Bremen is a city in the north of Germany. Bremen is the smallest of the three German City states. It consists of two seperated enclaves: The city of Bremen and the city of Bremerhaven.

Bremen has direct motorway connections to Hamburg, Hannover, Münster, Osnabrück, Dortmund, the northern sea and the Netherlands.

Car number plates starting with the letter HB are registered in this locality. HB stands for Hansestadt Bremen.

Hitchhiking out

From the airport it's fairly easy to get a lift to major Dutch cities to the south-west, via the A1 motorway (use a sign with 'A1'), or to Groningen via Oldenburg (Oldenburg) to the west. The best place to stand is at the exit to the long-stay car parks, making sure you can see the number plates of cars where they pause to exit. (Cars with yellow and black plates are likely to be heading to the Netherlands, and German cars tell you where they are from by the first two or three letters on them.)

Furthermore try to place yourself at "Neuenlander Straße" out- or inbound. Outbound you will get to the motorway (as describes above), inbound you can easily get into town. To Neulander Strasse one can easily get by tram 6 (Flughafen) or 6E (~ 5 stops from the center).
