Bremen On a Budget
Bremen Bremen, Germany
Located in northern Germany, Bremen stretches along the River Weser. It has a population of over half a million and was once a member of the medieval Hanseatic League. It is a long and narrow city that runs along both sides of the river. It's about ten kilometers long, but is rarely more than two kilometers wide. With sites such as the Cathedral of St. Peter and Rathaus (the town hall), Bremen has a very historical atmosphere. The city itself dates back 1200 years. The sights are concentrated around the city's old town, Altmarkt and the main square is home to the Roland statue among other old and famous architectural gems. While visiting Bremen, try some of the city's famous candy, Kluten, and wash it down with some Beck's beer, which is also local to Bremen.

Bremen has a moderate oceanic climate because it is not far from the North Sea. There are occasional heat waves in the summer, or long periods of cold weather in the winter. In general the temperatures remain relatively mild though. Winters can be cloudy and gloomy and sunshine is rare. Rain falls evenly throughout the year but snowfall varies significantly from year to year. June, July and August are the city's warmest months and the coldest time is between December and February.
Sites around town that are of interest include the Cathedral of Saint Peter, Roland, a statue in the main square, Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten, and the lovely park of Am Wall. Also make sure you wander through Schnoor which is an area with many twisted streets that are lined with quaint shops. Also take a stroll down the art nouveau street, Bottcherstrasse. In addition to its fascinating character, the street has many shops and museums you can wander through.
Neighborhoods in downtown Bremen include Viertel, Neustadt, Findorff, and Schwachhausen. In Bremen-Nord the neighborhoods include Vegesack, St. Magnus, and Schonebeck.

Many people simply enjoy walking around town and taking in the atmosphere. There are also a handful of interesting activities you can enjoy. If you like football, try to catch a match of Werder Bremen. You can also visit Universum Bremen where there's a hands on science center.
