  • Wow, what a beautiful building!!! I walk around the building at night, but even in the dark it was impressive! I had never been to Bremen before and was true my impressed by the quality and scale of the architecture in the center of the city. It was well lit and very interesting even at night. Impressively preserved city center and should be a must see if you are in the Bremen area!
  • This historical town hall is such a good sight. At the time of visit, at night, lights were projected to one side of the building and this light was animated. It was great to watch and many stood by to take videos in amazement. An amazing experience it waa
  • Highly recommend the tour of the inside. Our English guide (I forget his name but remember that his mother is Turkish) was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was a great way to learn the history of Bremen!
  • The beautiful Bremen City Hall is the seat of the President of the Senate and Mayor of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. It is one of the most important examples of Brick Gothic and Weser Renaissance architecture in Europe. Since 1973, it has been a protected historical building. In July 2004, along with the Bremen Roland statue, the building was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. A must've seen in Bremen!
  • This Gothic, UNESCO world heritage site was amazingly restored to its prewar glory. You can enjoy it and the surrounding walking area. And, you can get a tour of the interior -- definitely worth the effort. This is the history-rich part of town.
