Bremen for groups
Mercedes off-road training courses or culinary city tours – perfect for groups
Bremen is an ideal destination for groups who enjoy spending time together and would like to keep active – or at least break into a sweat through too much excitement!
Watching Werder Bremen play at home is always a thrilling occasion, and when there is no play, football fans can take a tour of the stadium. An exciting alternative is a major sporting spectacle such as the Bremen six-day cycle race, the largest indoor cycling event in Europe.
Off the bus and on your bike? That's a breeze in the cycling city of Bremen. Our eight-kilometre guided cycling tour takes you to a number of sights such as the historical market square, the Schlachte Embankment and the colourful Ostertor quarter. If you prefer to do your sightseeing on foot, you can opt for the daily guided walk.
Fancy something a little more rugged? 'The Rock', Bremen's third highest hill, is also the name of an off-road adventure. On this driver training course, participants have to overcome obstacles and prove that they can handle a staggering 70 per cent gradient from behind the wheel of a Mercedes GLK.
And if you need a rest after so much action, the many wellness retreats in the city – such as the 'Oase', Park Hotel Bremen, the WellX world of relaxation and the Badehaus – help to rejuvenate the mind, body and senses.
Our Gruppenspass (Group Fun) brochure contains lots of ideas and inspiration for food-themed experiences in Bremen. Because, after all, the culinary traditions of the local Bremen people are fascinating in their own right.
- On the bound by tradition package you learn all about the Schaffermahl banquet and the ice wager, both long-established customs in Bremen. You will see the Upper Hall of the town hall, where many a lavish banquet has been hosted, and later head down to the Ratskeller to sample typical Bremen dishes as part of a six-course meal.
- On the 'Parcours through Bremen' tour, you are served specialities such as knipp (oatmeal with meat), labskaus (herring with corned beef) and schneemustorte ('snow mousse gateau'). Sporting competitions in prawn shelling and casting (fishing), the Beck's relay race and the Kaffeemühlenspiel (coffee mill game) provide culinary experiences of a different kind. For fans of Beck's beer, a tour of the brewery beside the Weser is an absolute must.
- At the Münchhausen roasting house, lovers of caffeinated beverages can learn all about the history of coffee roasting in Bremen. You can watch the master coffee roaster at work and sample coffee specialities in a small, traditional roasting house. Coffee seminars at Lloyd Caffee trace the history of Café HAG and the 'coffee baron' Ludwig Roselius.
