Bremen, Germany - an historical haven

The actual port of call was Bremerhaven on the north coast of Germany, a popular start point for overland excursions to Hamburg. We had chosen instead to remain in the region known as the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen and to visit Bremen itself, about 35 miles south on the river Weser. Together, Bremerhaven and Bremen comprise modern Germany's smallest federal state, second most populous northern region and the tenth largest nationwide.
More than 1,200 years of history, including UNESCO World Heritage sites, is on display just in the market place of Bremen, all in the middle of a thriving modern city. Seemed like an idea to check it out and see more pictures here.
