Situated on the leafy Stadtwerder peninsula, Der Kuhhirte dishes up hearty home-cooked fare and north German staples. Its beer garden also makes a great spot for relaxing on summer days.
Bremen's Kuhhirte is a traditional and popular restaurant offering culinary specialities from Bremen and home cooking from the local region. Located just 2.5km from the market square, the Kuhhirte's grounds and their old trees were first mentioned in Bremen's archives in 1662 and lie within the allotments on an islet in the river Weser. The menu features a varied selection of German cuisine, including typical Bremen dishes such as knipp (oatmeal with meat), labskaus (beef, fish and potato stew) and curly kale (seasonal). There are also delicious fish dishes, roulades, schnitzel and a number of vegetarian options.
During the summer months our large beer garden with a stage for live music events offers the ideal place to enjoy a freshly pulled beer with friends and family. Our sun terrace is a popular place to relax for cyclists, walkers and day trippers. A wide range of events are held here throughout the year, both indoors and out, such as Walpurgis Night, the Festival of Lights and a beer festival.
