The City Municipality of Bremen is a commercial and industrial city, while Bremerhaven is a medium-sized town known for its harbour, which has among the largest passenger traffic in Germany.  

 

What to see & do

Universum Science Centre - Bremen’s Universum Science Centre is an interactive science museum, with almost 250 interesting exhibits. The museum covers over 4,000 square metres of area near the University of Bremen, with exhibits relating to mankind, earth, and the cosmos. The unique building is in the shape similar to a whale’s head peeking above water (or in the case of the museum, off the ground) or a mussel, made up of 40,000 stainless steel scales. In 2007, a 5,000 square metre outdoor area called EntdeckerPark and a new building called SchauBox were introduced. EntdeckerPark also features hands-on exhibits and the 27-metre high tower Turm der Lüfte.

 

Bremen Cathedral – St. Petri Dom zu Bremen is a church dedicated to St. Peter, located at the market square in the city centre.

 

Paula Modersohn-Becker Museum – Bremen hosts the first museum in the world that is dedicated to a female artist. Paula Modersohn-Becker was a German painter and one of the most significant early Expressionists.  She is also known to be the first female painter to make female nude paintings.

 

German Shipping Museum – The German Shipping Museum in Bremerhaven is tasked with collecting, recording, researching, and presenting documents and artefacts relating to the maritime

history of Germany. It was built in 1971 to replace Berlin’s Museum of Marine Science, which was destroyed in the World War II. The museum consists of a main museum building and several museum ships in the Old Harbour of Bremerhaven.  

 

Bremerhaven Radar Tower – Constructed between 1962 and 1965, the 106-metre high reinforced concrete tower in Bremerhaven is a transmitting tower with several transmitting plants for maritime radio purposes. The tower also features a viewing platform at 60 metres that is open for public access.

 

How to get around within Bremen

Being a long and narrow city, Bremen is easily navigated by foot, especially for the parts frequented by tourists. It is also the most bike-friendly city in Germany, much so that even the former mayor rode a bike to his office everyday despite the wishes of his bodyguards. There are bikes for hire at the railway station and at the bike shops found in some parts of the city. Taxis frequently roam Bremen in search of passengers, so you can simply hail one off the street or at the taxi stands. Transportation is not as easy in Bremerhaven, although it is served by three active passenger rail stations: Bremerhaven Haputbahnhoff, Bremerhaven-Lehe, and Bremerhaven-Wulsdorf. 

 

How to get there

Airports from the larger German cities offer flights to Bremen Airport, the primary civilian airport in Bremen. The airport is located southwest of the city. Ryanair and Lufthansa offer regular flights to Bremen Airport. Bremen is also connected to the rest of Germany via railway and bus services. Bremerhaven also has its own smaller airport, Bermerhaven Airport. It is 4.7 kilometers away from the centre and, served by OFD Ostfriesischer-Flug-Dienst, receives flights from Heligoland Airport from the German Island of Düne.
