Are you under 18 or do you have children under 18? Then we have something for you!

The successful FreiKarte model goes into the next round!

The state of Bremen is once again giving all children and young people with their first place of residence in Bremen and Bremerhaven a credit card with 60 euros for 2024 and automatically a new 60 euros for 2025.

Because: The exclusion of children and young people from social life during the pandemic is still having an impact. The free card for children and young people has substantially improved self-determined social participation in leisure, culture and sports activities and has lifted children and young people out of social isolation. In particular, it has opened up activities to children and young people from financially disadvantaged families that would otherwise have remained closed to them. It thus makes an important contribution to their personal development and helps them to cope with the social, emotional and physical stress caused by the pandemic.

With the FreiKarte, children and young people with their primary residence in the state of Bremen can pay for admission to participating leisure facilities - such as cinemas, swimming pools, theaters, bouldering halls, laser tag arenas and many more - and in some cases also for food/drinks or the necessary equipment. The costs for accompanying persons can also be settled via the card, but only in connection with purchases for the person to whom the card belongs.

A list of participating facilities can be found on the FreiKarte website (

The direct link to the website can be found under "Further information".

To get started, the FreiKarte must be activated once. This can be done via the website, by calling the citizens' hotline on 0421 361-0 or via the new FreiKarte app.


Only those who

  • are under 18 years of age and
  • have their primary residence in Bremen or Bremerhaven.

The card is sent out automatically and does not need to be applied for.
