Town Hall and Roland statue - World Cultural Heritage of Bremen

Guided tour for groups

Description

Yes, Bremen's town hall is beautiful. It's probably the city's most photographed landmark after the Bremen Town Musicians statue. But what in particular made UNESCO declare it a World Cultural Heritage site together with the Roland statue in 2004? There is no higher accolade for a building, and puts the ensemble on Bremen's market square alongside the Pyramids of Giza and the Acropolis. Bremen town hall with its Weser Renaissance façade is shrouded in enthralling myths and legends and is still a place where old-established traditions are upheld. The Upper Hall and Banqueting Hall serve as venues for state receptions, the oldest fraternal formal dinner in the world, music events, and much more besides. The proud, stone Roland statue stands as an emblem of Hanseatic Bremen's liberty and independence. Learn how to interpret the symbols and his line of vision. After talking you through the Roland statue, your expert tour guide takes you around the entire building, including the Upper Hall and Banqueting Hall, and you can take a glimpse inside the Golden Chamber – the art nouveau masterpiece by Heinrich Vogeler.
