The places in bremen lie closely together. You can get everywhere by bicycle. The people in Bremen are friendly and cosmopolitan. The culture spectrum is broadly diversified. It offers something for everybody.

What’s your favourite place in Bremen?

I have many favourite places. I will show them this week as @iambremen. A must is to visit Schnoor, Böttcherstraße, Marktplatz and Bürgerpark. But also the museums like Weserburg and Kunsthalle are worth seeing.

The final Post for this week

So, the 4th week of this project comes to an end and I will hand over the @iam_bremen twitter account to the next curator @nickjans.

It was indeed a nice experience. I felt responsible for showing some more interesting sides of my beloved city. So I hope you liked what I showed you and maybe you follow my normal account @mcreim. Thanks to @carolinhinz for giving my this opportunity.

See you somewhere in Bremen.

Yours

Michael

At the “Tatort” set

Bremen is not know for being a city where many movies are filmed. So it is always nice to have the Tatort-Crew in the city. Yesterday and today the team was shooting the latest episode of the german tv serries Tatort at the Bremer Rathaus.

Since I’m Bremen this week (;-) ) I considered this a good opportunity for making some photos of the “obere Rathaushalle” which is normally used for official representation means. Now the Tatort-Crew has taken over most parts of the building which is on the list of the UNESCO World Heritage Series.

Here are some of the pictures I took today around lunch time. Most of the people in the background were there standing at the tables for about three hours. The temperature in the hall was 25 degrees. In other words it was very hot. But the team and the actors where very nice and so several other reporters and I had the chance to make some good pictures.

Flying Ar.Drone in the park

One of my hobbies is to fly quadcopters like the Parrot AR.Drone.

I have to of them. One AR.Drone 1.0 and one AR.Drone 2.0. Flying these is normally a peace of cake. You can control them via iPhone or Android. I build an RC-Remote for the 1.0 Drone. So I can use a normal RC-Controller to fly it.

This time something is wrong with the AR.Drone 1.0 so I just can fly the 2.0. A friend of mine (Sebi) joined me this evening and we just did a little bit of flying at the “Wallanlagen” which are not far away from my home. Not much wind and temperatures of about 22 degrees are perfect for that. I did some high climbing with the drone.

You can see here some of the pictures I took with the on board cam as well with my camcorder.

Top of the Bamberger

Just a few years ago the once famous Bamberger-Building was reconstructed. It now has his tower back. The “Bamberger Kaufhaus” was famous in the early years of the last century and known for having the first escalator in Germany. And the building was the highest in Bremen. And the first high rise building at all in our city.

The Bamberger was bombed during world war two and the tower has not been rebuild till the early years of the 21st century. The whole story about the building and his former owner Julius Bamberger can be found at wikipedia.

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julius_Bamberger

Nowadays the VHS public school and a supermarket are situated in the building.

The top of the Bamberger is free to the public and has a wonderful view over the city. You can reach it by elevator. Just take the 9th floor. Here are some pictures I took today:

Me at the studios of bremen vier. Famous radio station.

Good evening and a very warm moin from Bremen,

my name is Michael Reimann and in my “normal” life I work for Radio Bremen which is the public broadcast station here in our city.

You can comment everything I will write during this week to my twitter-accout:

@mcreim

Are you originally from Bremen? If not, what’s your story?

I am from Bremen. I was born on October the 15th 1966 and lived here since. With a short break while I tried to study in Berlin. That did not work out so I stayed here in this beautiful city.

What do you like most about Bremen?

Bremen is a very fine small city. What I like the most are the short ways. You don’t need a car to get around. Even my farest friend can be reached by bike. And I love the river Weser. I like sitting at the side of it and watch the ships go by.

What’s your favourite place in Bremen?

There is no place like home. Just kidding. I like the “Innenstadt” because I live and work here. I like the “Blockland” (you will hear about that later.) And I like – of course – the Weserstadion. Even if I’m not there often.

What’s your top 5 list of things to do in Bremen?

– Bike riding

– Flying (you will also hear about that later)

– Shopping (great places)

– My work (Radio Bremen)

– Going to the “Schlachte”

Who should be tweeting as @Iam_Bremen?

A friend of mine @doncish and of course @sebastianruholl und @mhollmann. I’looking forward to hear from them.

Photos, photos, photos?!

Hold on, there are many pictures to come. Right now I have to leave my mac, because the heat is to much to think and write. 🙂
