Bremen Nightlife, Germany

Although not much larger than a town in the opinion of many, Bremen holds more secrets and wonders than can fit into an entire metropolis. Bremen is the smallest of the German states, and arguably the most fascinating as well. It’s no wonder that the Brothers Grimm have chosen this city as the setting for their story, the Bremen Town Musicians. Bremen can best be described as a gingerbread town, full of exquisite buildings crowding together along narrow paved streets and charming plazas. But don’t be fooled by the outward innocence of the city. Behind the beautifully decorated walls hides a vibrant nightlife that will satisfy even the most avid reveler. This Bremen Nightlife Guide will help you discover the best places to eat, drink and party in this exciting city.

Bremen Nightlife - Eating Out

Local dishes tend to be hearty and filling, and many of them are based either on cabbage or on seafood. You can find many good restaurants in Viertel district and on Bottgerstrasse. The Slachte, the picturesque street along the Weser River is chock full of restaurants and bistros serving delicious local specialties. Although the usual fast food chains are ever-present, just like in Hamburg or Berlin, but there are lots of more interesting dining choices that you can try out. Alte Gilde, not far from the Rathaus, serves many traditional dishes and a few international ones in an interesting medieval décor. Beck’s Bistro, also in the Altstadt, doesn’t have many traditional foods on the menu, but instead it specializes in healthy cuisine. Café Engel serves light dishes only, but it has a wide selection of delicious deserts. Katzen Café has a huge number of coffee specialties and sweets, and an equally impressive menu of various dishes. For some genuine German food, this Bremen Travel Guide recommends that you try Schroters, a small restaurant that serves local and regional specialties, as well as several delicious international dishes.

Bremen Nightlife - Bars and clubs

Bremen’s signature beer is Beck’s, but there are several equally delicious lesser known ocal brews that can be found in the pubs and wine cellars in the Viertel or along the Slachte. Ratskeller is one of the oldest and most popular wine cellars in the city, where you can find virtually hundreds of types of beer, wine and other beverages. If you feel like dancing, you should probably check out Aladin, located in the city center, a favourite among locals and visitors alike. For some more low-key entertainment, spend a few hours sipping cocktails at Sinatra’s, a club with great ambience and a quiet crowd.
