What could I do in the leisure time?

There is plenty to see and to do in the historic city centre with its sights, lively pub and restaurant scene, extensive parks and recreation areas, attractive destinations for days out in the surrounding area.
Bremen can justifiably claim to be a city of culture. Avant-garde and Old Masters, large-scale theatre and drama workshops, classical concerts and contemporary sounds, tradition and provocation, established customs and delight in experimentation are all represented here. Bremen's theatres, museums, concert halls and art collections offer an inexhaustible diversity with regard to both the artistic spectrum they cover and the cultural events they put on. Bremen residents are sports fans.
More than 160.000 citizens are members of over 130 clubs - and that's not counting the pub football teams, the informal "kick-abouts", subscribers to sport and fitness clubs and a vast army of joggers. Sport is in - not only in its active form, but equally as a spectator pastime, enjoyed by fans at outstanding sporting events. Bremen's chock-full sporting calendar, crammed with top-class events, gives abundant opportunity for watching sport.
