Bremen: trade, craft, hi-tech

Over the centuries, shipping and overseas trade have shaped the Hanseatic city on the river Weser. Even today you can still feel and see Bremen's proud tradition. Be it during a walk along the river, along stately buildings of the late 19th century or in the medieval Schnoorviertel. After years of structural change, Bremen is now an important location for the automotive, shipbuilding, steel, electronics and food industries. The modern university and the innovative practice-oriented cooperation between business, science and the city attract many future-oriented young people to the Technology Park on the Weser. In 2005, Bremen was the first German city to bear the title "City of Science".


Bremen can boast a UNESCO world heritage site: the Town Hall and the Roland statue standing in front of it on the market square. The magnificent Town Hall is a testimony to the self-confidence of the Hanseatic city and its citizens. The Roland, being eleven meters high, is the biggest preserved statue of the Middle Ages in Germany. It depicts a knight with the imperial coat of arms on his shield, a reminder of the time when Bremen first became a free imperial city. At the Town Hall, there is also a monument to the Bremen Town Musicians from the fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, who made Bremen world-famous. The Tanztheater Bremen, the Bremer Shakespeare Company, the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie and the Theater Bremen, which had been voted "Opera House of the Year" in 2007, enjoy an excellent reputation. Every year in September, the Bremen Music Festival attracts an international audience of lovers of old and new music. Bremen's museum landscape also leaves little to be desired. Its spectrum ranges from art and design to antiquity, from the history of shipbuilding to astronomy. The Überseemuseum is one of the most important ethnological museums in Europe. The Gothic churches in Bremen's old town are definitely worth seeing. St. Peter's Cathedral, the oldest church building in the city, is famous for the mummies that were found in the eastern crypt, the "lead cellar".


There are no limits to the leisure activities in the port city: Bremen's spacious parks and green spaces offer plenty of space for sports and recreation. On a steamboat trip on the Weser, at horse races, at the football matches of the first division football club Werder Bremen or on bicycle tours in the charming surrounding area, Bremen shows itself from its most beautiful sides. Thanks to the city's long overseas trade tradition, you can also find many rare tea and coffee specialties as well as a world-famous beer. A lively gastronomic scene is currently flourishing in the old town, Schlachte on the banks of the Weser.

I used to find learning German really difficult and I tried lots of different things. But on the language course at the Goethe-Institut, I suddenly started making rapid progress.
