Whether from high above the city, across the broad north German landscape, or along with Weser river – Bremen offers a lot of breath-taking views. Here are our recommendations for the best views in Bremen, where you can take some great pictures.


Being located directly on the water creates a special atmosphere in Bremen. And a great view of the Weser should be a must for any visitor. Gazing at the river in the evenings hours is especially enchanting, with the lights of the promenades bouncing off the water. Particularly pretty is the view from the Stephanibrücke in the direction of the Schlachte or, as shown in the photo below, from the promenade in the Überseestadt at the level of the GOP Varieté Theater.

Bamberger High-Rise

A great view of Bremen from on high can be seen from the roof terrace of the Bamberger high-rise building. During the open hours of the building, which houses the Volkshochschule, you can enjoy a practically unobstructed view of Bremen in all directions. In the summer months, the terrace is a lush green – the roof garden is one of Bremen’s highest located urban gardening projects.

Observation Tower on the Hollerdeich

Outside of town, on the Hollerdeich in Oberneuland, the view continues for as far the eye can see. The observation tower allows you to take in the sweeping landscape of the Borgfelder Wümmewiesen, a nature reserve under protection. Combine the outing to the observation tower with a bike trip – the route along the dike is worth it!

The Molenfeuer, located on the tip of the harbour basin in the Überseestadt, is a little treasure with a big view. The charming "Mäuseturm" (Mouse Tower) offers a wonderfully serene experience of observing the Weser river, and is especially beautiful at sunset.

The South Tower of St. Peter’s Cathedral

265 steps lay between you and Bremen city centre’s best view. Challenge yourself from April to October to climb the 98.5-metre-high south tower of the Cathedral and enjoy Bremen from above. Check the opening times at www.stpetridom.de

City Garden Vegesack

The City Garden of Vegesack (Stadtgarten Vegesack) not only contains many distinctive botanical specimens, it also offers spectacular views. This public park is located directly on the Weser river. You can climb a set of stairs to get an amazing view of the beautiful garden with the expanse of the Weser just beyond.

Utkiek an’n Weser Stadion

Utkiek an’n Weser Stadion - that’s Low German for the "The View from the Weser Stadium". The stadium, where Weder Bremen’s home games take place, sits directly on the Weser river. Positioned just at a bend in the river, the view from the stadium offers not only a magnificent aspect of the river itself, but the cityscape of Bremen as well.

The Wallanlagen is an oasis in the middle of the city. Numerous benches to sit on and the chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, make it a popular spot for lunch breaks. Sit back on one of these benches by the Wallgraben and enjoy the beautiful panorama.

Mehrzweckhochhaus (MZH) at the University of Bremen

The eight-floor balcony of the MZH building at the University of Bremen offers an unobstructed view across the horizon. If the weather is good, the Bremen skyline is clearly delineated: Look for the Weser Stadium, St. Peter’s Cathedral and the TV tower.

Melcherbrücke in Bürgerpark

All throughout the Bürgerpark there are numerous idyllic spots with delightful vistas. A particularly beautifully pastoral scene is offered at the Melchersbrücke (Melchers Bridge). On one side of the bridge is a view of the park leading down to the Grand Park Hotel, on the other, the dairy.

Terrace of the Haus des Reichs

True, one doesn’t usually associate the tax office with a wonderful view. But behind the massive walls of the Haus des Reichs (House of the Realm) sceptics will be won over. From the terrace of the restaurant "La Cantina" guests can take in a panoramic view of the Wallanlage and the city centre.
