Bremen Travel Guide, Germany

Most people know Bremen only as a setting for the Grimm Brothers fairy-tale, the Bremen Town Musicians, but there is much more than that to the city. Bremen, together with Bremerhaven forms the state of Bremen in Northern Germany. Bremen has a rich history that goes back to the first millennium AD, and in the Middle Ages it was part of the all-powerful Hanseatic League. Bremen is a compact and extremely charming city, with a distinctive architecture and almost magical atmosphere. Bremen has everything from medieval streets or Art Nouveau buildings to an alternative neighbourhood and modern science centre. This Bremen Travel Guide will offer you some useful information about this fascinating city.
