The first part of the Social Event will take place at the Universum Bremen. The Universum Bremen is a Science Center that offers over 300 exhibits to discover
the world of science and engineering. The visitors can test and try out scientific phenomena with hands-on exhibits in three different theme sectors (human being,
technology and nature).
A foreign-language guided tour that takes you to the highlights of Bremen's historical city centre. Many of these are concentrated on the market square, the focal
point of the city and undoubtedly one of the prettiest squares in Germany. Of particular note are the magnificent town hall and the stone statue of Roland, which
were jointly accorded UNESCO World Heritage status in June 2004, and the sculpture of the Bremen Town Musicians from the Brothers Grimm fairytale. Your guided
walk also takes in the picturesque Schnoor quarter, the oldest part of Bremen that is still intact today. Its rambling lanes, where fishermen, artisans and sailors
once lived, are now home to delightful cafés, inns and taverns, top-notch restaurants and all manner of handicrafts.
The third part of the Social Event consists of a dinner in the historical Bremer Ratskeller. The Ratskeller is part of the UNESCO world heritage and one of the oldest
and most renowned restaurants in Germany. The historical building offers a large wine cellar as well as different halls such as the Bacchuskeller where the dinner
will take place.
The three courses of the dinner will be introduced by a musical ("Nachts in Bremen") which takes the guests on a fascinating journey through the history of Bremen (some parts
of the musical will be held in German). Further musical background will be provided by a music ensemble.
