BREMEN BREAKS

Bremen… a Hanseatic metropolitan city in northwestern Germany is another great travel destination. Its official German name is Stadtgemeinde Bremen. A port city, positioned along the river Weser, about 50 kilometers south from its outflow into the North Sea, Bremen is one of two towns in the state of Bremen, the other being Bremerhaven; and as of June 2005, it has a total population of 545,983.

Bremen, once a merchant’s town in the 12th century, became a part of the American occupation zone after World War II. This happened after the United States of America wanted to have one port town within their area of responsibility. Although this arrangement prevented the inclusion of Bremen into the new Land of Lower Saxony, it nevertheless secured the city’s independence as a Federal State in its own right in the new West German federation.

Bremen’s many sights could be seen in the Altstadt or the Old Town so if one wants to have a feel of what the real Bremen is like, one shouldn’t miss paying the place a visit. The Old Town is an oval area bordered by the Weser River on the southwest and the Wallgraben, the former moats of the medieval city walls, on the northeast. Records show that the oldest part of the Old Town is the southeast half, which begins with the Marktplatz, also referred to as the Market square, and ends at the Schnoor district.

Sightseeing at the Market square is a must for any tourist. There you will see the Town Hall, which was erected between 1405 and 1410 in Gothic style. Its façade, however, was only built two centuries later now in Renaissance style. Today, it is home to a restaurant in original decor with gigantic wine barrels with wine list featuring more than 600 German wines. The restaurant also serves as the storage place for the twelve oldest wines in the world, which are saved in their original barrels in the Apostel chamber.

The other interesting buildings inside the Market square include the Schütting, a 16th-century Flemish-inspired guild hall, and the Stadtwaage, the old weighing house constructed in 1588, with an ornate Renaissance front. There is also the majestic Cathedral St. Petri to the east of the Market square. It holds sculptures of Moses and David, Peter and Paul and Charlemagne. The Liebfrauenkirche or the Our Lady’s Church, on the other hand, serves as the oldest church of Bremen. Worthy of note also is the Schnoor, a small, well-preserved area of crooked lanes and fishing houses from the 15th and 16th centuries, which is now home to cafés, artisan shops and art galleries.

For those who want to experience the town’s modern offerings, one could visit the Universum Science Center, a modern science museum botanika. Another current tourist attraction is the Kunsthalle Bremen, an art museum housing contemporary paintings from the 19th and 20th century, where the citizens of Bremen have custody over. Lastly, there is the Neues Museum Weserburg, an art museum with modern paintings as well as sculptures.

The city is ideal not only for tours and vacationing; it is also perfect for business investments. History walks for foreigners; a city that is perfect for budding entrepreneurs because several high-tech industries have slowly been establishing their offices in Bremen. In fact, Bremen is where the second biggest Airbus plant in Germany is located. There is also a Mercedes-Benz factory in Bremen. Furthermore, the popular Beck’s beer is brewed in Bremen and many of the food-producing companies the world is familiar with such as Kellogg’s, Kraft Jacobs Suchard, Melitta and Vitakraft are located in Bremen.

Now, what more could you ask for from a holiday getaway? Bremen is historic and perfect for a romantic escapade or a family sojourn. If you are looking for a place where you can combine business with pleasure, Bremen opens its door for you.  Come on in!
