Some Bremen/Bremerhaven to Baltimore passenger lists, especially in the
1833-1866 time frame, will have the last place of residence (town name)
for the passengers. You generally won't know this unless you view the
microfilmed passenger list. Although sometimes this bit of information
is also given in the Germans to America listing. In my opinion it is
always good to obtain a microfilmed copy of the passenger list to
confirm the information in the index listing and to see what other clues
might be given about your ancestor's voyage. It's also just kind of a
nice record to have.
You will also be able to see the names of the non-German immigrants on
the passenger list (if any). Germans to America only lists the Germans.
Good luck with your search.
