What do you like most about Bremen?
Bremen it’s not a big city – but a large city – or vice versa. It’s possible to get your things done using bicylce and public transport. (i used to work as a cab driver 25 years ago – so i’m bored using a car). And we have a few high-rise buildings – #ilike.

Blockland. A perfect place to ride a bike.
