Rollos are filled and rolled up thin pancakes and a culinary invention of Bremen. You can eat the best rollos in the trendy quarter around the Viertel next to Ostertorsteinweg, for example in the Café Piano or the oriental snack house Tandour. The quarter is famous for street art, hip cafés and cult pubs such as the chilly 'Wohnzimmer'.

The historic Bremen ramparts, once part of the city fortifications, wind their way along the city centre and are a wonderful place to relax. You can have brunch at the historic Mill at the weekend. Bürgerpark and the adjoining city forestare ideal for extensive cycling and walking tours, boat trips and sunbathing. This is also where you will find Universum, which took us on an interactive trip into the world of science and inspired us.
