The Weser, which flows directly through the heart of the city of Bremen, was the reason why the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen changed into a Hanseatic metropolis. Shipping has always played a major role. The 1,200-year-old city attracts tourists today because of its charming maritime flair or historic old town and the promise to take travellers back to their childhood on the trail of Bremen's city musicians.
The region around Bremen is extremely suitable for water events of all kinds. A large number of business hotels are available for indoor events or as locations for bad weather variants.
