The Free Hanseatic City of Bremen played an important role in the Hanseatic League in the middle Ages. Nowadays the buildings in the romantic old town are reminiscent of the history of the Hanseatic city.
The most important building is the town hall with its renaissance facade which reflects the historical importance and the wealth of Bremen. The market place in front of the town hall is a lively place dominated by the Roland, a five meter high statue from the 14th century.
In addition to the historic city center, the cultural landscape with numerous museums, theaters and concert halls invites you to discover. Not to be forgotten are the individual districts – quarters such as Überseestadt, which have developed in recent years from a port area to a modern quarter with architecturally exciting new buildings and a wide range of cultural activities, that form independent units of the city life of Bremen.
The historic Schnoor quarter offers small winding streets and restored houses from the 13th century with shops and restaurants. The banks along the river Weser invite for a nice dinner or a drink in one of the many restaurants and bars.
