The people of Bremen feel a special connection with their bikes. In a city in which the highest natural elevation, cathedral hill, is only thirteen metres, it makes sense to switch to two wheels. Bikes account for 25 percent of all traffic in Bremen, which is more than in any other German city with a population of more than half a million. Cycling in Bremen isn’t merely an everyday affair, it’s also a part of the culture and, of course, a lot of fun.
The cycle paths are generally in good condition and particularly scenic, following the river Weser and running alongside canals and through green spaces. They pass through cosy parts of the city as well as busier quarters, and connect local places of interest, cultural attractions, science hubs, parks and landscapes. The Green Ring Network of cycling trails is ideal for exploring the area around Bremen. You can also reach Bremen from all directions on long-distance cycle routes.
