On the Weser Promenade Schlachte you can enjoy life on the river, in the middle of Bremen. Historic and modern ships offer daily Weser rides. In the beer and summer gardens you can relax with a variety of restaurants. And in winter, the "Schlachte magic" beckons!
The sailing ship Alexander von Humboldt - also called "Alex" for short - is a steel German Bark, which was built in 1906 as a lightship under the name Reserve Sonderburg. In 1986 she was decommissioned as a lightship, rebuilt into a sailing ship and was from 1988 to October 2011 as a youth and training ship in use. As an advertising ship for "Beck's beer" she gained international attention. Today, the Alexander von Humboldt is used as a hotel and catering ship in Bremen. Her successor ship from 2011 was the Alexander von Humboldt II.
