Wallanlagen/Stadtgraben River Loop

The Wallanlagen is a linear park alongside the Stadtgraben River, making for a terrific 5.75 km loop in Bremen.

The path starts at Theater am Goetheplatz, location of several museums, just east of Old Town. The north side path, called the contrescarpe, runs through a thin park along the Stadtgraben River, to Doventor. Just short of 3 km, it loops around to the south side, where paths pass through the Wallanlagen, a park built in the 18th century on the site of the city’s walls. There are sculptures, lovely landscaping, and a moat. There’s a path along the water and several interior paths.
