Below is our collection of tidbits, odds 'n ends for Bremen.

This page contains two sections:

How Far From Bremen to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Bremen to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Bremen to:

  • Cullman [Map], which is the Seat of Cullman County, lies 14 miles [22.5 km] to the North Northeast. If you could walk a straight line from Bremen to Cullman, with an average speed<2> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take most of a day to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take four to five hours.
  • Montgomery [Map], which is the State Capital of Alabama, lies 120 miles [193.1 km] to the South Southeast (SSE). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take about two hours, a buggy would take 5 days and walking would take 7 days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 646 miles [1,039.6 km] to the Northeast (NE). Driving would take just over a day, a buggy would take 26 days and walking would take 37 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,536 miles [10,518.7 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<4>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba [Map]) is 7,247 miles [11,662.9 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<5>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican [Map]) is 5,123 miles [8,244.7 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<6>

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance that starts in Bremen. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Bremen) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Bremen. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Bremen

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bremen. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.9945, Longitude: -86.9700     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Bremen have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<2>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

- Return to Citation

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Bremen to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

- Return to Citation

<4>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Jerusalem is 313.806 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<5>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 309.503 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 310.262 degrees.
