Bremen has an aura of freedom and independence; and this is exactly the feeling everyone searching for cheap air tickets to Bremen gets upon arrival! It makes you wonder if this was the motive for the donkey, the dog, the cat and the rooster to leave their ordinary lives and seek a career in Bremen, at the famous Grimms’ tale. This is Germany’s oldest coastal city and could easily be compared to places like Hamburg. Organise your accommodation in one of Bremen’s cheap hotels across River Weser and feel your senses come alive, in an atmosphere scented with coffee, cocoa and tropical fruit. A particularly intimate experience you simply must have!
Bremen extends across the banks of River Weser and is one of Germany’s oldest and smallest cities. It was founded in the 8th century and until 789 it had already been transformed into a major trading port, attracting merchants, famous leaders and Christian apostles – no wonder Bremen was known as the “Rome of the North”!
Modern Bremen is still Germany’s second largest port and a top travel destination within Europe.
Historic buildings, examples of the Weser Renaissance, a tremendous amount of museums and art galleries and a wide variety of restaurants and cafes make up a destination more than interesting; exciting!
Bremen’s airport (Flughafen Bremen) is located 3.5 kilometres away from the city centre and can be reached by tram No. 6 and bus service Bus2fly.
Getting around Bremen
You can get around Bremen using the city’s extensive tram and bus networks. Fares start at 2.40€ and minimum taxi fare costs around 2.50€.
Start your day in Bremen at the Markt area, centred on Marktplatz, one of the most interesting squares in North Germany.
- At the square’s northern part, the St. Petri Cathedral (Dom St. Petri) is the first building you’ll notice. The cathedral was built in 1041 in an early gothic style, at the spot where once stood a wooden 8th century cathedral.
- Next to the cathedral stands the Bremen town hall, dating back to 1404. Although many restorations and additions have taken place since its first construction, the town hall forms a perfect example of the 17th century Weser Renaissance style
At the Town Hall’s front gate, stands the 13-metre-high statue of Roland, Charlemagne’s knight and protector of the city. Bearing on one hand the sword of justice and on the other a shield with a golden eagle, the statue is legendary; so long as it stands on Marktplatz, Bremen stays a free city!
Bremen’s ultimate landmark and symbol though is something else; the Bremer Stadtmusikanten, the “Town Musicians of Bremen” statue is the most popular and most photographed spot in the whole city.
The statue was inspired by the tale of Brothers Grimm where an usual company of four animals – a donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster – decided to leave their farm and seek a better future. So they became musicians in Bremen!
At their first night away from home, they found shelter at the cottage of a robber gang – a fact they weren’t aware of at the time. So they settled in, ate their dinner and started practicing their music. The way they managed to trick the robbers when they returned home, by stepping one upon the other and pretending to be some kind of horrible creature under the spells of a wicked witch, immortalised them and their story!
Continue to the Haus der Bürgerschaft, the city’s most modern building, serving as the Parliament House, before you reach the Schnoor district, Bremen’s oldest neighbourhood. Where once fishermen and farmers lived, nowadays a number of bohemian studios and art galleries have emerged, making it a fascinating district to spend your time in.
Last but not least, you should not miss the opportunity to visit the Kunsthalle, Bremen’s largest art galleries. Featuring excellent European art collections dating back to the 19th and 20th centuries with top masterpieces by Rubens, Rembrandt, Delacroix and Picasso, it’s not to be missed!
