A great way to begin your visit to Bremen is by heading to the historical part of the city called Schnoor, or "Old Town" to foreigners. Narrow cobbled streets and small buildings make up the area, providing an insight into how the whole city once looked.
To get a great view of the city, drive your rental car to the east side of the river, and visit the Cathedral of St Peter, which is located beside Bremen's Market Square. The highly decorated church dates back to the 9th century and offers an amazing panoramic view of the downtown area from the top of the tower.
Bremen has two UNESCO World Heritage sites dating back over 1000 years in this impressive Market Square: the Roland Statue and the Renaissance Bremen Town Hall, built in gothic style in the 15th century and renovated later in the Renaissance style.
Drive your hire car to the area known as Teerhof located midway across the river, where you will find Neues Museum, one of the most famous museums in the area: here you will find famous artworks from around the world which are usually on loan from private collections and rarely viewable by the public.
Continue across the river to the western half of Bremen and tour one of the most popular attractions in the city, the Becks Brewery, where you can see how the famous beer is made, and try some samples. To escape modern life for a little while spend some time exploring Wildeshauser Geest Nature Park and enjoy ancient oak forests, sand dunes, lakes and rivers, making it the perfect place for a scenic drive, or even to spot for a picnic!
