Bremen sports offers you a good blend of spectator and participant sports. You can watch a horse race or football match from the sidelines. Or get pumped up and sweaty as you cycle around town or get in a round of golf.
Football / Soccer
The local soccer team is the SV Werder Bremen. This Bremen sports club has been wildly successful throughout its long history. Formed in 1899, Werder Bremen has had a tumultuous history filled with early triumphs, including a win at their first-ever game. They fell on hard times following the Second World War but came back strong in the 1980s.
These days, they still enjoy much success at their local arena, the Weserstadion (Franz-Böhmert-Straße 7).
Avid golfers will be pleased at Bremen’s different golfing venues. Those looking to get in 18 holes can head to Golf-Club Oberneuland (Heinrich-Baden-Weg 25), which is conveniently only ten minutes from Bremen’s town center.
The Golfregion Nordwest (Hauptstraße 1) is known for its beautiful grounds (and offers special deals to tourists). The Bremen GolfRange (Ludwig-Roselius-Allee 2) offers nine holes of golf and training classes for novices.
This Bremen sport is popular with residents and travelers. With hundreds of kilometers of bike trails, cycling is a great way to experience this region and the old city. You can choose from four popular routes for your cycling adventure.
The Bremen Cycleway leads you through the historical center of town. The Weser Cycleway follows the river landscape. Hamburg-Bremen Long Distance Cycleway links these two towns with 150 km of trail. And the Green Belt takes you through the nearby countryside and small villages around Bremen.
If cycling wears you out, then you can try this less taxing sport: Go-karting lets you race against your friends along a 600 meter track while seated in a small speeding car. Check out the BB Go-Kart Track at Cuxhavener Straße 31.
Come and catch the excitement at the Bremen Racecourse (Ludwig-Roselius-Allee 4). This Bremen sport allows you to watch some of the country’s fastest horses compete against each other on the track. There’s even a beer garden so you can cool off after all the racing exhilaration. :-)
