Bike Touring Highlight
Bremen looks back on 1200 years of history and tradition. The market square with the historical buildings and the House of Citizenship is the center of the Hanseatic city. On the west side are from left to right the Sparkasse with the facade from 1755, next to the Ratsapotheke and the "excise" of 1595 (replaced by a New building 1830) as well as the "German house" from more recent time.
The Bremer Roland, a Roland statue erected in 1404 on the market square in front of the town hall, is a landmark of Bremen. Since 1973, the Roland is a listed building and was declared in 2004 together with the town hall by UNESCO World Heritage Site of Humanity.  The figure has a height of 5.47 meters and stands on a 60-centimeter high, stepped podium. In the back she is supported by a pillar crowned by a gothic ornamented canopy. Thus, the monument reaches a total height of 10.21 meters, making it the largest free-standing statue of the German Middle Ages.
