Founded more than 1,200 years ago, the northwest German town of Bremen offers hotel guests a unique mix of European history and modern German innovation.
Step back in time with a stroll through Marktplatz, a bustling medieval town square. Here you can take in the World Heritage Site of Rathaus, Bremen’s still-functioning town hall, or get a bird’s-eye view of the city from the top of the 300-foot-tall south tower of the St. Petri Dom, the Gothic cathedral of St. Peter.
Before heading back to your Bremen accommodations, be sure to stop in at the Ratskeller. This famous town-hall restaurant has been serving traditional north German food and wine for over 600 years. Indulge in a bottle of Rhine wine and a plate of Bremen-style chicken ragout, or order corned-beef hash from the less expensive bistro.
For a look at the innovation of modern Bremen, our hotel’s guests can fast forward five centuries with an aerospace tour at EADS Astrium, where visitors learn how astronauts eat, sleep and shower in zero gravity. Top off your day with a look at how Germans use modern technology to brew the beer that’s made this country famous for centuries with a tasting tour at the Beck’s Brewery.
