We now know where Germany’s oldest cask wine (a Rüdesheimer, vintage 1653) is stored, who was the inspiration for the world-famous novel character Robinson Crusoe and how big the gilded bronze relief of “Der Lichtbringer” is.
We learned this and much more at our teambuilding event in Bremen. Divided into teams, we explored Bremen’s city centre in an exciting tablet scavenger hunt by Meet the World. At the last stop, the culinary conclusion of a thoroughly successful day awaited us.
Of course, we don’t want to keep our newly acquired knowledge just for ourselves:
1.) In the Ratskeller under the town hall, a Chinese billionaire offered a whopping 150,000 euros for a (!) bottle bottled from this barrel.
2) Son of a Bremen merchant who once emigrated to York in northern England and whose actual surname ‘Kreuznaer’ was changed to ‘Crusoe’ there.
3) The artwork measures 383 × 383 cm and hangs above the entrance to Böttcherstraße.
