We arrived in Bremen in early afternoon and went to city center by public transport, the old city center really looks nice. It was a little bit inconvient that many building reconstruction took place, but anyway everything we saw was nice.

Inside the Cathedral is a baptismal Font dating from 1220, and in the garden outside is a statue of a pilgrim. Apparently pilgrims stopped here on the way to Santiago.
