Bremer Freimarkt.

Tips for your trips. Tourist information. Official websites.

Freimarkt in Bremen, first held in 1035, is one of the oldest fairs in Germany. With more than four million visitors each year.

It is celebrated for 17 days in the last two weeks of October, somewhat extended from Friday to Sunday. The area covers approximately 100,000 square meters on two areas: the so-called “Kleiner Freimarkt” (Small Free Fair, map) on the market square, and the main area at the “Bürgerweide” (map) adjacent to the Main Station and the Exhibition Center.

The highlight is the “Freimarktsumzug” (lit. Free Fair Procession) held on the second Saturday of the festival.

No other funfair offers visitors so many attractions as the Bremer Freimarkt. About 50 fairground rides provide some tingling moments for young and old. Nowhere else such exciting celebrations took place as in the hanseatic city by the weser. Every year since 1035 the city celebrated these market rights and maintained one of the longest funfair traditions in Germany.

Bremen Bürgerweide provides over 300 showmen on 100.000 square meters with their stalls and rides for entertainment. Who ever prefers a leisurely stroll, then best on Bremer marketplace. On the “little Freimarkt”, visitors will discover a feast for the senses. Deep-frying dough, hot almonds and spicy liquorices attract one to the lovely stalls built by old paragons. And when the bell rings to start a ride on a casrousel of nosttalgia, not only children’s eyes will light up.

The way back to the beginnings of the “Freimarkt” leads us just arround the corner. Middel Ages begin between the historic walls of town hall and Liebfrauenkirche. In the market town of 1382, retailers offerd their goods – at open fires the blacksmiths, glassblowers and stonemasons demonstrated their crafts while jugglers and singers told about the beginnings.

Bremen was once a member of the medieval Hanseatic League and is still one of the most important cities in northern Germany. Together with the city of Bremerhaven on the North Sea it forms Germany’s smallest state. Bremen has more than 1200 years of history, and was, for most of its existence, an independent city-state.
