I would definetly say that Bremen is one of the most unsafe cities for women in northern germany. Especially when you go clubbing, you should know that you‘ll be touched at least one time at that evening. Its very sad because I love Bremen, but its the truth..

I think it makes a big difference whether you travel at night or during the day and the individual districts differ greatly from one another. Bremen center is one of the areas where I no longer want to be out and about alone at night as a woman. I have (rarely) experienced sexual harassment when I am outside in the evening or night. Compared to other countries, however, it may still be safer in Bremen. I lack experience there.

Bremen is a small cute city with some really cool places to discover. The Weser is running right through it so there is a lot to do if you like water. It's also very near to the Nordsee and therefore has a good connection to the sea. It's safe at night except for the main station but at night it can be dangerous when you are out alone

I’m living in Bremen since October. When I came here I found a bit small the city, but with the pass of the time I have realised that the city is very beautiful. I will highlight this three spots, which are the most visited and also the most beautiful; - City center Square (Dom/Rathaus) -Böttcherstraße -Schnoor neighbourhood However, there are amazing plans to do and places to visit like: - walk through the Osterdeich / Schlachte 🤩 - rent a bike and go through the Bürguerpark, find the farm with Alpacas 🚲 - go to Viertel pubs to drink beer 🍻 - Kunst Halle, Focke, Universum 📚 - Am wall Bremen is quite calm. Maybe for me that I’m from Spain, sometimes I feel there is not to much ambience nor people in the streets. That everybody goes home early and there is no life. But, you also find the beauty in calm. 🖤

About me

Hi I’m Katrin and I’m originally from Bavaria in Germany. I used to live somewhere close to Munich but I moved to Bremen a few years ago to start studying Art therapy. I finished my 5 semester in March but decided to take a break and continue in September again. Before that I used to be an Aupair in the US and I lived with an American family for a whole year in Portland, Oregon. I watched 3 kids and we had a great connection, that’s why I’m back visiting them for my 3rd time now. I am very easy going person in general and I love good conversations and listen to peoples stories. I’m very interested in getting to know people from all over the world and see the different lifestyles. I’m usually very social but I also don’t mind being left alone and spent time with myself. You would find me sitting somewhere outside and either scribe in my scratch book or read.
