German City Series: Bremen

Upon learning that Bremen was in fact the namesake for the Bremen Town Musicians, I couldn't resist investigating this German town. Nestled on the river Weser, this Hanseatic destination is full of surprises.

Upon learning that Bremen was in fact the namesake for the Grimm's Fairy Tale Bremen Town Musicians, I couldn’t resist investigating the town. Only an hour drive/train ride from Hamburg, Bremen is a fantastic choice for a quick trip on Germany’s Fairy Tale road. Nestled on the Weser river, this Hanseatic destination is full of surprises.
