October 2018: Bremen

Bremen lies in the North German Plain on the River Weser, about 120km southwest of Hamburg and a similar distance northwest of Hanover. The former member of the Hanseatic League has over 1,200 years of history, most of this as an independent city-state. Today, Bremen supports a population of around 550,000 and together with the physically separate port of Bremerhaven, it forms the smallest of the German federal states. The only other purely urban Länder are the considerably larger cities of Hamburg and Berlin.

Although widely considered to be a down-to-earth working city, Bremen has its fair share of museums, galleries and theatres. It also has an attractive Altstadt (old town).
