The days are shorter, the temperatures are dropping – winter has come to Bremen. Christmas will be here soon, which means we can look forward to the Christmas market and the magic of the Schlachte-Zauber. The frosty air also brings the Kohlfahrt (kale-outing) season. Experience a wonderful wintertime in Bremen!

Schlachte Magic on the Weser

From 23 November-23 December, it’s properly festive on the Weser promenade with the Schlachte-Zauber: The air is scented with burning wood, roasted fare and spices. And in the medieval wooden huts, you can enjoy some mead or fruit wine while watching the crafts men and women at their work.

The Schaffermahlzeit

The Bremen Schaffermahl banquet has been taking place for almost 500 years, making it one of the oldest traditions in all of Germany. The banquet where the captains of commerce, shipping, industry and politics come together to share a meal and converse – following rules that have remained practically unchanged after all these years – will be held again in February 2018.
