City of Bremen, Bremen (state), Germany

Bremen is a city in north west Germany. A port city along the river Weser, Bremen is part of the Bremen-Oldenburg metropolitan area. Bremen and Bremerhaven are the two cities in the state of Bremen.
Many of the sights in Bremen are found in the Altstadt (Old Town), an oval area surrounded by the Weser River. The oldest part of the Altstadt is the south east half, starting with the Marktplatz and ending at the Schnoor quarter.
The Marktplatz (Market square) is dominated by the opulent façade of the Town Hall. The building was erected between 1405 and 1410 in Gothic style, but the façade was built two centuries later in Renaissance style. Today, it hosts a restaurant in original decor with gigantic wine barrels, the Ratskeller in Bremen, and the wine lists boasts more than 600, exclusively German, wines. It is also home of the twelve oldest wines in the world, stored in their original barrels in the Apostel chamber.
One of Bremen's most popular attractions, the 110 m Böttcherstraße was transformed from 1923–1931 by local artists who were commissioned to convert the narrow street into an inspired mixture of Gothic and Art Nouveau. It was considered depraved art by the Nazis.
More contemporary tourist attractions in the city, include the Universum Science Center, Beck's Brewery tours, available to the public which include beer tasting and the Kunsthalle Bremen, an art museum with paintings from the 19th and 20th century.
