Short distances and over 1,000 kilometers of cycle paths. Urban living between 11 lakes and rivers. Over 1,500 restaurants and bars alongside legendary pubs. Bremen is a city of contrasts, and that’s perfect – especially for students, as there is plenty to experience off-campus.
RULE NUMBER ONE:
WE SAY “BREM”.
Bremen only needs one syllable and no frills. The city on the Weser is down to earth yet open. The Hanse, port and trade have ensured that Bremen has always had to change with the times.

Here’s the good news: in Bremen, rental prices are still below the national average. As in every city, the prices vary greatly depending on the location. The Student Services Organisation provides over 2,000 places in furnished accommodation, which are especially suited to new arrivals and students from abroad. Depending on your budget, you can rent your own place or apply for support such as a housing allowance.
CULTURE and SPORT.
Even though Bremen locals respond to everything with “Jo,” conviviality and sociability are a big thing in the Hanseatic city. Around 35 festivals per year, numerous concerts and cultural events form a colorful contrast to studying. And if you want to push your body to the limit and meet new people, check out the Verein für Hochschulsport e.V. university sports program. From Argentinian tango to football and circuit training, there is something for everyone here. And if you are a fan of the wind and the waves, you can set sail for the North Sea directly from the city.
