If you're going on an excursion with children, you need a few things in your luggage: drinks, a few snacks for the road and a strong set of nerves for when the good mood fades. But above all, you need a programme that is fun for the little ones! Bremen has many attractions that are suitable for children. We have put together a few tips for you.

1 The Bremen Town Musicians play

Free and outside: the well-known fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm will be performed every Sunday from 19 July to 25 October 2020 at 12 o'clock on the Domshof. As donkey, dog, cat and rooster, the performers from the Interaktiwo Theatre will make sure you have fun and are in a good mood. Find out more here.

In the heart of the hip Bremer neighbourhood, "the Viertel", the puppet theatre "Mensch, Puppe!" has its home. The theatre has a family programme with fairy tales and other stories beautifully staged for children from the age of three up.

1 Café Sand

A popular outing in the summer months is Café Sand. Enjoy a holiday in the sun in the middle of the city replete with a sandy beach, a restaurant with sundeck terrace, and a beer garden. The shallow water, perfect for splashing in, and the wide band of sand, ideal for building sand castles, make this a perfect spot for families with small children. You can board the Hal Över ferry to Café Sand at Osterdeich.
