Bremen, Town Hall

Bremen: Hanseatic and cosmopolitan.

Bremen has many faces. The Hanseatic city is the beating heart of north-west Germany and home to the world-famous Town Musicians of Bremen. It is a multifaceted city where history, tradition, science, nature and culture come together in a blend that is fascinating without fail. Bremen is well worth a visit and interest in the 1,200-year-old city by the river is booming.

Bremen perpetuates tradition

Its citizens are proud of Bremen's long tradition as a Hanseatic city, but they would never boast about it. Tradition and a cosmopolitan lifestyle come together here by the Weser. You can enjoy a coffee in the "gute Stube" (best room), the name given to the area around Bremen's market square with its magnificent Town Hall (UNESCO World Heritage Site), or sip a chilled beer on the lively "Schlachte" waterfront. In days gone by, ships from all over the world docked here. You can still see some great classic vessels, including the Alexander von Humboldt. The city has so much more to explore, including the Schnoor – Bremen's oldest district – or the unusual architecture on the elegant Böttcherstraße. Autumn is a time for fun and celebration among Bremen's residents and visitors, as this is when the Freimarkt, Germany's oldest and third-largest funfair, opens its doors. Every year, over four million visitors enjoy all the thrills of this great annual fair with its countless rides and beer tents.

Bremen inspires curiosity

A trip to Bremen can also involve a flight to the stars, a walk through a whirling tornado or an expedition through the humid jungles of Borneo. Visitors can experience the tremors of the earthquake sofa at the Universum Science Center or embark upon an eighty-minute voyage around the globe at the Übersee-Museum. Bremen's educational attractions make you eager to discover more and set off on new adventures. How about a visit to the International Space Station, built in Bremen? Or maybe some off-road training in one of Germany's most modern car factories?

Bremen is brimming with art and culture

Old masters and a vibrant youthful culture come together in perfect harmony in Bremen. Take a stroll along the "culture mile", visiting the internationally renowned Kunsthalle art museum or the sculpture or design museum along the way. The nearby theatre also has a lot to offer. Just a few steps from here, by the banks of the river, Bremen's inhabitants come together in summer for the Breminale, a great riverside festival, and daring acrobats arrive for the La Strada street performance event. The Hanseatic city by the Weser is certainly a vibrant destination offering a wealth of experiences.

Bremen invites you to enjoy the finer things in life

Bremen is so much more than just a "beautiful historic city". It is also "unpretentious" and a "stress-free family city" with a wide range of recreation facilities. At least, that's what people across Germany said when questioned in a recent survey. And Bremen is green! Not just because of two of the Hanseatic city's great emblems – Werder Bremen football club and the traditional brewery Beck und Co. – which have made this colour synonymous with the city. The cityscape also impresses with its lush green spaces, beautiful parks and charming gardens. All of which make Bremen an ideal city to explore by bike. This green metropolis is also renowned for its culinary delights. From delicious chocolates and fine wines to full-bodied coffee and refreshing beer – many famous brands have made the old trading town their home. But the city excels in more than just production. Bremen is also the perfect place to savour the finer things in life. A wide selection of restaurants, bars, cafés and craft producers invite you to sample their wares.

The legendary Town Musicians of Bremen

Bremen's inhabitants are proud of their fairy tale animals, regarded as an unofficial emblem of the Hanseatic city alongside the Town Hall and Roland UNESCO World Heritage Site. A survey has clearly illustrated the city's strong association with the fairy tale, with almost one third of respondents across Germany spontaneously mentioning the Town Musicians of Bremen when questioned about the city. The four companions can be spotted in the form of a number of statues all over the city. The largest is situated right next to the west side of the Town Hall. And every Sunday between May and October, they tell their fairy tale live and in colour on the Domshof square.

The Breminale, the huge arts festival in Germany's smallest federal state Bremen, has been held on the Weser riverbank every summer for around 25 years. Excitement reaches fever pitch in the red and white striped tents, on and around the stages and everywhere else on this festival site which stretches for almost a kilometre, as around 100 bands entertain hundreds of thousands of visitors with an extremely diverse and thrilling programme.

This Weser riverbank festival is a success story – and the reputation built up by the Breminale over the last few decades is fully deserved. It's not a complicated formula but the secret lies in engaging top-class artists and constantly coming up with fresh ideas and surprises for people walking to and from the stages. Right through from midday to late at night, jugglers and entertainers, independent theatre troupes and traders, outdoor art, a children's programme, an open-air big screen, dance, literature and readings are as much part of the festival as a vast array of international food and drink. It's the mix of different cultural strands that makes the Breminale atmosphere unique. Perhaps the free admission to every event makes everything just a touch sweeter and contributes to the light and airy festival vibe. Ever increasing visitor numbers are the best recommendation.
