Bremen, the buzzing city on the Weser river, has many different facets. Character-laden streets, welcoming local people and a fantastic programme of music and culture all contribute to its appeal. With a fascinating history and its Hanseatic heritage, Bremen offers innovation with a maritime flair. The tenth-largest city in Germany has a charm all of its own.
Nuremberg is the second largest city in Bavaria and is famous for gingerbread, toys and its unique Christmas markets. The old city of Nuremberg has preserved the old-world charm of a classic German city: half-timbered houses, gothic churches and a medieval city wall all in the shadow of the towering imperial castle. On the other hand, Nuremberg and its neighboring cities are home to many of Germany’s best-known companies. Nuremberg also lives up to its culinary expectations with fantastic breweries and beer
gardens and, of course its signature dish, Nuremberg sausages with Sauerkraut.
