Kohlfahrten - Cabbage Tours
We people from Bremen are strange - In the deepest winter we go outside and walk for hours over the dikes. No matter what the wheather is like - the worse the better. We walk, talk, drink, laugh, play funny games and in the end come to some restaurants where the cabbage party starts....
A good way to travel around in Bremen is the Tram. You find many many Trainstations here and you can visit the whole town.
At the stations you find the schedules. I think they start every 5-10 Minutes.
Summer Must: "Schlachte"
If you are in Bremen and the weather is rather nice, you an be sure, that you will find most of the Bremen citizen at the Schlachte, having a beer...
It is a really nice surrounding there and in the evening you can see how the sun goes down over the river "Weser".
The statue of the knight Roland, the symbol of freedom for the Free Hanseatic State of Bremen, stand guard on the Marktplatz in front of the Rathaus, diagonal from the Dom (Cathedral) and directly opposite to the entrance to the Böttcherstrasse.
Although the natives walk by Roland without noticing, he is the second most visited statue in the city (after the Bremer Stadtmusikanten).
Just be careful not to stare too long at him without watching where you're going- the city trams go by pretty quickly, as well as some senior citizen shoppers barging through to get to Karstadt or some other department store.
This is a very impressive building - really fine architecture. It was built in 1537/38, along an exact and delicate style of Flemish-inspired Renaissance architecture.
The mansion is where Bremen`s former guild of merchants used to convene. It is now used as the city`s Chamber of Commerce. The elaborate entrance gate was added in the 19th century.
