The Senate of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen (German: Senat der Freien Hansestadt Bremen) is the government of the German city-state Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. The senate has existed since medieval times. The senate is headed by a President, who also holds the title of Mayor. The President's deputy also holds the title Mayor. The position of President of the Senate corresponds to the position of Prime Minister in most other states of Germany, while the senators are cabinet members similarly to ministers in other states.

Since 2005, Jens Böhrnsen has served as President of the Senate and Mayor.
