Six meters below the ground: Tour of Bremen’s Ratskeller

Just as old as the Town Hall, but covering a much bigger area, Bremen’s Ratskeller houses the world’s largest assortment of German wines. Even today Bremen citizens seal a deal with a toast here or use the rooms for banquets. After our tour through the wine cellar and the underground storage rooms, you will know what Priölken are, where the Bacchus and Rose Cellar got their names and what connects the fairy tale poet Wilhelm Hauff to the Ratskeller. At the end of the tour, we can take a peek into the Treasure Chamber and taste a small glass of wine.
