On the voyage in question we went to Antwerp, Rotterdam and Bremen. Not knowing myself I thought maybe someone would recognise the funnel on the tug, or perhaps the building on the horizon.
Derek, I am virtually certain that is not a Brock's ship to starboard, but I wouldn't put money on it. The superstructure doesn't look quite right to me. When I first saw it I thought it was a Wilhelmsen ship, but no money on that one either.
