2,362 hectares of Bremen's urban area are green. This figure makes the Hanseatic City one of the greenest cities in Germany. Numerous parks, gardens, green spaces and green corridors criss-cross the entire city area. Each district has its own quiet zones to offer, where you can find space to breathe at all times of the year right on your doorstep.
Bremen's Bürgerpark is located in the heart of the city. With a green area of over two hundred hectares, it is one of the most important landscape parks in Germany. Walks take you past playgrounds, an animal enclosure and a mini-golf course. Visitors to the park can relax on countless sunbathing lawns or explore the grounds on a boat trip.
An equally beautiful landscape garden is located in the historic Wallanlagen. They enclose Bremen's city centre like a green ribbon. The Rhododendron Park is an attraction far beyond the city's borders. The park, which is unique in Germany, is home to around 550 species of rhododendron. Since summer 2003, "botanika", the green science centre, with its fascinating plant world, has been inviting visitors to make extraordinary discoveries.
Knoops Park in St. Magnus, a district of North Bremen, is one of the most beautiful parks in Bremen. Once a year, open-air concerts with classical music by the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen take place here: "Sommer in Lesmona". It offers relaxation, musical enjoyment and fun for classical music lovers, bon vivants and the whole family.
