You can also check your route with Google or the VBN Fahrplaner (website or App).

  • By bicycle or on foot

The Schuppen Eins is 3,1 km northwest of Bremen’s historic city centre. You can take the scenic route almost all the way on the promenade along the Weser River. Just keep going due downstream until you reach the former Kellogg’s factory area, turn onto “Auf der Muggenburg” and cut through to the Europahafen to reach the venue from the side of the harbour basin. (Plan a little extra time for taking one or two wrong turns…it’s the best way to get to know a city!)

Please bring your proof of vaccination, recovery or negative Covid-19 test and be prepared to show it upon request.

We also encourage the wearing of FFP2 masks when a distance of 1,5 metres cannot be maintained.

We will keep you updated on any changes in the Covid-19 restrictions that may apply to the venue leading up to the event.

The rules for travelling to Germany from abroad are always up-to-date here: Germany – EU Covid travel rules.

It is our mission to have a low- and no-waste event. We will avoid plastics, unnecessary print materials and encourage all of our speakers and exhibitors to do so as well.
