Reason for Stay: Other
Where: Landside
Pros: soft benches, few sleepers, terminal empty and clean
Cons: terminal illuminated during the entire night


Comfortable, soft benches and nobody disturbing people's sleep. There aren't many benches, but there aren't many sleepers, either; also, places to sleep available only in the main building, not in the smaller Ryanair terminal. There is an information kiosk with helpful staff, where you can buy public transport tickets (it's one of the few airports which are accessible by city trams for a standard city ticket price). Wifi available without registration, but only for one hour (don't know what happens next, I simply used another device). Power sockets available everywhere. Airport very clean, but stays fully illuminated all night, so bring something to cover your eyes.

Nice and calm airport

by web-administrator (January, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by PavelIan) We were staying there couse of our early flight and we didnt want to spend money for any hotel. It was 24h open, but only one door were working, the rest was locked up, but it was not such a big problem, if you want to go to fresh air. No one was bothering us with questions like what are we doing here, stuff has no care about us and all other sleepers. In night, they even switched some lights off, so it was kind a good. Outside the airport is McDonalds (not 24/7, but you can buy some food and in the morning breakfast), but at the terminal I didnt find any non-stop. For me it was not a problem. I was pissed off, couse of there is not unlimited wi-fi connection. There is only 30min per 24 hours. But at the final, I was kind a satisfacted with this stay ;) Tip: There are comfortable massages chairs to sit.

A decent night's sleep

by Madeline Dao (February, 2015)


Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside
Pros: comfortable chairs, quiet, good security
Cons: non-existence of others, a weird children machine


I was travelling from Berlin to Bremen to catch my flight back to Gothenburg around midday on February 17th. The bus from Berlin dropped me off at Bremen at 22:00 so I just took the tram straight to BRE for an over night stay because, well, it's free. They close the doors around midnight and the security guards will be going around to check your boarding pass to make sure you are a real passenger so don't forget to print it before hand. Of course, this kind of security check makes one feel safer, but the fact that there was nobody but me in the whole airport that night was still kind of frightening, especially with the weird machine in the children play are that keeps playing a tune every 10 minutes or so. I slept on a bench right outside the Lost and Found room (which was also directly opposite the aforementioned machine) as there was an electrical socket right next to it and I needed to charge my phone. The bench was a row of 4 or 5 cushioned seating, so it was comfy to lay across it. The airport opens around 3 a.m and you can only go out after that. There is this coffee/pastry place that opens at the same time, if you need a breakfast. The other stores start their working day at around 8 or so.

A nice experience

by SC (February, 2014)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Pros: Safe(Door Locked), Soft Long Bench, Dim Light, wifi
Cons: Crazy Toy Car


I slept there for an early departure. In general, the airport is very friendly for overnight stay. The floor is clean, several long sofa benches without handlebar are in the corridor. After around 00:00, the security staff came to check boarding pass and asked if we will stay overnight.Afterward the light dim and the entrance door locked. Toilet is on -1 floor with drinkable water served (tap water). U can also buy coffee next to the entrance. wifi is available for one hour free if your phone is till active in Germany by receiving a code via sms. Only disadvantage: there is a child place very close to three benches. The toy car 'sang' a song for 10 seconds every 15 mins in whole night round. The sound is not loud but still annoying enough. If you can not stand it, better to go to the end of the corridor. In all, it was a nice experience there.

Short but calm night

by Ctsg (March, 2013)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside
Pros: Warm, comfortable seats, lights go down around midnight
Cons: At 4am the airport becomes full again and it's har do keep sleeping


After the doors close (i only got there at midnight) they only let ticket holders get in. It made me feel more secure but if you want some company you have to ask very very nicely. I found a dark and calm place but around 4am they turned on the lights and opened the doors, i couldn't sleep more because of all the people passing by. Anyway, it's a good option for an early flight like mine.

