Social program


In addition to the program, the following arrangements and social activities are intended:

On the weekend of June 20st - 21nd we will offer sightseeing tours and excursions to all participants.
In summer the city of Bremen provides a wide range of relaxing activities and entertainment.
The riverside Free Hanseatic City of Bremen is famous for its charming Old Town, the Town Hall which was awarded UNESCO World Heritage in 2004 and not to forget the Bremen Town Musicians. Beyond there is a great variety of  first rate restaurants and beer .

On June 20st you will have the possibility to participate in a Weser- and  Harbor round tour starting from Martini wharf.
The “Cast off!” excursion starts from St. Martini merchant’s church downstream along the so called “Schlachte” to the city harbors. During the round tour you can enjoy the view at dikes, harbors, boats and ships floating with the current of the Weser.

  • More historic sites can be discovered during a guided tour through the city. During the approx. 1,5 hour tour you will learn about the history of the city center and hear about the newest tendencies and economic developments of the Hanseatic City.
  • Another destinations is Bremerhaven. Highlights of the one day trip on June 21nd are the harbor tour by double deck-bus and the visit of the German Emigration Center. The German Emigration Center is located in an authentic location in Bremerhaven directly at the New Harbor, which was opened in 1852. Here one can track the migration movements of the 19th and 20th century. The German Emigration Center is Europe`s largest adventure museum on the subject of emigration.

We are looking forward to welcome you on that weekend!
