Bremen, the 1,200 year old Hanseatic city and tenth largest city in Germany, has an irresistibly modern cosmopolitan quality where yesterday and today combine to give you a glimpse into innovation and inspiration.
The city's centuries-old history and heritage is plain to see – from the Market Square whose magnificent Rathaus and Roland statue won UNESCO World Heritage status in 2004 to Böttcherstrasse and the Schnoor, Bremen's oldest living quarter.
Step straight from the past into amazing places of hands-on discovery and surprise like the Universum Science Centre Bremen and botanika. Regenerated with riverboats and restaurants, the old inner-city harbourside Schlachte has reinvented itself as lively promenade along the River Weser right in the city centre.
Bremen, the pulsating heart of North West Germany and home to the world famous fairy tale Town Musicians, provides the warmest of welcomes!
