Top Ten Bremen Attractions And Essential Experiences

Bremen attractions and experiences are delightful and sure to please even the most discerning traveler. My below top ten list is Bremen in a nutshell.

1. Scoping Out The Heroes And Musicians Of Bremen Town

These Bremen attractions are at the literal and figurative heart of the city. As you make your way to the Marktplatz, you can’t miss the ten-meter high Roland, protector and hero of Bremen. And the much beloved Bremen Town Musicians (Bremer Stadtmusikanten) are here as well.

If you have a special wish, you can rub the donkey’s hooves to make it come true. ;-)

2. Visiting The UNESCO Heritage Site At The Town Hall

This beautiful building, along with the aforementioned statues, are so historically important that UNESCO has listed them as a World Heritage Site. This is also one of the most picturesque places in town.

3. Channeling The Heavens At A Cathedral Organ Performance

With five organs, St Peter’s Cathedral is well-known for its chamber music. Visit this gorgeous Gothic Cathedral to the heavenly tunes of organ playing.

4. Checking Out The Local Theater At Theatrium

This family-friendly Bremen attraction is a great place to get in the local culture. Anything from the classics to Hollywood could be on the menu.

5. Experiencing The Miracle Of Nature At Botanika

This nature park/museum features an entertaining exhibit on plant life with interactive and multimedia displays. Don’t miss the recreated Asian landscapes in its greenhouses.

6. Bicycling Along A River Promenade

This Bremen attraction brings thousands of cyclists to town each year. Whether you just want to enjoy the local scenery, or complete in the Six-Day Cycling Races, Bremen is a great bet.

7. Living And Eating It Up At The L’Orchidée im Ratskeller

Treat yourself to a fantastic meal at Bremen’s best-known and best-loved fancy restaurant. Reservations are a must.
