Five Parts Form the Whole

In Hemelingen, maritime flair, proximity to the country, and a large industrial zone come together. Bremen’s second largest neighbourhood is comprised of five sections with one thing in common - being near to the water. Located on the right side of the Weser, its lakes and parks offer a good amount of leisure activities. Economically, Hemelingen has traditionally been one of the areas where international corporations are located.

Quintessential Hemelingen

The five sections of Hemelingen each offer something special. For those who prefer the charms of the country, Arbergen - with the Arberger Mill and the traditional market on the village square - is the place. Mahndorf also has rural origins, with a lake for swimming and a modern train station. Overall, it’s a quiet residential area with single-family houses and one area of tower blocks. Going toward the city centre, you’ll find the sections of Hemelingen and Hastedt, with their mixture of traditional "Bremer Häusern" and more functionally built row houses. Almost one-third of the area of the section of Sebaldsbrück is occupied by companies like Daimler, which has a factory there. The other side of Sebaldsbrück has quiet residential areas and the idyllic Schlosspark. Since the undertaking of numerous redevelopment measures, the neighbourhood of Hemelingen is easily reached by local and city transport, and the traffic in residential areas have been greatly alleviated.

Mahndorf Lake

The Mahndorfer See is great place to get that much-needed R&R. The 20-hectare total surface area provides room enough for enthusiastic swimmers, and the sandy beach offers the perfect place for basking in the sun or building a sand castle. There are plenty of places along the shore to relax, and barbecuing is allowed. All around the lake, the natural landscape forms the perfect backdrop for a lovely walk at any time of the year.

A Walk along the Weserwehr

Regulating the water level of the Weser is the main job of the Weserwehr. The area is also a wonderful place to take a long walk along the water.
