About Bremen

A major cultural hub in Northern Germany, the Hanseatic city of Bremen is a great place for a weekend away. The city has played a significant role in European history since the time of Charlemagne, when the people of Bremen were banned from worshipping the Saxon gods. The best way to explore the city is on foot, walking along the streets taking in the wealth of architectural beauty as well as its situation on the River Wiese. The best places to stay in Bremen range from historic houses to ultra-modern hotels, and most of our recommendations are very centrally located so ideal for exploring the town's highlights.
