Bremen Cathedral

dedicated to St. Peter, is a church situated in the market square in the center of Bremen, in northern Germany. The cathedral belongs to the Bremian Evangelical Church, a member of the Protestant umbrella organisation named Evangelical Church in Germany. It is the proto-cathedral of the former Prince-Archbishopric of Bremen.

The first church structure that can be verified on the site of St Peter's Cathedral in Bremen was a timber church on on a high point overseeing the Weser River built by Saint Willehad, an early missionary to the Frisians. The church was built about 789 in conjunction with the creation of the Diocese of Bremen with Willehad as the first bishop. Willehad died the same year.

The park itself began in 1933 at the initiative of the German Rhododendron Society on former farmland and forest, opening to the public in 1937. Its Botanika facility, described as Germany's largest nature center, opened in 2003. In 2007 ownership of the park was transferred to a nonprofit foundation.

The Weser Tower is a multistoried building in Bremen, designed by the US-American architect of German origin Helmut Jahn. The laying of the foundation was on 23 October 2007. The Tower of 82 meters height is the tallest office building of Bremen and was completed in 2010.

The 22 floors of the building have a surface of 18,000 square meters and thus place for 800 jobs. Among this large-scale project rank also a new hotel, a Varieté theatre, restaurants and further office buildings. Principal tenant are subsidiary companies of the power supplier EWE AG, which takes over altogether 13 floors of the building.

Bremen Arena

The Bremen-Arena (previously known as AWD-Dome and Stadthalle Bremen) is the largest indoor arena in Bremen, Germany. It is used for concerts, sports, and trade fairs. It used to be called Stadthalle Bremen until the financial services provider Allgemeiner Wirtschaftsdienst (AWD) bought the naming rights in January 2005. Contrary to what the new name suggest, the AWD-Dome is in fact not a dome. The name dome was probably chosen because an AWD-Arena already exists in Hannover. At the same time € 50 million were invested into the venue to modernize and expand it from 3,500 to 14,500 seats. The architect Thomas Klumpp led these renovations. When AWD withdrew its sponsorship at the end of 2009, the venue was renamed to Bremen-Arena[2], effective 1 January 2010.
