Bremen Bürgerpark. A park paradise in the heart of the city.

Bremen Bürgerpark is a wonderful illustration of how nature can be 'designed' by man. This park paradise covers 202 hectares in the heart of the city.

Palaces, residences and their parks are all very well, but what about those towns and cities which were not royal seats? Bremen grew enormously in the mid-19th century, but there were few green spaces and the senate had no money. So the locals came together and created their own parks instead. Today, Bremen Bürgerpark is the largest privately financed municipal park in Germany. It remains one of the most accomplished landscaped gardens of the 19th century, and is generously supported by 2,600 association members and numerous benefactors. Wooded areas with grand old trees, spacious lawns, watercourses, fountains, bridges and lakes all combine to create a green canvas full of romantic charm. The geometric formality is broken up by an intricate network of paths offering constantly changing vistas. A series of streams and small lakes serve as havens of tranquility and add another dimension to the parkland scenery. The nature trail has 15 stopping points where people of all ages can learn more about plants, animals and their habitats. The park may be explored on foot, by bike or in a rowing boat. Its picturesque charm is enhanced by architectural features from around 1900, for instance the Meierei restaurant, a Swiss-style building. The café at Lake Emmasee has been serving coffee and refreshments since 1867. After the original building was destroyed in the Second World War, a new café was built and opened in 1960. Nearby attractions: Worpswede artists' village is situated close to Bremen in an area known as 'Devil's Moor'. Worpswede became a famous artists' community at the end of the 19th century and remains so to this day. There is also lots to see and do in Bremerhaven, including museums and exhibitions, an old and a new port, and a series of visitor attractions extending from the Zoo am Meer to the Maritime Museum. Just a short hop from Bremen's old quarter, the Kunsthalle art gallery displays an important collection of art and has acquired a fine reputation for its special exhibitions.

Ayuntamiento y estatua de Rolando

Bremen: Dos Patrimonios de la Humanidad

Bremen no suele estar en los itinerarios turísticos por Alemania, pese a que la ciudad está llena de motivos para dedicarle algo de tiempo. Allí se inventó el café descafeinado, es el destino para Los músicos de Bremen, el famoso cuento de los hermanos Grimm; se produce la cerveza Beck’s y cuenta con un par de lugares inscritos en la lista del Patrimonio de la Humanidad de la Unesco: el Ayuntamiento y la estatua de Roland. El Ayuntamiento Teniendo en cuenta el especial estatus de Bremen como ciudad-estado, el edificio del Ayuntamiento aún cobra mayor relevancia. El edificio es de principios del siglo XV y está considerado no sólo uno de los más impresionantes de Alemania sino uno de los mejores ejemplos del gótico en Europa, aunque con el paso de los años se añadieron detalles renacentistas a su fachada. En el interior podemos conocer la relación de la ciudad con la liga Hanseática. Aunque la curiosidad, una vez cruzamos la puerta, es la de poder comer en un restaurante con 600 años de antigüedad y bebernos alguna botella de vino de la gran variedad de referencias que encontramos en la bodega. La estatua de Roland Encontramos la estatua en la misma plaza del Ayuntamiento, en la Am Markt (plaza del Mercado). Son 5,47 metros de Rolando, de piedra caliza, que junto con el pedestal, la columna y el baldaquino hacen un total de 10,21 metros. En sus manos sostiene la espada Durandarte, símbolo de justicia. El enorme tamaño y la ubicación de la estatua no es un hecho fortuito en absoluto. Representa la independencia y los derechos de la ciudad, relacionados con la libertad de comercio. Hay más. La estatua lleva en la plaza desde 1404, pero antes había tenido otra ubicación. Cuentan que cuando surgieron problemas entre la ciudad y la iglesia los comerciantes la pusieron mirando a la catedral: “Vosotros ahí y nosotros aquí”.

