Maritime Mile K2
Discover Bremen’s maritime heritage in Vegesack.
The waterfront, exactly one nautical mile or 1,852m in
length, offers a host of attractions: the tall ship Deutschland
and other historical vessels at the museum harbour, old cap-
tains’ houses, the interactive Spicarium exhibition and rare
plants at the municipal gardens. Vegesack also boasts great
shops, art exhibitions, concerts, hotels and restaurants.
Train: RS1
Bus: 90,92,93,94 Stop: Vegesack station
Schlachte Embankment A3-C5
There is a fantastic choice of restaurants, bars and cafés
along the river Weser in the city centre. Festivals, boat
trips, plays and concerts appeal to visitors of all ages. In
summer, the beer gardens overlooking the water are a
popular spot. People also enjoy getting together here in
the run-up to Christmas when the promenade is
transformed by dazzling blue lights and pretty wooden
stalls for the Schlachte-Zauber Christmas market.

… to the fairytale city of Bremen!
There are so many different sides
to the city: you can enjoy a coffee
against the historical backdrop of
the market square, stroll through the
narrow lanes of the Schnoor quarter,
discovering something new around
every corner, or acquaint yourself
with curious local customs such as
the ice wager.
For those who prefer something a
little more cutting-edge, Bremen
puts science at your fingertips: during
a visit to the Science Center at Univer-
sum Bremen, for example, or on a
guided tour themed on space travel.
Modern architecture, meanwhile, is
an ever-present feature of our mini-
bus tour of the Überseestadt district.
The river Weser plays an important
role in Bremen. Relax and unwind on
a boat trip on its waters or delve into
the fascinating history of Bremen’s
docks. You might like to visit
Germany’s oldest man-made harbour
in Vegesack or explore the new dock-
lands in Bremen’s ever-evolving
Überseestadt district.
What would Bremen be without its
festivals and funfairs? The summer
weekends are jam-packed with all
kinds of open-air festivals and au-
tumn brings plenty of fairground fun
at the Freimarkt. Get into the festive
mood at the enchanting Christmas
market or broaden your horizons at
Bremen’s museums. There is always
something going on in Bremen.
Come and see for yourself!
We look forward to your visit!
Welcome …
Market square C4
The market square is the focal point of Bremen. In spite of
– or perhaps because of – its 1,200 years of history, it is a
particularly vibrant place. The town hall and Roland statue
together form a UNESCO World Heritage site.
St. Peter’s Cathedral, the State Parliament and the
Schütting guildhall complete the ensemble.
Tram: 2,3
Stop: Obernstrasse
Böttcherstrasse C4
This architectural ensemble, 110 metres in length, dates
back to the 1920s and is the most famous street in Bremen.
Formerly the lane in which the coopers (Böttcher in Ger-
man) lived and worked, Böttcherstrasse is today renowned
for its museums, its shops and its brick-built art deco
facades that link the market square and the Weser river.

Schnoor quarter C5
Bremen’s oldest district, the Schnoor quarter, is a maze of
lanes lined with narrow, timber-framed houses from the
15th and 16th century set close together like pearls on a
string (German: Schnur). The area is renowned for its cafés,
restaurants, goldsmiths and pretty little arts and crafts
shops, all of which are open on Sundays.

Überseestadt C2-3
Bremen’s former docklands are being transformed into a
vibrant quarter for the 21st century, with a great selection
of cafés, bars and restaurants. Lots to see and do, new
events all the time, modern architecture and the charm of
historical warehouse buildings: this port district in the midst
of change combines its maritime past with a pioneering

The Viertel (‘quarter’) E3
The Viertel is just a short walk from the city centre and
is the most colourful and bohemian area of Bremen.
Popular for kitsch entertainment and the arts, theatres
and museums, it offers a cosmopolitan flair and diverse,
offbeat nightlife. There are lots of bars, restaurants and
pubs and no closing time, so you can easily party till dawn.
Tram: 2,3
Stop: Theater am Goetheplatz
Blockland D1-F1
Farmhouses in a city the size of Bremen? Absolutely, but
only along the Blockland dykes. Whether you choose to
cycle, walk, go inline skating or even hire a canoe, this area
offers outstanding natural beauty and peace and quiet in
abundance. Traditional inns and friendly farm shops
beckon from the wayside to round off the perfect day out
for families and active holidaymakers.

