Our Towns (3) -> Syke

Syke is a nice small town near Bremen in the North of Germany. Together with the surrounding villages it has 24,401 inhabitants. 
We call it the “lively town in the green”.

There is one main street, formerly the only road connection between the cities of Bremen and Hanover, so Syke town alongside this road is almost 1000 years old. Now the main street is a quite shopping street with a food market on Saturdays. Syke has even got a cinema.



If you want to enjoy nature and history, you can go for long walks in the large forests surrounding the town or to the “Kreismuseum” with many exhibits from Syke’s past and where many projects for students and special crafts fairs take place.

From Syke you can communicate in 17 minutes by train to the centre of Bremen, and there you can have a lot of fun. Syke is twinned with La-Chartre in France and Warzesno (near Torun) in Poland.

Syke’s symbol is the bear, also its paw in the crest.

Curiously, Syke has gained national fame because the fire-brigade’s station burnt down twice within a few years.