An ok night in Bremen

by totor_2 (January, 2012)


Where: Landside
Pros: Coach and WC
Cons: Security check


Quite comfy airport. If you go to the main terminal (Ryan air terminal sucks) you will find big coach without armrests. I also appreciated WC with cold and warm drinkable water. Then, you don't have to buy water. There is also a nice bar where I could watch a 1/8th final champions league and enjoy cheap beers. This airport is also close to the city. The problem is that the proximity with the airport involves security check during the night. So don't forget to printout you boarding pass because guards will ask you to prove that you're a real traveller and not homeless.

Pleasant night

by stranger (August, 2010)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside
Pros: Comfy cushioned decks
Cons: None


One of the best aiports I've ever slept. Lots of comfortable cushioned decks available, quiet, respectful security and cleanliness staff. The only wrong thing was that there weren't many shops or bars/restaurants, but if you just want to sleep, Bremen Airport was the perfect place.

Great location, compfy seating, bakery

by Daddsy (February, 2010)


Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside


Me and a friend visited Bremen to goto a gig in the venue near the town. Considering ryanair fly there it's really very close to the town centre. We maybe cut it quite fine when getting back to the airport at night, the doors seemed to get locked around 11:30. The security woman walked around with her dog until 12 checking boarding passes. There was a nice bakery near where we slept which let us eat in the evening and meant we got crossaints for breakfast. Benches in the lobby were compfy, and the lobby was very warm considering it was snowing outside. We got woken up at 5 by the early morning commuters but who can complain at that. No free wifi was annoying, especially as I'm used to getting that everywhere. Considering that by staying in the airport the flight, stay, gig, dinner and drinks was less than the train and ticket in London, id say it was pretty good. Not worth staying at the nearby hotels anyway

Tricky, but comfortable

by Airpunk (August, 2010)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside


Bremen Airport is among the favourites for backpackers in Northern Germany with the arrival of Ryanair flights some years ago. However, sleeping at Bremen Airport is not as easy as it seems. First, the Ryanair terminal (Terminal E) is closed after the last arrival and reopens at 04:00 in the morning. That is no problem, as the other three terminals (indeed, terminal 1,2 and 3 are just one building without need for sub-division) are connected with it. Seats in these terminals are very comfortable to sleep on: Well-cushioned synthetic leather, better than in Stansted (for connoisseurs...). All of them are rows of three or four without armrests, most of them are located in the middle of the building (close to the toilets and arrivals) or next to the alley connecting the main building with Terminal E. You can sleep there all night undisturbed, cleaning staff and security usually do not bother you, the latter sometimes asks for a boarding pass or a ticket. However, doors are closed between midnight and 03:00 am. This means, that you are not allowed to leave the building for a cigarette break and that you can not enter the building, if you arrive after midnight. However, if you arrive after midnight, I have following tip for you: Ring the bell of the German Border Police (Bundespolizei). They are located in the right corner of Terminal 1 (close to the Ryanair terminal). Chances are good that they let you in, especially if you arrive in a large group. If you are a single traveller, there are still chances, although they may be annoyed and tell you to get lost - so join forces. All you need is to prove that you are flying on the next day (ticket, booking confirmation or boardi continued >>

Nice and safe, again!

by kankka (January, 2010)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside


I had already spent two nights before in this airport, in July 2009. Already then I was happily suprised by the nice and quiet atmosphere. This was my third time sleeping in there, so I might say that I'm a kind of an expert ;) - after showing your flight ticket for next day the nice guard man and his cute dog allow you to sleep peacefully through the night - In the summer the airport is more lively and more people and flights landing. In winter the place was empty all night long (expect all the other travellers sleeping peacefully around) - Safe and quiet places to sleep all around, benches without armrests. - And the city center is about 20 minutes walk away, 5 minutes with tram! (which you can ride free if you dare, I've done that several times and never got caught) During visiting the city you can leave your stuff in lockers in the airport. Done that, easy and funny way to spent time! - You might need ear plugs, if your sensitive to noises. The nice dog barks sometimes loudly! Lights go off in the night, luckily. - I recommend this airport, I'ts the best in my opinion.

