Bremen restaurants and their cuisine offer visitors an exciting and delicious adventure. You’ll find traditional German food with some international, artistic twists.
Kohn und Pinkel
This Bremen meal consists of typical German sausage and red cabbage.
With its location in the north of Germany, it’s not too surprising that this Scandinavian fish, the white Matjes herring, is so popular in Bremen.
Hannoversches Blindhuhn is a soup that’s made up of potatoes, bacon, vegetables and fruit. Try it!
L’Orchidée im Ratskeller (Am Markt)
Generally regarded as the best restaurant in town, L’Orchidée specializes in French cuisine but with a German twist. Some tasty specialties you may find on the menu include smoked fish or pigeon breast.
Be sure to make a reservation in advance. With such a reputation for delicious meals, you won’t want to leave disappointed!
Ratskeller (Am Markt)
Just around the corner from L’Orchidée is this German gem, the Ratskeller. This Bremen restaurant won’t deplete your euros quite as quickly either! With its Bremen-style chicken or saffron-flavored fish soup, your taste buds will be almost as happy.
And if you want to sample some German wines, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better place. There is one of the longest lists of German vineyards here, including some that are aged over 200 years!
à point (Am Markt 13)
If you want some history to go with your food, then check out à point. This Bremen restaurant is housed in a 500 year-old vaulted cellar. The food is typical Hanseatic cuisine, making this an authentic, historic place to sample some local food.
Theater Ship – Bühne 3 (Tiefer 104/Landing Stage 4)
This Bremen restaurant is one of the few in the city that floats. You’ll find this interesting place just along the Schlachte Embankment off of one of the piers. This boat-cum-eatery is a great location for a nice dinner or a cocktail.
Alte Gilde (Ansgaritorstraße 24)
The Alte Gilde has a prime spot just between the town center and the Schlachte Embankment. Housed within an architectural gem of a building, complete with gargoyles, you’ll find the restaurant down in the vaulted cellar. Here you can sample the best of German cuisine, including teak Provençale and calf liver.
