Bremen is a major German city in the northwest. It is located on the Weser River. The city is the capital of the state (Bundesland) of Bremen. Combined with Bremerhafen, it is a major seaport. If you go sightseeing in Bremen, don't miss the Altstadt (old town) with its medieval flavor, narrow streets (Gassen), gabled houses (Fachwerkhaeuser) and gothic and renaissance buildings. Visit the romanesque Cathedral of Saint Peter (11th century); the 15th-century town hall (Rathaus), which is a blend of gothic and renaissance styles; and the 17th-century merchants' hall (Schütting).
