Check out the numerous spots from which to gaze upon the best views in Bremen. Here are our recommendations for the best views in Bremen and where to find the best photo spots along the Weser, across the broad northern German countryside or from high above.
You can enjoy a great panoramic view of Bremen from the 40-meter-high so called “trash mountain”, which is the highest mountain in Bremen. The platform is publicly accessible and open 24/7, 365 days a year. Besides being reminiscent of Stonehenge, the artwork Metalhenge is an astronomical viewpoint. The steles located to the east mark the rising points of selected stars on the horizon, while the ones to the west indicate the points of the sunset and moonset.
As the city of Bremen is located directly on the water, a special atmosphere is present. Therefore, the Weser is a must-see for any visitor. Gazing at the river in the evening 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 near the GOP Varieté Theater.

In the heart of the city center, 265 steps separate you from a wonderful view over the entire city center. Conquer the 98.5-meter-high southern tower of the cathedral from April to October and admire the view over Bremen from high above. Keep in mind the opening hours of the St. Peter's Cathedral (St. Petri Dom).
The City Garden of Vegesack (Stadtgarten Vegesack) not only contains many distinctive botanical species, it also offers spectacular views. This public park is located directly on the Weser. Climb a set of stairs to get an amazing view of the beautiful garden and the river.

The "Wallanlagen" are 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.

We admit that one doesn’t usually associate the tax office with a wonderful view. But behind the massive walls of the House of the Empire (Haus des Reichs) sceptics will be won over. From the terrace of the restaurant "La Cantina" guests can take in a panoramic view of the Wallanlagen and the city center.
