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.

Attrazioni principali delle città

Costruito nel cuore della città tra il 1405 e il 1408, il municipio di Brema è una delle principali manifestazioni dell'architettura barocca e del rinascimento della regione del Weser in Europa, un gioiello della storia dell'arte e una cornice ideale per diverse manifestazioni. Lo sfarzoso edificio con le sue splendide sale rappresenta un'eccezionale testimonianza dell'autonomia e della sovranità della città all'interno del Sacro Romano Impero e per questa ragione è stato dichiarato patrimonio mondiale dell'umanità dell'UNESCO nel 2004. Non ha ricevuto lo stesso riconoscimento, tuttavia vale sempre la pena di visitarla: è la taverna del municipio, che ospita la più grande raccolta di vini tedeschi del paese.

Il quartiere Überseestadt, uno dei progetti urbanistici più ambiziosi in Europa, si sta trasformando rapidamente in una vivace area cittadina. È raggiungibile dal centro città facendo una passeggiata sul lungofiume Schlachte, che costeggia anche il quartiere Stephaniviertel. L'atmosfera tipica del quartiere Überseestadt è ancora viva grazie alla presenza delle attività portuali ed industriali che da secoli caratterizzano l'area. Il porto Europahafen ospita numerosi festival all'aperto e intorno al magazzino XI del porto manifatturiero e del legname vengono organizzati regolarmente diversi mercati.

Case a graticcio piccole e strette, costruite nel quindicesimo e sedicesimo secolo e separate da vicoli tortuosi: il nome del quartiere richiama l'immagine delle case allineate come in un filo di perle, che nel dialetto locale si chiama proprio "Schnoor". Secondo un'altra interpretazione, in questa zona del quartiere vivevano i fabbricatori di corde. A pochi passi dal fiume Weser, il quartiere Schnoor offre la cornice ideale per una pausa in uno dei numerosi ristoranti e caffè o per un giro dei negozi, tra cui spiccano le oreficerie e le botteghe degli artigiani.

Il museo d'arte di Brema, tra i principali musei tedeschi nato da donazioni, offre spazi agli stili più vari.

Le collezioni offrono imponenti panoramiche dell'arte europea e dell'arte moderna internazionale: pittura e scultura, grafica e arte mediale dal Rinascimento fino ai giorni nostri. Uno dei punti focali è rappresentato dalla pittura francese e tedesca del XIX e XX secolo, mentre riscuotono grande successo le mostre temporanee organizzate a cadenza regolare nonché le opere degli impressionisti, quali Monet e Cézanne o i dipinti di Corinth, Liebermann e Paula Modersohn-Becker.
