Full description
Join this tour through the underground of Bremen and enter premises accessed only ever by a few. Dare to look beneath the surface of Bremen. You have the choice of 2 different tours to explore the city's underworld. Saturday Tour: Your journey into the underworld of the Hanseatic city begins at the elephant statue. Descend into the crypt and learn interesting facts about its history and present-day use. Head to the only underground street in the city of Bremen. This was used for the underground supply of the surrounding shops and was unknown to the Bremen police for a long time. Cross the Bremen ramparts on the way to the Church of Our Lady, where at least 8 bunkers are located. In the Church of Our Lady, visit the crypt used as a tomb in the Middle Ages. Finally, the tour takes you into the scenic basement of the Bremen Theater. See all sorts of props and exciting technology here before making your way back from underground to the surface. Sunday Tour: Your journey begins at the ABC Hochbunker on Admiralstraße. Descend into the Hochbunker and discover the history of WWII air-raid shelters and the development of the bunker during the 20th century. Next, make your way to Bremen's freight yard. At the depot, you'll find the former banana ripening halls of the "fruit yard," where before WW1, inhabitants of Bremen could satisfy their cravings for exotic fruits. On your way to the next station at the Liebfrauenkirche (Church of Our Lady), cross the Bremen ramparts, where at least 8 underground bunkers are hidden. Visit an ground-level bunker at Theaterberg. At the Church of Our Lady, visit the crypt, used in the Middle Ages as a tomb. Learn more about the Übersee Museum and Bremen's only underground cobbled street. Finally, visit the old synagogue in Bremen's Schnoor neightborhood. Here you'll go down to the preserved cellar of the former synagogue, before returning above ground. From January 2017, the Sunday tour will take place in reverse order. The start point is the former synagogue in the Schnoor district. Group tours: The route for the group tour may change depending on the day and time and may include stops from both the Saturday and Sunday itinerary.

The tour was interesting. Although I would call this tour differently. We were mostly on the surface, I expected something different and since it was raining all the time, the mood wasn't too good. Our research guide went to great lengths. I've learned a lot, that's why all the stars are just for you. Thanks.

Interesting tour and information about Bremen below. My highlight was the Admiralstrasse bunker, which you cannot see in its entirety. You can only see the technical floor, but it is still completely intact and therefore interesting. Note on the guide: he was nice and did the tour well, but it was a tall person with the right stride. It would be appropriate to pay attention to his group, whether all people (especially older ones) can keep up with his step on the way between the stations.

Bei schönem Wetter sehr empfehlenswert, da zwischen den einzelnen Stationen doch etliche Meter liegen. Unser "Guide" war cool drauf, hatte immer eine passende Antwort und war sehr nett drauf. Bei schlechtem Wetter weniger zu empfehlen, zwischendurch wird man dann sehr nass. Wir hatten die Führung Nummer 01, alles okay, die Abstände zwischen den Unterwelten okay, die letzte Unterwelt, das Gefängnis, kann man sich sparen. Die letzte Station zieht es einfach nur in die Länge. 01:30 okay ohne letzte Station, 02:00 mit letzter Station. Muss nicht sein. Gebucht über Travel Guide, würden wir direkt nochmal machen. Der Tour Guide, Student der Biologie, informierte am Ende über alle Führungen, die man noch machen könnte, dies aber sehr unaufdringlich. Alles Topp.
