Bremen Town Musicians

The Bremen Town Musicians are probably the best-known landmark of the Hanseatic city. A bronze statue by Gerhard Marcks has commemorated the popular fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm in the heart of Bremen since 1953. According to the story, the donkey, dog, cat and rooster once set off for the city on the Weser to find a better life here.

UNESCO World Heritage Site (Town Hall and Roalnd)

Bremen's pride and joy is the ensemble of the Town Hall and Roland, which has been on UNESCO's World Heritage List since 2014. The duo presents itself beautifully on the north-east side of Bremen's market square and stands for democracy and freedom in a unique way. The town hall has been the seat of local self-government and the state government since it was built in 1405, while the Roland, erected in 1404, has always symbolized the rights and privileges of the Hanseatic city. Well worth a visit! Roland is happy to hold still for a photo with you and the town hall is not just an absolute eye-catcher from the outside. The doors of the magnificent building are also open to you on interesting guided tours or during a visit to the unique Ratskeller.

Ratskeller Bremen

The "delicious foundation of the town hall" - Bremen's Ratskeller is not nicknamed this for nothing. The vaults below the Liebfrauenkirchhof and the Domshof not only house one of Bremen's most traditional restaurants, but also the world's largest selection of exclusively German wines. As part of Bremen's town hall, the Ratskeller is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and impresses with its more than 600 years of history.

Bremen even has its own word for the cultivated enjoyment of coffee: kaffeesieren. Enjoy the brown bean with us
