Bræmer started his professional career with AaB Aalborg (AaB) in the top-flight Danish Superliga. He got his first try at senior football, when he spent the 2002–03 season on loan at Hjørring IF. The loan was a success, and having returned to AaB, Bræmer got his Superliga debut in August 2003. In December 2003, he prolonged his AaB contract until December 2005. He played seven games in his debut season for AaB, before signing a loan deal with Superliga rivals Silkeborg IF for the first half of the 2004–05 Superliga season. He played 12 of 15 games for Silkeborg and scored one goal in his last game for the club.
Back at AaB, Bræmer took over from forward David Nielsen, and got his national breakthrough. In seven games from May to June 2005, Bræmer scored 11 goals and helped the club finish in fourth place of the 2004–05 Superliga. He was the seventh highest goalscorer of that Superliga season. In late June 2005, Bræmer signed a three-year extension of his AaB contract. Bræmer did not have an equally successful 2005–06 Superliga season, scoring eight goals.
He was dropped from the starting line-up by AaB manager Erik Hamrén during the 2006–07 Superliga season, with Swedish international forward Rade Prica taking his place. When AaB bought Brazilian forward José Mota in January 2007, Bræmer announced his desire to leave AaB. On 29 December 2008 he left Aalborg and moved to Akademisk Boldklub. On 13 July 2010 and the end of his contract left Akademisk Boldklub.
In the fall of 2010 he played for Viborg FF, however after a disappointing half season with the club, he left to play for league rivals Hvidovre IF in the spring. At Hvidovre he played some of the best football since he left AaB, according to himself, scoring 4 goals in 14 matches in the process.
He has played 12 games and scored one goal for various Danish youth national selections, most recently the Denmark national under-21 football team. He was called up for the Danish under-21 national team in June 2005. He made his debut under-21 against the Finland u-21s.
