Life as a Student

Bremen isn’t known as a student stronghold for nothing - around 35,000 study here. Many live in the Viertel, where the nightlife pulsates. But the Neustadt, with lots of artsy bars, is also well beloved by students. And it’s where the Hochschule Bremen City University of Applied Sciences is located. Those who prefer to be closer to the University of Bremen should have a look at Horn or Schwachhausen. Additionally, the student union offers numerous rentals. Information about all neighborhoods is available on our Neighourhoods page.

Age-appropriate and independent living senior residencies, multi-generational housing or shared senior apartments are available all over Bremen – the Bremer Heimstiftung alone maintains over 20 houses.  Educational institutions and travel groups have also adjusted their programs to the needs of the older generation.

Family Living

You’ve come to Bremen with your family and are looking for a quieter area? On the outskirts of town, you’ll find more remote areas along the great expanse of border to the state of Lower Saxony – for example, Oberneuland or Vegesack. But you can also find pockets of peaceful idyll inside the city, near parks or on the water. The Neustadt is very green and family friendly in the area directly at the large Werdersee. Those who prefer things a bit more urbane will feel at home in Walle or the Viertel. Find your favorite area in our Neigbhourhood page!
