Bremen's town hall with its magnificent facade is the focal point of the market square, which is itself the beating heart of this historical city. Many are surprised to discover that the town hall's splendour extends right to its very foundations. Deep below the bustling city streets, within the vaulted cellars of this UNESCO World Heritage site, lies the Bremen Ratskeller – famed for its fine wines and home to the world's largest collection of German wines. The cellar is over 600 years old and charms guests with its quaint setting and the enticing aroma of wooden barrels.
Travel back in time on the guided tour and find out how the wine made its way to Bremen, what makes the Ratskeller so special and why poets, composers and even Kaiser Wilhelm II thought so highly of it. During the tour you enjoy a small glass of wine and listen to more anecdotes from your guide.
Why not round off your tour with a meal in the Ratskeller restaurant? Or perhaps you'd like to buy a bottle of wine or two, so you can take a little Ratskeller atmosphere home with you.
