Bremen Airport Guide
In this section you will find traveller airport reviews as well as our Bremen Airport Guide with info on WiFi, lounges, facilities and services....and yes, even the names of some airport hotels in case you decide that sleeping in the airport is not for you!
I was happily surprised by the nice and quiet atmosphere.
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Bremen Airport.
What to Expect
- A clean and modern airport, easily accessible by public transportation. The airport consists of two buildings: the larger Main Terminal (currently split into three sections) and a much smaller terminal used only for Ryanair flights. A small variety of shops and restaurants are available, along with one 24-hour snack shop.
- Free WiFi is available. See WiFi in the airport guide below.
- Plenty of power outlets readily available throughout the airport
Where to Sleep
- Many overnighters stay for early flight departures
- After Midnight, the airport’s doors are locked, and only travelers with valid tickets for onward flights will be allowed to stay inside.
- Overall, travelers describe this airport as a safe and comfortable place to sleep. The airport is very accommodating to overnight guests. Airport staff and security are quiet and discreet, dimming the lights in some areas and turning off overhead announcements.
- Although no specific spot was mentioned, there is no room for sleeping in the smaller Ryanair terminal, so the Main Terminal will be the place to look for a spot to sleep. There are padded armrest-free benches and some auto-pay massage chairs throughout the terminal, but the floor is usually clean and can be comfortable to sleep on if you have a travel mat or sleeping bag.
- Some reviewers complained of bright lights and annoying music that played repetitively all night from a Child’s play area. Have a sleep mask and some earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones handy to ensure a good night’s sleep!
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
Good to Know
- Economy class passengers can pay to enter the airport’s comfortable VIP lounge. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for locations and rates.
