From Bremen's airport you can reach the city centre with the House of Science via the stop "Domsheide" and the central station conveniently by tram 6.
A 15 minute walk takes you from the central station to the venue.
Public transportation by tram is convenient. Tickets can be bought on the tram or bus paying cash. A day ticket only pays off after four journeys or if travelling in a group. For short trips of up to a maximum of three stops, make sure to get "Kurzstrecke" at a discount.
As a maritime town, fish is a prominent part on Bremen menues. Knipp (pork sausage with grains) and Labskaus (potatoes, beef and beetroot) are two traditional Bremen dishes. You will find them at Schüttinger and other restaurants around the market square. Make sure to try German bread from the numerous bakeries in the city. For bars and cafes, visit "Viertel" - a twenty minute walk from the venue or trams 2 and 3 to "Sielwall".
It is helpful to have a few Euros in your pockets. In Germany, people pay mostly cash although debit and credit cards are widely accepted (not always for small amounts though). ATMs can be found at the post office "Domsheide" and banks at "Domshof".
The main shopping area is situated around Obernstraße in the pedestrian zone around the venue. You can find department stores as well as shops for clothes, jewelry and electronics (inside Galeria Kaufhof department store). Note that all shops are closed on Sunday and some shops might close before 8pm on Saturday.
