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.

Eingang Hauptbahnhof Bremen

Arriving by Train

The train brings you conveniently into the heart of the city and you can use the Event Ticket offered by the Deutsche Bahn (German Railway). The Bremen Exhibition and Conference Centre is only a few minutes walk from the main railway station. A short 10 minute walk takes visitors to Bremen across the newly renovated station forecourt and into the historic city centre.

Arriving by Aeroplane 

Bremen Airport links Bremen directly with major German and European airline hubs. It's one of Germany's most modern airports and is only six kilometres from the city centre. That's unique within Germany. Visitors can take the tram at the airport and arrive in the city centre in an unbeatable 11 minutes.

Arriving by Car  

The Bremen Kreuz motorway junction is an important intersection on the A27 (Cuxhaven–Bremerhaven–Hanover) and the A1  (Hamburg–Osnabrück–Rhineland) routes. The A28 links Bremen with East Friesland and Groningen (Netherlands).

To reach the Bremen Exhibition and Conference Centre, we recommend you take the A27  "Bremen-Vahr" and "Bremen-Universität" exits. An efficient traffic control system guides you into the town.


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.
