The ancient Hanseatic city of Bremen offers its visitors a variety of attractions. The market square in itself is an attraction - and it is surrounded by further impressive sights like the Town Hall that was built during the Weser Renaissance, the statue of Roland protecting city liberties right in front of it, the "Schütting" guild house or the "Stadtwaage" weighing house with its beautiful façade from the 16th century . Both the town hall and the statue of Roland are part of the UNESCO World Heritage.
Not far from the market square and from our hotel in Bremen, the Schlachte river promenade invites for a stroll. At the Schnoorviertel (String Quarter), visitors can gain insights in ancient times' living conditions. The narrow rows of houses from the 15th and 16th century are reminiscent of traditional craftsmanship. Also the living museum "Bremer Geschichtenhaus" (Bremen Story House) is located there.
Böttcherstraße stretches over 100 m. It was built early last century. Nowadays, it offers something for everyone: A vast variety of stores, restaurants and museums and even a casino are located in Böttcherstraße. Do not miss out on the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of a guided tour through the NASA Spacelab and the unique experience of an interactive exhibition at the Universal Science Museum in Bremen - a world to touch and try.
Nature lovers should definitely pay a visit to the rhododendron park Botanika during spring, summer, autumn or winter - every season there is different! Many more parks like the one between the ramparts and the 100-year old Am Wall Windmill shape Bremen's landscape and definitely increase our hotel's recreational value.
Some 20 kilometers outside the city center, the Vegesack district revives the city's maritime past. The sail training ship "Schulschiff Deutschland" (School Ship Germany) is mooring there, as well as some cutters, slightly swaying in the wind. The harbour area is lined by old captains' and storage houses.
One of Germany's most beautiful town halls can be found in the city of Bremen. Its pompous façade attracts tons of tourists each year. Along with the statue of Roland, the town hall became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004. Get a guided tour through the impressive building's insides, it is worth it!
St. Peter's Cathedral is located on the market square, right next to the Town Hall. The building is a true gem both from the inside and the outside. The cathedral's interior impresses with is early Gothic architecture. Its "Bleikeller" (lead basement) is particularly impressive. Go on an andventure and discover the mummy's history.
The drain in front of the State Parliament on the market square is called "The Hole of Bremen". If you toss a coin and get lucky, you will be able to hear the sounds of the Bremen Town Musicians: a crowing cock, a cat's miaow, a barking dog and the loud hee-haw of the donkey. At the same time, your coin is a donation to the Wilhelm-Kaisen charity that supports a range of projects for Bremen's citizens.
Eight kilometres away from the TRYP by Wyndham Bremen Airport, you will stumble over a unique whale-shaped building. The Universum Science Museum is home to interactive exhibitions about nature, humans and technology. However, this is not an ordinary museum. The interactive concept invites visitors to touch, try and explore the exhibits with their own hands.
Anyone who is interested in the history of transport, will find what they are looking for at the "Das Depot" exhibition. Bits and pieces of the city's tram and bus history from its very beginning until the 70s are on display. If you cannot get enough of all the nostalgia, take the chance for a trip with the historic tram line 15 from Bremen Central Station to the city centre between April and September.
