Welcome to the guide to taking train to Bremen hbf, which includes access to the station info and links to local local websites.
At Bremen hbf the railway tracks are up above street level, so the platforms/tracks (gleis) are connected to the main station building by a passage way which is beneath them.
In the middle of each gleis (platform/track) there are stairs and an elevator which link them to the passage way.
This passage way isn’t an ordinary subway because it houses most of the shops and food/drink outlets in the station.
One end of the passage way opens out into the elegant main station hall, which dates from the 1880s and is at street level.
On one side of the main hall is the ticket office and advance travel desks - the Reisezentrum.
The left luggage lockers are in the passage way beyond the ticket office.
There is a large concourse right in front of the station and to the left of when exiting Bremen Hbf are the taxi rank and the tram station.
If you’ll heading to the far side of the historic old town area, which dominates the city centre, an option is to take tram lines/routes
4 – direction Arsten
8 – direction Roland-Center
6 – direction Flughafen (thereby providing a direct public transport connection between the station and the airport).
All of these lines go to the stop named ‘Domschiede’ which is located by the rear of Bremen cathedral – a 3 min walk from the main square in the heart of the city.
Or this main square is a 12 – 20 min walk from Bremen Hauptbahnhof, walk straight ahead across the square in front of the station and then follow the tram tracks down the street named BahnhofstraBe.
Then keep the tram tracks on your left until you reach the edge of the heart of the city, which is on the other side of a bridge over a stream.
The tram tracks will then bend to the left, but go straight ahead on the traffic-free street named SogestraBe and turn left at its far end.
