USEFUL INFO

Guided tours can be enjoyed in German and English at 11am, 12 noon, 3pm and 4pm on Monday to Saturday and at 11am and 12 noon on a Sunday. Tickets cost €5.50.

Bremen’s Marktplatz is home to many of the city’s most popular sights, including the famous Bremen Musicians Statue. However, the focus is mainly drawn to the beautiful town hall which has held UNESCO World Heritage status since 2004. As the only European town hall from the Middle Ages to still be standing in its original state, it is one of the most striking buildings in all of Germany.

Beneath the structure lies one of the country’s oldest wine cellars. Due to the pattern engraved on the walls, the wine stored here is known as ‘rose wine’. Some of which has been kept under the Town Hall since 1634 and is the oldest cask in Germany.

In front of the town hall, you will find the Roland Statue, which is also part of the Heritage Site. Featuring a knight with a drawn sword, Roland Statues were built during the Middle Ages to signify the freedom and city rights of a town. These can be seen all over Europe, but Bremen’s is said to be one of the first and most reverent examples.
