Bremen is a city in northern Germany,
located along the Weser river about 60km from its estuary in the North Sea. It is in the centre of the Lower Saxony state, although together with Bremerhaven it forms a separate German state. With 570000 inhabitants Bremen is the 11th largest city of Germany.
The area around Bremen has been settled since 12000 BC, and the city emerged in the 11th century. During the Middle Ages Bremen was a member city of the Hanseatic League, a confederation of towns in northwestern and central Europe, dominating the Baltic maritime trade for three centuries.
Bremen has an attractive historic core, centered on the market square where there are some significant historic structures: the city hall, the cathedral and the Roland statue. From there it's a short walk, crossing the Wallgraben moat park to the central station, a picturesque 19th century building.
