Arrival at the Bremen Airport
In front of the airport there is a tramway station. At the station there is a ticket vending machine: you need the ticket „Preisstufe / Price level F” (9,10 €) which covers the whole journey to Oldenburg (valid for the tramway in Bremen, regional trains between Bremen and Oldenburg as well as for the buses in Oldenburg). Attention: the ticket must be validated before you enter the tramway (there is a validator at the tramway station). Learn more abour regional transport around Bremen and Oldenburg at https://www.vbn.de (note that the tickets can also be bought online: https://www.vbn.de/en/tickets/ticket-offer).
Take the tramway and go to the central station of Bremen (Hauptbahnhof), it takes ca. 15 minutes. From there, take a train to „Oldenburg (Oldb)”. With the ticket „F” you may use all regional (RE, RB, NWB, IC) trains but not the ICE-trains (note for Germans: IC-trains between Bremen and Oldenburg are considered as regional trains due to a special local agreement). During the day there are usually two regional trains per hour, and the trip to Oldenburg takes 30-40 minutes. Check the timetable at https://www.bahn.com/en (type: from „Bremen Hbf” to „Oldenburg (Oldb) Hbf”).
After you arrive to Oldenburg, in most cases you can simply walk to your hotel (the hotels Sprenz, B&B, qpartments are within 700 m from the train station). If you decide to take the bus: all buses in Oldenburg stop at the central bus station, which is just on the north side of the central train station.
