Boat tours on the Weser river
Opt for a trip on the water or simply watch the boats go by, take a stroll or while away the hours eating, drinking, partying or simply enjoying life. There is something for everyone on the Schlachte Embankment.
From a 'Captain's Dinner', a theatre evening or concert on board ship to leisurely tours to Bremerhaven or further inland on the Wümme or Lesum rivers, the Schlachte pleasure boats offer a varied programme of attractions.
Going out along the Schlachte
Those who prefer things a bit more informal will enjoy the many terraces and beer gardens that offer plenty of scope to relax and unwind. Try a typical Bremen beer or a Bavarian beer in the traditional one-litre glass, enjoy coffee and cakes on land or on board ship. The range of food and drink on offer at the Schlachte Embankment is as diverse as our guests. The beer gardens alone provide space for more than 2,000 people during the summer.
Throughout the year, the riverside promenade offers a number of varied events on or beside the water. From the start of May until the last weekend in September, you can get the weekend off to a swinging start with live music every Saturday from 10am to 4pm. Held since 1986, the Kajenmarkt or quayside market attracts tourists and locals in their thousands with a mix of music, market stalls and maritime charm.
In July, things hot up along the Schlachte Embankment, as the members of the Schlachte Marketing and Service Association put up a bar along the beer gardens and hold a BBQ party. On offer are spare ribs, suckling pig, wild boar sausages and other BBQ favourites, as well as active entertainments for all ages.
