Don't know, something about Bremen just didn't connect with us. The Altstadt is well preserved and has lots of twisty streets but it could have been just about anywhere.

This was our 1st visit back to my parents home town and we where just amazed at the history and the famous Roland and Bremer Stadtmusikanten. We spent a couple of days just looking around within the old part of town and going through the little shops.

There isn't a whole lot to do in Bremen, so this was a nice hangout spot. As a traveler you will most likely be in old town anyways, so it doesn't take much of an effort

Walk through the lovely Bremen's Altstadt, and marvel at the lovely old houses, cobbled streets, Bremer Stadtmusikanten and the Roland. All quite closely together, with lots of shops around as well.

Really pleasant experience offering a variety of restaurants, churches, museums, shops etc. We visited on a bitterly cold day so weren't able to enjoy the walk around as much as we would have hoped.

On the weekend especially on Saturday the market place was cramped and hard to get through. The people get rough sometimes and it is not really a pleasant experience. On all other days, it is so much more fun, to see the stands and the historic buildings are splendor. The city hall dominates the place and the figurine with the... More

The Old Town is a wonderful area which is easily reached from all parts of Bremen. The highlights are Marktplatz and Böttcherstraße. This visit coincided with Advent so the atmosphere was very festive. Having visited before, this was great. However, a first time visitor interested in the architecture might be a bit frustrated because thee is no real opportunity simply... More

One of the biggest Christmas markets of Germany are located in the historical quarter of Bremen ( stop Domscheide) surrounded by landmarks like Rathaus, Dom and trade chamber building. Together they build a harmonical urban texture which is unique even in Germany. I visited the place several times during my stay enjoyed it very much. It is the main reason... More

The historical center of the city is relatively small but very nice. It has a pleasant relaxing atmosphere and offers lots of things to see as well as a reasonable variety of places to eat. Enjoyed our visit :)
