Too far north? Not at all! Bremen is a city with the best connections: no matter whether you're travelling by car, bus, train or aeroplane, you'll get to Bremen easily and conveniently by all kinds of means of transport.
Good to know: Bremen's Environmental Zone
Bremen has had an Environmental Zone since January 2009. Only vehicles with a green badge are allowed to travel in the old town, the eastern suburbs, some parts of the Schwachhausen district and most of the Neustadt neighbourhood.
Touring coaches are also required to have a green badge.
Exception: Overnight guests do not need this driver permit. Simply carrying their hotel booking confirmation with them permits them to cross the Environmental Zone to reach their accommodation, without the need for a permit.
Special provision: The Bürgerweide at the Bremen Exhibition and Conference Centre, with its parking spaces, and the Willy-Brandt-Platz square at the main railway station's northern exit, are not in the Environmental Zone.
