  • Citadel well taken care of and very beautiful, well worth a visit even if fast. Is very cute turn aimlessly inside the alleys

  • Town Hall-part ensemble market square (UNESCO). It can be, walking around, seen from outside: the façade is full of symbols and meanings. Tour ticket is bought at the information centre for tourists on the other side of the square. The tour lasts 45 minutes (German and English) and this visit just 2 huge rooms, but no! This testimony is a free city of the Hanseatic League, his wealth and greatness. Don't miss out-in every way a great restaurant!

  • Beautiful town hall in the centre of Bremen. Currently having it's roof replaced so covered in scaffolding, but it's still open for tours which can be booked at the tourist information office on the other side of the square. The type cost about €5 and took about an hour showing us the main rooms of the hall. Worth a look if you have chance