Wonderful nap to remeber

by himbeerstee (December, 2009)


Reason for Stay: No Money
Where: Landside


Due to the weather changing all the time and a serious treat of the bus being cancelled again I decided to go to Bremen one day earlier and enjoy the Christmas market. Then, as I spend most of my money on wonderfully delighting nothings like at the market, I was out of money for accommodation, and headed to the airport. Bremen is truly a 'City Airport'. 10 minutes with tram number 6 and you are there, in front of the terminals. There are officially 4 of them - 2 for departures, one for arrivals located between the two for departures, and additionally, n 'E' terminal, located on the right side of the main terminals. This one serves only the Ryanair flights. The currency covert kiosk is at this terminal, as well as a few very uncomfortable moveable chairs. There is a warm connection to the main building of the airport. At the main body of the airport, which consists of the aforementioned three terminals one can indeed sleep quite comfortably. It is not very quiet, but it is not busy either. I slept nearby the historical air plane exposition in the right wing, and it was very pleasant. The seats are comfortable to lie on and there are plenty of them. I was there on 23/24th Dec night, so it might have been more quiet than usual, as no cafe or shop worked; it is probably quite noisier at other times, as some shops work 24/7. Around midnight, when the last flight have left/arrived and the last tram was long gone (23:1* from the central railway station) a man came to check our tickets (something about having a ticket for tomorrow) and he said that they are locking the airport. Afterwards it got as quiet as a tomb until about half past four. But then, many of the sleeping peop continued >>

Clean, nice and felt safe

by gagan (August, 2008)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside


We decided to stay at the airport since our boarding for Ryanair would start at 04:30. The Terminal E for Ryanair had basically no facilities. But the main terminal is just next to it and we managed to have a decent sleep over there. There were seats adjacent and without armrests. So no problem to lie down on those. Around 12, some guy came with a dog and asked for tickets. We showed the print-out, and he wished us goodnight with a smile. There was a icecream place. I took two scoops, 80 cents each. I think it shut down at 11 pm. Toilet was clean. Airport felt safe. I found couple of other guys walking and trying to take a nap here and there. At 4 o'clock the airport seemed to become fully alive with lots of passengers.

Clean and cosy

by andi (June, 2008)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside


This was quite a pleasant airport to sleep in. Just go to the main terminal and not the Ryanair Terminal , which is next door. Actually, I think the Ryanair Terminal is closed during the night, and there are no seats or other amenities anyway. In the main terminal there are many cushioned seats in the rows of 3, so just the right size for stretching out for a comfortable sleep. Around 11 pm or a bit later a security guard will come to ask for your ticket. I had only the confirmation number and the time of departure written down on a piece of paper, and it sufficed. After that I (and several other people) had an undisturbed sleep till around 5 am, when the airport started to fill in with passengers.

My first airport overnight

by adamk (May, 2008)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside


This was my first sleeping at an airport, so i have no comparison. Since my Ryanair flight departed 06:15, we decided not to pay for a third night in the hotel, instead go to the airport the night before. Ryanair terminal was just about to close when we arrived to Bremen Airport (around 11 PM), i took a quick look at it: it's not possible to sleep there with all those chairs. Instead, we went to the main terminal building and found two other couples already sleeping on the first floor. The benches are 3-4 comfortable chairs screwed to each other without armrests, so we turned two of these next to each other and went to sleep. The lights are on during the night, and there were several strange noises (some bells, cartoons sounds - maybe there was a TV on somewhere?). But i was so tired, these did not bother me, but i can imagine that one can't sleep because these noises. Around 00:30 a security-type women with a dog walked by and asked for our flight confirmation. Once she saw that we had an early flight, she wished us a good night and went along. I was expecting worse, this wasn't a bad night after all.
