Only 11 kilometers away from the historical city center, the neighborhood of Osterholz is very central. Popular with singles, families, seniors alike, altogether around 38,000 people live in the neighborhood sections of Tenever, Blockdiek, Ellener Feld, Ellenerbrok-Schevemoor and Osterholz.
Many Bremen residents think of tower blocks when they hear Osterholz. The section of Tenever is a living example of the 1970’s craze for high-rises. The Kesseler Block and Block 410 have been removed to create green space and a skating park, and continual modernization in recent years has ensured a boost in the neighborhood’s living quality. The original village charm of the section of Osterholz encounters modern single-family homes and Bremen’s largest shopping center: The Weserpark. The Blockdiek is shopping-wise also well equipped, having its own shopping center as well as a weather-proof, roofed farmers’ market. One of the largest cemeteries in North Germany lies in Blockdiek, the Osterholzer Friedhof. It contains the gravestones of famous people and a memorial for the fallen of war. The cemetery was created as a park and stretches over 80 hectares. The sections of Ellenerbrok-Schevermoor and Ellener Feld combine the rural and the urban: Multifamily and single-family houses with gardens create the picture of a green city.
