The historic Hanseatic city of Bremen shows its splendid side at Advent time. Whether it’s a light certificate under the World Cultural Heritage or a medieval ambience on the water, whether skating high in the north or shopping fun with a Christmas flair – the choice of Christmas markets is diverse.
Bright lights around the World Heritage Site
Around the Town Hall and Roland (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the atmospheric Bremen Christmas Market with over 170 festively decorated stalls at the same time invites for a long stroll. It is considered one of the most beautiful in the country. The historic setting, the lovingly decorated booths and stalls, the romantic lighting – all this makes its special flair and inspires more and more visitors year after year.
The advent season brings Bremen to shine: fairy lights, candlelight and lovingly decorated stands create a special atmosphere, which inspires more and more visitors every year. Above all lies the pleasant smell of freshly roasted almonds, gingerbread and mulled wine. Directly in front of the 600-year-old town hall, which was ennobled to the UNESCO World Heritage, on the historic marketplace and in the shopping arcades, we have built for you over 160 Christmas stands – festive romantic and festive Christmas.
An illuminated circular route takes you from the Christmas market to Bremen’s lifeline, the Weser. The popular promenade along the river invites you to the advent season to the “Schlachte magic”. Experience the historical, wintry and maritime market.
Organ concerts and nativity play, fairytale theater performances and Christmas exhibitions: The Bremen cultural institutions offer a varied program of festive events for young and old at Christmas time.
