BRE Airport Overview

bremen airport guideTo help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Bremen Airport.

What to Expect

Bremen Airport (code: BRE) is divided into a main terminal (divided into with Terminals 1, 2, and 3), and a separate building for Terminal E, which houses low-cost carriers. Most amenities are located in the main terminal, including several shops and eateries, plus a 24 hour Kamps Bakery on the landside. Free WiFi is available to help pass the time. Economy class passengers can pay to enter two airport lounges. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for locations and rates.

Sleeping in Bremen Airport

Overnight campers seem to have little problem spending the night here, as long as you’re inside the main terminal before 12:00AM.  After Midnight, the airport’s doors are locked, and only travellers with valid tickets for onward flights will be allowed to stay inside.  Do expect security guards to check your ID and boarding pass.  Sofa-like, armrest-free benches are located in some hallways.  Other spots of note, 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, hotels are nearby. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.
