  • Excellent wines, good food and friendly service. Reserve a table in one of the kegs is recommended, which is very comfortable.

  • The Town Hall impresses with its richly decorated view in the Renaissance style. It is one of the most popular photo motifs in Bremen. You can visit the famous Hall of the Council only in the context of a guided tour. Unfortunately it was always just one of the reasons existed which prevented a visit so far during all my visits to Bremen. This time it was few days to Anschutz Schaffer grinding. To schedule so with this visit in his sights by Bremen, o a previous call from the tourist information Office is mandatory.

  • I think any of the time is in Bremen to guest, or who here lives should take a lead in the Town Hall. I highly recommend. I was already to the 2.mal there, and am again excited by the beautiful and historic surroundings. From the outside, such as from the inside, very nice. It is located directly on the historic market square, in the city centre.

  • 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
  • Beautiful building in small city worth visiting with friends and picking up a souvenir
  • Wonderful and very European place. The buildings around are amazing.
  • Exquisite old building. A real eye candy!
  • A wonderful historical building, and a beautiful city.