Youpodia Popguides - Around Bremen with Johannes Strate

You know this: In traditional city guides recommend Bars and Clubs are full of tourists - none of the alleged insider's tipps is one any longer. With the Youpodia Popguides, we have chosen another way. In the Popguides real insiders share their best tipps and favorite places of their hometown: German Newcomer-Bands and young artists. ----------------------------------- AROUND BREMEN WITH JOHANNES STRATE ----------------------------------- Johannes Strate, born in Bremen, is not only the frontman of the band “Revolverheld”, since 2011 he started a career as a solo singer as well. His first record “Die Zeichen stehen auf Sturm” (“There is a storm brewing”) is more calm and deliberate than the stadium-rock sound of Revolverheld. The guitars are more gentle and trendy; the lyrics are sober-minded and more profound. ----------------------------------- DECLARATION OF LOVE ----------------------------------- What makes the city special for you? The quarter called “Steintorviertel”, the river Weser and - of course - the football club Werder Bremen. Which songs describe Bremen best? The supporters song “Lebenslang gruen weiss” (green-white [=the colours of Werder] for a lifetime) or “Round here” by Counting Crows ----------------------------------- SIGHTSEEING & CULTURE ----------------------------------- Which three sights should a tourist see for sure? A game of Werder Bremen, the famous “Town Musicians of Bremen” monument, all bars at the “Ostertorsteinweg” street and the Buergerpark. Which places are overestimated? The Main station and the area around. Which places do you show your guests first? The Beck’s brewery and the fact that our football club doesn’t give points to visiting teams. Which museum should you visit? The “Weserburg Museum”; it offers fascinating exhibitions and I like the building itself a lot. During study times, I had my best lectures over there. Where can I discover the new bands of the city? Tower, Roemer, and at the cultural centre called “Lagerhaus”. ----------------------------------- CULINARY & SHOPPING ----------------------------------- Which speciality should I taste? A bottle of Beck’s beer and a Bremen Bratwurst. Where do I get good and cheap food? Try the “Canova“ in the art gallery, or the “Coffee Corner“ at the beginning of the street called “Ostertorsteinweg”. Where do I get the most fashionable clothes? The shops are called “King Kong Superstore” and “Attitude”. Where can I expand my music collection? EAR records in the quarter called “Steintorviertel”. ----------------------------------- NIGHTLIFE ----------------------------------- Where do you start your party nights? Either at the “Wohnzimmer” (Ostertorsteinweg 99), at the little, comfortable bar called “Urlaub” in the eastern suburb (Fehrfeld 28) or at the “Schwanghalle” (Buntentorsteinweg 112). Where do I have to go to party best? Capri Bar, Modernes, Tower ----------------------------------- WHERE TO STAY ----------------------------------- If you plan a visit to Bremen, you should check the youth hostel. You will find a comfortable and favorable bed here: : http://www.hihostels.com/dba/hostels-Bremen-022006.en.htm ----------------------------------- CHECK THIS ----------------------------------- Check out our website for more information: http://www.youpodia.de/blog/birk-grueling/pop-guides-mit-johannes-strate-durch-bremen http://www.youpodia.de/blogs Credits Interview: Birk Grüling, www.youpodia.de Foto: Matthias Arni Ingimarsson

Das Viertel - Ostertor

Das Viertel-the hippest neighbourhood in Bremen

Welcome to the neighbourhood-Das Viertel. Once marked for demolition in 60's to build a motorway, thanks to fierce opposition from locals, the project did not go ahead. Today, it is the hippest, coolest neighbourhood of Bremen. You can find great street art or find shops like the uber cool designer store 'Kauf dich Glucklich' ( shop till happy ) and 'Die Sachenmacher' which stocks cool stuff from local Bremen artists like the recycled purse in picture plus you can party in coolest nightlife hotspots like Lagerhaus & dine in some great value restaurants like Angelino's- Italian that does a great spaghetti pomodoro for just 6 euros. Plus the Weser river and the Weserstadion (home to Werder Bremen )is just a stone's throw away..
