Messe Bremen - Olympic Center
The Glocke (The Bell)
The concert hall "Die Glocke" (the Bell) is well-known all over Europe. Herbert von Karajan, the famous conductor, counted it among the three best concert halls in Europe for its outstanding acoustics.
Its ambience is characterised by the Art Déco interior of the lobby and concert halls as well as its central location close by the historic market square in Bremen.
Church "Unser Lieben Frauen"
The church "Unser Lieben Frauen" (Our lady) dates from the 13th century.
It is the ancient council church of Bremen and thus built directly next to the town hall. Its colourful church windows were made by the French artist Alfred Manessier and are especially beautiful.
St. Peter’s Cathedral
The St. Peter’s Cathedral looks back on 1200 years of history. Its front in an early gothic style was built in the first half of the 13th century. Especially remarkable are the Western and the Eastern crypt, the oldest parts of the cathedral, as well as its mighty organs.
The Town Hall
The gothic-style town hall dating back to the 15th century received a new facade in the style of the Weser Renaissance in the 17th century. It is counted among the most beautiful town halls in Germany. Still today, the Bremen town hall is the seat of the senate (government administration of the Land of Bremen) as well as the mayor’s office. To the West of it, you can find the famous bronze sculpture of the Bremen Town Musicians.
The cobble-stone market square forms a Hanseatic cross.
In its immediate vicinity, the Roland, Bremen’s landmark, a number of famous historic buildings and the famous Böttcherstraße can be found.
Congress-Centre of Bremen (CCB) in the Maritim Hotel
The Congress-Centre Bremen is located directly on the Bürgerpark (citizens’ park), the "green heart" of the Hanseatic town on the river Weser and is just a few minutes walk away from the town centre.
The CCB has got a direct connection to the Maritim Hotel.
