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.

Lugares de interés de las ciudades

El Ayuntamiento de Bremen, construido entre los años 1405 y 1408 en el mismo centro del casco antiguo de la ciudad, es uno de los edificios más relevantes del Gótico y del Renacimiento del Weser en Europa, una joya de la historia arquitectónica y artística y un representativo lugar de celebraciones. Este magnífico edificio de hermosas salas festivas ha sido declarado Patrimonio Cultural de la Humanidad por la UNESCO en el 2004 como testimonio único de la autonomía y soberanía burguesa del Santo Imperio Romano. A pesar de no ser Patrimonio Cultural de la Humanidad, bien vale una visita: el restaurante del sótano del Ayuntamiento de Bremen (Bremer Ratskeller) con la mayor colección de vinos alemanas.

Desde hace diez años, la ciudad de ultramar Bremen – uno de los proyectos de construcción urbanística más grandes de Europa – ha ido evolucionando con rapidez en un barrio nuevo y vivo. La avenida que se prolonga a orillas del río, denominada Schlachte, invita a un distendido paseo a lo largo del Weser a través del barrio Stephanviertel hasta el barrio Hansa de esta ciudad de ultramar. La economía del puerto y la industria tradicionales han permanecido en el futuro y confieren a esta ciudad fluvial su encanto inconfundible. En el Puerto de Europa (Europahafen) tienen constantemente lugar festivales al aire libre en torno al almacén XI junto al muelle Holzhafen y Fabrikhafen, así como mercados con regularidad.

Pequeñas y estrechas casas con entramado de madera procedentes de los siglos XV y XVI con callejuelas estrechas y angulosas entre las filas de edificios: el nombre del barrio proviene de que las casas se alinean una junto a la otra como las cuentas ensartadas en un cordón, en bajo alemán “Schnoor”. Otra interpretación dice que en esta zona del antiguo barrio de pescadores vivían los fabricantes de cabos. En Schnoor los visitantes van y vienen a orillas del Weser entre el taller del orfebre y el del artesano, descansan en cualquiera de las numerosos cafeterías o restaurantes, o curiosean en las muchas y pequeñas tiendas.

La Galería de Arte de Bremen es uno de los principales museos alemanes patrocinados que alberga obras de varios estilos artísticos.

Las colecciones ofrecen una imponente visión global del arte europeo y del arte moderno internacional: pinturas y esculturas, obras gráficas impresas y artes mediáticas, desde el Renacimiento hasta el presente. Asimismo, cabe destacar la pintura francesa y alemana de los siglos XIX y XX. Tremendamente asombrosas resultan las exposiciones especiales, tales como las obras de los impresionistas Monet y Cézanne o las pinturas de Corinth, Liebermann y Paula Modersohn-Becker.

Since 1988 Bremen Music Festival has been offering its guests classical music and more – from early music to contemporary sounds. 

The festival traditionally opens with its brilliant Eine Grosse Nachtmusik – a 'concert buffet' of 24 different performances held in and around Bremen's UNESCO-listed market square. The Musikfest Surprise series in Bremen's Überseestadt district brings together world music from all five continents. And for some local colour, why not drop in on the Arp Schnitger festival, dedicated to the famous German organ builder?

The Bremen Freimarkt is one of Germany's oldest fairs, with a history dating back more than 950 years. The main event is the procession on the second Saturday.  In recent times, a feature of the Bremen Freimarkt has been the historical market on Liebfrauenkirchhof where traders dressed in quaint costumes offer their wares and revive the crafts, trickery, music and culinary treats of yesteryear.
