Holidays to Bremen

From medieval houses to Weser Renaissance architecture, Bremen, the Hanseatic city on the Weser river, can look back on 1,200 years of history. The grand old buildings around the market square betray its roots as a trading centre, but Bremen has the feel of a city on the up.

Besides its cosmopolitan appeal, Bremen offers a journey back through the centuries, full of monuments to a distinguished history and bristling with enthralling stories. There are pretty little houses lined up like pearls on a string, donkeys that shake hands and a cathedral under close observation.

Bremen’s attractions include the ornate Weser Renaissance town hall (UNESCO World Heritage), the Schnoor – Bremen’s oldest quarter, the quaint buildings in Böttcherstrasse, the cathedral and the statue of Roland on the historical market square. The Roland, Bremen’s very own ‘statue of liberty’, has stood as an emblem of independence since 1404.