Tall ship Deutschland Überseestadt
Schlachte Embankment
The first rays of morning sun fall upon the Town Musicians
statue and bathe the ornate facades of the buildings in a
warm glow as a new day begins on Bremen’s market square –
the focal point of the city. At the flower market, stallholders
creatively display their colourful pots and floral works of art,
while opposite the restaurant owners set tables for their first
visitors. This is where the heart of Bremen beats. The magnifi-
cent town hall attests to the city’s Hanseatic heritage and has
been a proud bearer of UNESCO World Heritage status since
2004. In front of it, the statue of Roland with sword and
shield has stood watch over the people of Bremen for more
than six hundred years.
Just a stone’s throw from here, the art deco treasures of Bött-
cherstrasse hark back to the days of ocean voyagers, the coo-
pers (Böttcher in German) who gave the street its name, the
life of artist Paula Modersohn-Becker and many other fascina-
ting chapters in Bremen’s history. Right next to Böttcherstras-
se, in the picturesque Schnoor quarter, there is even more to
discover. Pretty little houses from the 15th and 16th century
are lined up one after the other like pearls on a string (Schnur
in German), offering a journey back to long-forgotten times.
Ahoy there! It’s lunchtime and the boats along the Schlachte
Embankment offer a hearty welcome. You can enjoy life to
the full here, looking out over the glistening waters of the
river from under the shade of the trees. And along this popu-
lar promenade at the old Hanseatic docks, chefs at the many
restaurants delight their guests with fresh fish, exotic dishes
and local specialities.
The boats on the Weser set out on journeys near and far.
They head downriver, towards Überseestadt. Formerly a
district of shipyards filled with vessels of all sizes, it is now
becoming a hub for art and culture. Jazz rhythms can be
heard emanating from old warehouses during the music
festival and stylish bars serve cocktails with exotic names
like Singapore Sling and Sea Breeze. In the north of the city,
sailors can still be seen today. If you stroll along the Maritime
Mile in Vegesack, you’ll discover legacies of past times as well
as modern shipbuilding. You will hear stories of seafaring and
restless spirits, of new beginnings and hope, and of what life
was like at sea.

Sixdays All the fun of the fair in Bremen
Orbiting the Earth in a space shuttle, flying to the moon,
walk ing through a whirling tornado or going on an expedition
to the tropical jungle of Borneo – a trip to Bremen can be all
this and more. Sit and tremble on the earthquake sofa at Uni-
versum Bremen or journey around the world in 80 minutes at
the Ethnological Museum. Bremen’s ‘worlds of discovery’ are
places to inspire you. They will awaken your spirit of discovery
and your thirst for adventure and they educate and entertain
in equal measure: find out about the world we live in and how
it works, how it used to work, how it could work and what we
should change. Learning can be so much fun!
At the EADS Astrium, you’ll reach new heights! Find out what
life is like in space – how do astronauts live, eat and sleep?
Here at the laboratories in Bremen, engineers are working on
cutting-edge technology for space travel. Take a space-
themed guided tour for an authentic insight into space
station construction as well as the chance to look around
the ISS Columbus module, which was built in Bremen.
Head-first into the night and party until the early hours!
Barely has the sun disappeared below the horizon and a new
life emerges – full of excitement, glittering lights, music and
pulsating rhythms. At Germany’s biggest six-day race, dare-
devil cyclists fly round the velodrome at lightning speed – and
whoever is crowned champion is considered a winner in more
ways than one.
Or perhaps you’d rather go to the theatre or the concert just
around the corner ... great emotions move the audience to
tears, the tunes of the grand orchestra pull at the heartstrings.
Bremen certainly lives up to its musical reputation. Drums
beating out samba rhythms in February. Shakespeare in the
Park making the summer all the more magical. At the Christ-
mas market, the aroma of incense wafts over from the spice
stalls, while golden angels sing carols just a few steps away
and boats at the harbour twinkle with festive illuminations.
Every day brings a new experience. Another adventure.
More amazement.
The town hall and the Roland statue on the market square are on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. The importance of the
town hall is demonstrated by the distinctive style of its architecture, known as Weser Renaissance, which was prominent in north
Germany in the late Renaissance period. Bremen’s Roland is one of the oldest and most impressive of the Roland statues, which were
erected in Germany during the Middle Ages as symbols of liberty and trading rights. Together, the town hall and the Roland statue
bear testimony to the history of the Free City Republic of Bremen, from the 9th century through to the present day.
