How to spend top weekend in Bremen - ideas on extraordinary attractions and sites

Bremen by night Bremen is rather a small German city, so it feels like nothing can hide from curious eyes of numerous tourists. However, some interesting sights that are not known to the majority of travellers can still be found in the city, even on its most popular streets. Bremen hole, a sanitary sewer manhole located on the central square opposite to the Town Hall building, is a great example of that. At a glance, this sanitary sewer is nothing different from other manholes except strange and unknown writings on the cover. In fact, that sanitary sewer has a secret – a music box with a penny bank attached to it. The music box was installed there by the initiative of a charity in 2007. One needs to put four coins into that unusual penny bank, and the music box will start playing the famous song of Bremen Town Musicians.
Bremen is a seaport with the population of 550 000 people. The city is located on the west bank of the Weser. The historical center of Bremen is surrounded by a green zone, which is made … Open
While walking on Am Markt , many tourists only admire the view of Bremen Town hall . Although it’s not a museum, the building of the Town Hall is open every day. All visitors can see the rooms where the Senate and the President of Germany work. A beautiful building, the Town Hall is no less interesting inside and is recommended for a visit.
House Atlantis is one more unusual architectural landmark that is often neglected by many tourists. The Nazis called the building “an example of degenerative art”, and modern experts consider the building a true masterpiece of expressionism. The building is distinguished not only by its unusual outer look, but also by amazing inner premises. The abundance of unusual elements made of wood, glass and concrete, layered ceiling and winding ladders, and the absolutely stunning Heaven’s Hall with mosaic cupola make this building an absolute must-visit place. Currently, a Hilton hotel is located in the unusual building, but not only guests of the hotel are welcome to visit the building and admire its unique design. On Mondays, Atlantis House is open for everyone. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Bottcherstraße remains one of the most famous and popular tourist streets in Bremen. During a walk there, you will see many interesting sights and architecture landmarks. Building 4, which is also known as The house with the ringing of bells or the Glockenspiel House, is the most mysterious house on the street. Many consider these miniature bells to be a mere decoration of the façade, but in true the 30 bells are an important part of a music instrument named carillon that is built into the house. It is possible to hear the music produced by the carillon several times a day on certain hours. From March to January the carillon plays more often – every hour from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. You will see a rotating tower not far from the music instrument. When the music plays, flaps in the tower open, and visitors can see 10 slowly changing panels with interesting pictures.
