We want to make sure that you feel welcome here at the University and in Bremen. One way we try to achieve this is by offering different types of excursions to help you get to know Bremen and other places nearby. These events are a great way to learn more about life and culture in Bremen and Germany, and also provide the opportunity to meet fellow researchers at the University of Bremen. All current information about upcoming events can be found on this web page, including full event itineraries, and you can also register for them right here in less than two minutes. We look forward to meeting you on one of our excursions!
