Bremen's most famous sight is probably the statue of the Town Musicians of Bremen. Well-known from Grimm's Fairy Tales, donkey, dog cat and cock were eternalized as a bronze statue on Bremen's market square. Take a selfie with them, or you weren't there! Only a few steps futher, you will find two sights that are part of the UNESCO World Heritage: Bremen's town hall and the statue of Roland, the protector of the city. Do not forget to pay Bremen Cathedral a visit - it is right around the corner.
In total, there are 24 districts waiting to be explored. There is something for every taste: From the historic city centre to beautiful and relaxed parts like the "Schlachte" river promenade that leads to modern districts like "Überseestadt" (City Overseas) and "Das Viertel" (The Quarter). Especially during the evenings, the "Schnoorviertel" (String Quarter) is well worth a visit to just stroll through the narrow alleys or dine in one of the cosy restaurants. There are also lots of iconic bars and clubs to party the night away.
Various parks and green areas can be found in the city of Bremen. Locals and tourists alike go there to relax or to work out. We recommend an escape to Werder Lake in Stadtwerder during summer, to take a swim or have a barbecue with friends. If you do not mind driving a bit further, get your bike and cycle along the Weser Cycle Route leading alongside the river Weser up to the North Sea coast.
Enjoy life by the riverside, in the heart of Bremen. Historical and modern boats offer daily tours across the river Weser. Treat your taste buds to some local and international delicacies at one of the beautiful beer gardens by the river.
To locals, the pedestrian passage "Böttcherstraße" is Bremen's secret main street. You can easily recognise it from the golden relief "Der Lichtbringer" (Bringer of Light) that adorns the street's entrance gate. In Böttcherstraße, you will also find attractions like the Paula Modersohn-Becker Museum, the Ludwig Roselius Museum and the Glockenspiel House with the carillon made of Meissen porcelain.
The famous bike trail "Weser-Radweg" leads right through the city of Bremen, which is one of 15 stages of the trail. Cycle through beautiful nature and interesting cities until Cuxhaven by the North Sea. At the Best Western Hotel Achim Bremen, we have plenty of bike stands - pedal on!
The "Weserpark" shopping paradise is only 2.5 km away from the hotel. It is the perfect place to spend a relaxed rainy afternoon rummaging in the vast offer of the fashion stores, or treating yourself to some coffee and cake in one of the many cafés and restaurant. Shop until you drop! Meanwhile, leave your car for free at the huge car park directly at the shopping centre.
The impressive whale-shaped building of the Universum Museum is home to exciting and educational exhibitions about nature, humans and technology. The interactive concept encourages visitors to not only look at the exhibits, but also to touch, try and explore them. The Universum Museum is only 17 minutes by car away from the Best Western Hotel Achim Bremen.
The famous statue of the Town Musicians of Bremen is a must-see on your trip to Bremen, as is taking a picture together with the musical animals on Bremen's market square. The bronze sculputre was built by Gerhard Marcks in 1952 and is located to the west of the town hall, right next to the statue of Roland.
