The city’s delightful Christmas market is held on the historical market square, surrounded by the UNESCO World Heritage town hall, the cathedral, the Church of Our Lady and the Schütting guildhall. Glittering illuminations, the glow of candlelight and the sea of decorated stalls create a special atmosphere that enchants more and more visitors every year. The air is full of delicious aromas – from freshly roasted almonds to gingerbread and glühwein. The Schlachte promenade along the Weser river also joins in the seasonal fun, when markets of Christmas past are brought to life at the Schlachte Magic. Traders in medieval attire offer historical wares and traditional food and drink can be sampled at a wide choice of stands. The marquees and booths beside the river are beautifully decorated with winter themes while a range of events on board the ships cater for maritime entertainment.
Bremen itself is a pulsating city of many faces. Its history, tradition, high-tech achievements, scientific feats and innovation in space research unite this multifaceted city in an exciting ground-breaking experience.
