We spent a few days in Bremen for Jess’ birthday last year. Bremen is an absolutely beautiful old city that is full of wealth and embellishment – every building seems to have elaborate brickwork, sculptures and gold foil. It’s a very architecturally pretty little town, and also has a Dutch quarter with tiny laneways and tightly packed Dutch houses, called The Schnoor. The animals from a Brothers Grimm fairytale are popular here – apparently one of the tales was set in old Bremen. Becks Beer is also brewed in Bremen, so we made sure we had a few of those!
Bremen is about a four hour bus ride from Berlin, so not that far away if you are staying in Berlin, which we were. It’s good for a day, but I don’t think there is much else going on Bremen to warrant more than that! Hope you enjoy the photos.
