Every October, Bremen celebrates the Freimarkt! For 17 days "Ischa Freimaak" takes over the Bürgerweide and the city centre. From 14th October to 30th October, the town enjoy with its fair with a giant Ferris Wheel, games, rides, haunted house, ponies, roasted almonds, or a sociable evening in a beer-tent – the Freimarkt surely has something for everyone.
Smells and Lights are attracting
The Freimarkt has been drawing huge crowds for years now, as the film from the 1960s from the Landesfilmarchiv shows. But Bremen’s fifth season is much older than that – almost 1,000 years old. The first Freimarkt was held in 1035 – making it one of Germany’s oldest fairs. Initially, the Freimarkt was held in Bremen’s historic market square and was a trading market, where farmers, handcraftsmen and tradesmen offered their wares. At today’s Freimarkt you can visit the "Marktdöflein" (little village market) where smithies, masons, and jesters demonstrate what once could be found at the Freimarkt.
