Discover Bremen

Whether in a break, after a successful business meeting or in the evening together with friends. From our centrally located apartments and rooms it is only a stone’s throw to your very personal Bremen experience.

Bremen owes its history as a Hanseatic city not only to its historical centre, which you should definitely explore on foot, but also to its very own mentality. Bremen is a cosmopolitan city where diversity and respect go hand in hand. The city and its inhabitants are especially appreciated by guests for their unpretentious and stress-free way of dealing with things. The best way to experience this is by yourself!

We have put our Bremen together for you. We hope you enjoy reading it!
