A few advices to visit the city: you can easily visit the City of Bremen in 3 days (flights included): there isnt' much to visit apart from the city center. It's an industrial city with a nice ancient city center. We stayed at the Radisson Blue which is just 100 mt from the town square. Everything turns around the townsquare.... More

Bremen was a last-minute addition to our road trip across the north of Germany. After having really enjoyed Hannover and Hamburg, we arrived in Bremen with low expectations. We were pleasantly surprised! At the heart of Bremen's charm is its Altstadt. It is extremely charming! Beautiful squares littered with little fountains and sculptures, the town hall, the cathedral - it... More

I was switching around my itinerary quite a bit before deciding on Bremen as one of the towns I would visit during my tour through northern Germany. I am glad I added it last minute, because it is absolutely charming. The old town area is easily accessible from the train station and elsewhere. You barely need a map, just follow... More

Really there is not much to prepare for at tour of Bremen. The city is well planned and layer out. Just head downtown and park your car and stroll around. The layout of the city makes it so that everything is within walking distance, and almost all interesting things are for free in closeness to each other.

I visited Bremen as a day trip, and I absolutely loved it. The Altstadt is definitely one of the highlights, with its beautiful old buildings and many cafés in the square. I'd recommend stopping for lunch or a coffee to fully appreciate the beauty of the architecture, and the historical atmosphere.

Great place for a stroll with many very narrow, presumably medieval streets. Also a large selection of restaurants, many of which appear to be very traditional based upon the garb of their greeters. There are also many interesting shops some of whose products are not made in China. Well worth the visit for a few hrs in Bremen.
