Museums and Theatre

Avant-garde and Old Masters, tradition and the pleasure of experimentation, natural history and folklore – the variety of the museum landscape is so diverse. And in the area of theatre, you will find great productions, but you will also find variety performances, puppet theatre, classics, comedies and improvisation.

Markets and festivals in Bremen

The Breminale is well-known even outside the region, the Freimarkt - the local funfair carnival - is celebrated in Bremen as a fifth season, and gourmet festivals regularly tickle the taste buds of their visitors. The Christmas market in the Weser-city is considered one of the most beautiful in Germany. These and many other markets and festivals can be found in the Bremen calendar every year.
