Groups: Historical Bremen
Let a professional show you around the Hanseatic city's most charming and important attractions: a guided walk usually lasts for two hours. Our guides offer tours on a range of different themes to suit your individual requirements and schedules. Art, architecture, local history – you decide the focal point of the tour. The guides can collect you either at your hotel or at the train station, it's up to you. These guided tours must be booked in advance online via this website.
The 600-year-old town hall and Roland statue (a joint UNESCO World Heritage site), the architecturally stunning Böttcherstrasse, the Schnoor quarter with its delightful gabled houses – all of these are Bremen classics. Our guided tours offer history and fascinating facts about the past that you won't find in any travel guide. That's a promise.
Time to stop off for lunch. Try the attractive Ständige Vertretung, a quaint restaurant on Böttcherstrasse. The walls here are plastered with photos covering 50 years of German history, and also a little bit of Bremen's.
Batteries fully charged, catch the tram (line 4) just a few metres from the market square for the ten-minute ride to the Focke Museum. This impressive collection of the State Museum of Art and Cultural History brings the history of Bremen to life. Exhibits include the original head of the Roland statue (to book guided group tours call +49 (0)421 699 600 61).
Take the no. 4 tram back to the city centre and within a few minutes you will find yourself on the Schlachte Embankment along the Weser river. Here, on the site of Bremen's old port, there are a number of restaurants where you can enjoy an al fresco aperitif in summer.
If you would like to sample some hearty traditional fare, the BTZ has a number of packages that offer an introduction to the typical Bremen cuisine. The Concordenhaus in the Schnoor quarter, for example, serves a fantastic Hanseatic buffet, while Bremen's Ratskeller gives you the opportunity to explore the city's culinary traditions over a six-course dinner. Situated beneath the town hall, it has a collection of German wines that is unparalleled in its size – as well as a selection of delicious dishes. If you prefer to round off the evening in your own particular way, you will find details of other restaurants in the city on our website.
When planning your visit, be aware that many museums and other attractions close for one day during the week (usually Monday).
