The Centre of the City

Plenty of attractions and cultural activities make Bremen’s Mitte (Middle) the heart of the city in more than just the geographical sense. With around 17,000 residents, the city centre may not be the most populated neighbourhood in Bremen, but it is a daily destination point for most of its citizens. Whether for work, shopping, or stepping out – there’s always something going on in Bremen’s Mitte.

Impressions of Bremen Mitte

Quintessential Bremen Mitte

History meets modernity in the Mitte district. The old town has been the centre of the Hanseatic city for around 2,000 years. The Schnoor is Bremen's oldest and probably one of the most attractive neighbourhoods. In recent years, a modern media quarter has developed in the Stephaniviertel, which also belongs to the old town and is located further west, connecting the city centre with Überseestadt. To the east, the Ostertor district, which together with Steintor, part of the Östliche Vorstadt, forms the popular "Das Viertel", pulsates during the day and at night. In addition to plenty of culture, you will find plenty of restaurants, a distinctive pub scene, small alleyways and numerous examples of the typical old Bremen house. The Bahnhofsvorstadt is quite different: the neighbourhood is characterised by four- to six-storey residential buildings, numerous office buildings and the central transport hub, the Main Station. The rents in the Mitte district are just as varied as its neighbourhoods. Depending on the location, you will find a wide range of options here, from affordable one-bedroom flats to exclusive city flats.

Good to Know!

When taking a leisurely stroll along the Obernstraße - one of the main shopping thoroughfares in the Bremer City - mind the tram! Although it’s a pedestrian zone, the tram lines 2 and 3 run through here. Bicycles, on the other hand, shouldn’t be a problem: Throughout the entire inner city, cycling is only allowed between the hours of 20:00-11:00 and on Sundays.
