Spend the night on the boat

Have you always wanted to spend the night on a boat? Our cosy paddle steamer, "Die Weser", lies at anchor on the Weser in the heart of Bremen, at pontoon 8 just in front of the Youth Hostel. The maritime atmosphere on board this paddle steamer replica, which is made entirely out of wood, makes for a truly special experience. What's more, you'll be sleeping just a paddle stroke away from Bremen's well-known promenade, the Schlachte, and Bremen city centre. The perfect base for those wishing to discover this Hanseatic city!

The boat can be found at pontoon 8, on the Weser riverside directly in front of Bremen Youth Hostel and just a stone's throw from the city centre.

The replica of the paddle steamer, "Die Weser", has 30 beds: There is room for a total of 26 group members in two separate areas (12 / 14 spaces) as well as four group leaders in two twin cabins (WC). The beds are bunks. For each area (group leaders, amidships and stern) there are WCs, washing facilities and showers. A small kitchen / pantry with microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator are also on board.
There are tables and seating for 30 people towards the stern.
Seating on the upper deck provides a lovely view across the Weser.
The Weser paddle steamer replica, which was constructed entirely out of wood, was built by Bremer Bootsbau Vegesack gGmbH (BBV) ( http://www.bremer-bootsbau-vegesack.de/ ).
The boat's idyllic location on the Weser and sunny terrace make it a great place to relax. On dry land, the neighbouring Bremen Youth Hostel is ideal for meetings, with modern facilities and a professional conference service. Ask about our all-in-one packages.
