Bremen’s Beaches

Get wet in cool Northern waters

Can’t wait for summer? We can’t either … especially since we can spend the season at the sandy Weser beach and the beautiful Werdersee. Forget parks and open-air pools: these two options to take a swim are much better for that certain beach flair and summer vibe. Summer days are the best!

A nicely arranged sandy beach, a perfectly placed café, cold water - welcome to Northern Germany’s Weser; more accurately to the Isle of the Weser. Doesn’t that already sound like a great adventure? Right?

Something you should take? Not much. The “Café Sand” will take care of all our culinary needs during the summer: cake, ice cream, breakfast (Sunday brunch is amazing!), cold drinks. Spend the day in a wicker beach chair or on one of the coveted sun loungers. 

Do you prefer a bit more of a lake feel for summer? No problem, just 15 min on foot from the “Café Sand”, the wonderful Werdersee can be found - a favorite with the locals. More than 120 acres of pure swimming fun, lots of shade to relax underneath the gorgeous trees - the lake is a true recreational wonderland.

One more tip: If you don’t want to dive in, but rather just dip your toes into the water, check out the „fish stairs“. This little narrowing of the Werdersee is ideally suited for a stop over by the water and a picnic. 

So, get your beach gear ready, put on those mirrorshades and enjoy the summer brise. The Sielwallfähre (the ferry near the seawall) will bring you directly to the beach. Life is beautiful!
