Today the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen is a major business metropolis and university city. In the historic town center, located on an island in the Weser, the famous Schnoorviertel district awaits with its enchanting half-timbered houses. Spacious parks and green spaces offer plenty of room for sports and recreation. A river steamer excursion on the Weser or a bicycle tour of the city’s scenic surroundings are just two of the many ways of experiencing the beauty of Bremen.
Our young course participants are accommodated in Lidice Haus, situated in idyllic parklands on a peninsula. The center’s excellent facilities include spacious grounds, which we use for outdoor sports activities. A swimming lake is just 10 minutes away. Other activities available nearby include rowing and tennis. A direct ferry provides a convenient link to Bremen’s most lively areas, with plenty of cafés and shops as well as the city’s arts and museum district.
A transfer will be offered between Hamburg airport (HAM) or Bremen airport (BRE) and Bremen from 7 am to 6 pm on the official day of arrival and departure (waits may occur).
On the arrival day our staff will meet the teenagers at the exit from the transit area in the arrivals hall of the airport.
They will be carrying a Goethe-Institut sign and also have an official letter as identification. For organizational reasons we regret that we are unable to provide you with the name of this member of our staff earlier than 3 days in advance of the course.
