Small vs. Big
Bremen is a rather small city (548.547 inhabitants) in the North of Germany. Nevertheless, its world-ranking seaport and position as an important location for automobile manufactures (Mercedes-Benz) and aerospace industry (Airbus) as well as electronics, steel industry and shipbuilding, make it an attractive city. You can reach Bremen easily by train, plane or car. Did you know that the airport is located only few minutes from the city centre? By train you will even arrive in the very heart of Bremen, near the shopping streets. But why choose Bremen for your next MICE or leisure trip?
