Worpsweder Bahnhof

Bremen & the East Frisian Coast

This Art Nouveau former railway station (1910) designed by artist and architect Heinrich Vogeler is heritage-listed for both its exterior and its Jugendstil (German Art Nouveau) interiors. Today, only the infrequent Moor Express from Bremen stops here. A restaurant inside serves German specialities for lunch and dinner (mains €11 to €19).
