Magic Cities fra A til Z
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.

By-highlights

Rådhuset i Bremen ligger midt i den gamle bydel. Det er opført i årene 1405 til 1408 og er et af Europas mest betydningsfulde bygningsværker fra gotikken og Weserrenæssancen, et bygnings- og kunsthistorisk klenodie og et repræsentativt arrangementssted. Den pragtfulde bygning med de smukke festsale blev i 2004 erklæret som UNESCO-verdenskulturarv som et enestående vidnesbyrd om borgerlig autonomi og suverænitet i Det Hellige Romerske Rige. Ligeledes seværdig, men ikke en del af verdenskulturarven, er rådhuskælderen, Bremer Ratskeller, med den meget store samling af tyske vine.

I løbet af de sidste ti år har Überseestadt Bremen – et af Europas største byplanlægningsprojekter – gennemgået en rivende udvikling og fremstår i dag som en ny, levende bydel. Hvis man går en tur ad den forlængede havnepromenade Schlachte langs Weser, kommer man forbi Stephani-kvarteret til hansekvarteret Überseestadt. Det traditionelle havneerhverv og den traditionelle industri er bevaret og sikrer Überseestadt dens helt unikke atmosfære. Europahafen lægger rum til utallige festivaler under åben himmel, og omkring det restaurerede pakhus Speicher XI ved Holz- und Fabrikhafen afholdes der jævnligt marked.

Små, smalle bindingsværkshuse fra det 15. og 16. århundrede med smalle, krogede stræder mellem husrækkerne: Kvarterets navn hentyder til, at husene ligger ved siden af hinanden som perler på en snor, plattysk „Schnoor“. En anden fortolkning går på, at rebmagerne boede i denne del af det gamle fiskerkvarter. I Schnoor kan de besøgende slentre rundt lige i nærheden af Weser mellem guldsmede- og kunsthåndværk, tage et hvil på en af de mange cafeer eller restauranter eller ose i de mange små butikker.

I Kunsthalle Bremen, der er et af de førende tyske donormuseer, har mange stilretninger deres plads.

Samlingerne giver en imponerende oversigt over den europæiske kunst og den internationale moderne kunst: malerier og skulpturer, grafiske tryk og mediekunst fra renaissancen til nutiden. Et væsentligt element er den franske og tyske malerkunst fra det 19. og 20 århundrede. Specielt imponerende er de regelmæssige særudstillinger og værkerne af impressionister som Monet og Cézanne samt malerier af Corinth, Liebermann og Paula Modersohn-Becker.
