Your arrival

By bike

The favourite means of transportation of Bremen residents is the bicycle – and there’s a good reason for that! The numerous and extensive bicycle paths and regional cycle routes take you through Bremen in a very special way.

Places to park your bike

Right in downtown Bremen you will, of course, find many bicycle stands where you can park your bike. Should you prefer a covered place to leave your bicycle, however, you can park your two-wheeler securely, protected and free of charge in the Mitte and Am Brill parking garages. If you have baggage with you that you also want to leave somewhere while you explore Bremen on foot, the ADFC bicycle station at the central railway station offers its own parking garage.

Service for your bike

Do you have a flat tyre but don’t want to miss your cycling trip? Then make use of the repair shop at ADFC’s bicycle station. There you will receive prompt assistance for your bike and, if you wish, a free rental bike as a temporary replacement.
