Bremen Rundown

The worst thing you can forget to pack for your trip to Bremen, Germany, is your camera. From the medieval architecture in the centre of town to the surrounding green countryside, Bremenis sure to take your breath away. The first landmark you must visit in Bremen is the glorious Town Hall. This celebrated historical building was erected in 1410 and is lauded as one of the finest pieces of architecture in Europe. Next door is the famous statue of the Town Musicians of Bremen,who were fictional characters from one of the famous Brothers Grimm tales. Another impressive historical structure is St. Peter's Cathedral, which is more than 1,200 years old. From there you will want to stroll down Böttcherstrasse,an art nouveau-era street lined with breathtaking courtyards and ornate architectural facades as well as several museums and landmarks like the Glockenspiel. Bremen’s historical square also has a statue of the immortal Knight Roland, Europe’s ‘protector of trade’. After sightseeing in Bremen, you can immerse yourself in its wonderful culture. Enjoy some rich, strong German coffee and Kluten (chocolate peppermints) or one of the perfectly balanced domestic wines.

Bremen General Information

As the venerable home of SV Werder Bremen, one of the most successful top flight football clubs in Germany, the fine city of Bremen resonates with sports fans the world over. While Bundesliga action at Weserstadion is a requisite activity for even passive fans of “The “Beautiful Game”, the heart of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen offers other untold points of interest to discover.

The metropolis of 2.5 million people has a remarkable history and as far back as the year 150, was reputable enough to have made it on Ptolemy’s radar. A millennium later, Bremen was a powerful, strategic city with impressive stone walls and a magnificent cathedral. Because of fire damage and subsequent facelifts, the Bremen Dom is certainly not the same Romanesque masterpiece it once was. The majestic monument still soars over the cityscape however and unfurls countless interior gems. Other bygone heritage landmarks in Bremen’s Altstadt (Old Town) include the fine Marktplatz (Market Square), exceptional Rathaus (Town Hall) and 11th century Liebfrauenkirche (Our Lady’s Church). Superb contemporary landmarks dot Bremen’s skyline too, from the visionary Universum Science Center to the Museum for Art and Cultural History, Kunsthalle Bremen to the Overseas Museum of Natural History and Ethnography. Time your Bremen visit to coincide with Musikfest in August and September and for the love of beer, take a tour of the iconic Beck’s Brewery.
