Anchoring the expansive Market Square, the Unesco-listed, Gothic-style Town Hall has an ornate 17th-century facade. Next to it, ascend the tower at the 13th-century St. Peter’s Cathedral. Don’t miss 2 significant sculptures on the square: the 1404 statue of Roland, symbolising free trade, and a charming 1950s bronze depicting the Bremen Town Musicians of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale.
Take a stroll or a seat along the lively Schlachte Embankment, great for people watching and boat spotting. The riverside promenade is backed by a string of lively beer gardens and eateries. On summer Saturdays, a craft market, food vendors and live music enhance the atmosphere, and a Saturday flea market runs year-round. You can also enjoy a boat trip on the Weser.
Don't Go Home Without
Explore the Schnoor Quarter, a picturesque former fishing enclave in the city centre, along the banks of the Weser River. Wander cobbled streets lined with closely packed gabled and half-timbered houses, some dating back to the 15th century. Browse art galleries and gift shops and admire the imposing Gothic facade of St. John’s Provost Church before taking a break at one of the quaint cafés.
To make the tram ride to the city centre even easier, buy your tickets at the hotel’s reception. Be sure to order a Beck’s pilsner in the beer's home city. Get an overview of the production process, plus a tasting, on a guided tour of the original 19th-century brewery. If you’re more interested in rockets, book a tour of the Airbus Defence and Space facility, close to the hotel.
