Bremen entered the final day in the playoff spot, a point behind Frankfurt, and knowing victory would ensure their survival.
The visitors had looked to be safe until the 88th minute, when Chelsea loanee Papy Djilobodji diverted the ball home following a free kick amid suggestions of offside.
The goal was allowed to stand and gave Bremen a 1-0 win that saw them to safety.
Stuttgart suffered their first relegation in 41 years after a 3-1 defeat at Wolfsburg.
Stuttgart, the 2007 Bundesliga champions, had needed a win at the Volkswagen Arena to have any hope of survival but had been in wretched form, taking just one point from their previous seven games.
Maximilian Arnold and Andre Schurrle struck in the opening 29 minutes for Wolfsburg, whose European qualification hopes were already over, to leave Jurgen Kramny’s men with a mountain to climb in the second half.
