Explore Bremen, the historical city that Charlemagne founded more than 1,200 years ago, entirely at your own pace.

Depart from the pier and drive south for one-hour, somewhat paralleling the Weser River, which connects Bremerhaven and Bremen. The latter is the cosmopolitan government seat of Germany’s smallest state, the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen, which also includes Bremerhaven. As such, it’s rich in history, much of which is reflected through its splendid architecture.

Upon arriving at Bremen’s spectacular city center, you will have approximately four hours on your own to explore the attractions that you find most intriguing. The beauty of this on your own tour is that you can spend more time where you want, lingering at attractions until you’re ready to move on, and then continuing at your own pace.

Among the highlights you may wish to consider are the beautiful town hall, parts of which were constructed in the 15th century, a 600-year-old statue of Roland, and a bronze sculpture of the Bremen Town Musicians, four fairytale animals immortalized in a story by the Brothers Grimm. You may also enjoy strolling along the narrow lanes of the charming Schnoor District, which dates back to the 15th century. Although Bremen is hailed for its architecture, it almost lost one of its finest buildings during World War II, when the city cathedral was nearly razed in an Allied air raid. Afterwards, it was restored to its present condition.

Following your free time in Bremen, you will rejoin your coach at the appointed time and meeting place for the drive back to the pier in Bremerhaven. Those who are late meeting the coach will be responsible for making their own way back to the ship, at their own expense.

Please note: No guided tour applies on this excursion, only transportation to and from Bremen. An official escort will be on the coach and will provide information about Bremen and places to visit. There are uneven and cobblestone streets in the city center. Walking on this tour is solely at the guests’ discretion. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Guests should be prepared for the possibility of rain. The travel time to Bremen is approximately 1-hour in each direction.
