Haus der Bürgerschaft

The citizens of Bremen first had to get used to the unique architecture and aesthetics of the Haus der Bürgerschaft. However, the building has been classified as a historical monument. Now it is where the heart of Bremen’s politics beats. At the Univention Summit you get the chance to deepen and discuss topics of the expert talks in a small circle, in the rooms where the fractions of the Bremen Senate normally meet.
