About the Book
Bremen unveils its secrets with an elegance and grace that at once belie and defy its fraught history. First mentioned by Ptolemy in 150 AD, this city is a true cultural cornucopia shaped by - and proud of - its past. Watched over by the ancient paladin Roland, the city's streets offer a feast to hungry senses and an inspiring view across the centuries.
