The stone statue of Roland watches over the liberties of this Hanseatic city, while on the Schlachte, Bremen's riverside promenade, business continues to boom. If it's your first time in Bremen, be sure to get a feel for the Middle Ages by visiting the historic little streets of the Schnoor quarter - don't be fooled, though; today, this "City of Science" is home to a vibrant and international cultural scene. Interactive attractions like Universum Science Center and the German Aerospace Center bring scientific phenomena to life and leave you wanting to know more! Green-fingered? Then enjoy "Botanika" nature discovery park in the Rhododendron-Park, while the Weser is ideal for a relaxed boat ride: So the choice is yours!
If you fancy exploring a little further afield in the state of Bremen, try Bremerhaven with its Institute of Marine Research or the "Teufelsmoor" bog and moorland, where you'll find an artists' colony. But remember, the traditional architecture of the Weser Renaissance is virtually on the Hostel's doorstep. And if you stroke the donkey's leg(!), the fairy-tale "Town Musicians of Bremen" are sure to bring you good luck.
Bremen stirs up feelings. Bremen makes you want to know more. But see for yourself.
By the way: Bremen Youth Hostel's guests' boat "Die Weser" is right in front of Bremen Youth Hostel at pontoon 8. With 30 bunks, this replica of the historical Weser paddle steamer rounds off our range of accommodation
