Bremen is Germany's smallest state. Two distinct enclaves form the state of Bremen. One is Bremen the state capital, and the other is Bremerhaven the city. Bremen is known for its rich cultural life with many theatres, libraries, archives, museums, and galleries.
The Borgfelder Wümmewiesen is a nature reserve in the districts of Borgfeld and Oberneuland in the municipality of Bremen. It is around 688 hectares. The nature reserve registered in the nature reserve book of the city of Bremen under number 7 is the largest nature reserve in the city and the second-largest in the country. The nature reserve is largely part of the same-named, almost 682 hectare EU bird sanctuary.
The historic bank promenade on the Weser in Bremen's old town is called Schlachte. In the official sense, the Schlachte is a street parallel to the bank that begins at the corner of Erste Schlachtpforte and ends about 660 meters further north-west at the Bremen Youth Hostel at the corner of Kalkstraße. The Schlachte, originally Bremen's harbor square, has now transformed into a mile for restaurants and beer gardens.
Hollerland originally referred to a cultural landscape in the north and east of Bremen, which was made arable by Dutch settlers in the 12th century. Due to the construction of extensive suburban settlements, especially since the 1960s, only remnants of the original cultural landscape reclaimed by the Dutch have been preserved. Today one only calls the one in the Horn-Lehe district and nature reserve designated part as Hollerland.
