Town Hall and Roland on the Marketplace of Bremen

Town Hall and Roland on the Marketplace of Bremen

The Town Hall of Bremen is the seat of the President of the Senate and Mayor of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. It is one of the most important examples of Brick Gothic architecture in Europe. Since 1973, it is protected by the monument protection act. In July 2004, along with the Bremen Roland, the building was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The city hall stands on the market square of the historic town centre. Directly in front of it is the statue of Roland, mentioned above. Opposite the square the Chamber of Commerce is located, to the right are Bremen Cathedral and the modern parliament building, whilst to the left is Our Lady’s Church. On the west side of the square the sculpture The Town Musicians of Bremen by Gerhard Marcks is displayed.

The Bremer Schaffermahl is a traditional banquet held in the Town Hall annually.
