This is the only interesting part in Bremen, from my view. Many really old buildings, the cathedral and don´t miss the Bleikeller (lead chamber)! Prices quite high in the old city´s restaurants and shops but you get the same just round the corner much cheaper.

Beautiful place to chill or stroll around. With restaurants, churches, museums,the Rathaus and Roland standing tall, what is there not to like? Will happily return soon :)

Plenty of old buildings to studdy, along the way there is a lot of shops, bars and restaurants. Beautiful arcitecture. Recomend to walk in the area, not as bad as in many other places with tourist traps. At least they are better "hidden" :-) Take your time, have a bite or something to drink.... Enjoy.

Bremen old town is definitely worth seeing. Apart from the obligatory Bremer Musicians (one of the Grimms tales about a donkey, dog, cat and cockerel) statue, there are lots of lovely little shops, as well as many larger ones. The smaller ones offer all sorts of interesting things that you might not normally find. The architecture is worth seeing as... More

the quality of the building exteriors and the compactness of the area made for a very pleasant short walk around with 1 - 2 hrs enough to see the highlights

A few advices to visit the city: you can easily visit the City of Bremen in 3 days (flights included): there isnt' much to visit apart from the city center. It's an industrial city with a nice ancient city center. We stayed at the Radisson Blue which is just 100 mt from the town square. Everything turns around the townsquare.... More

Bremen was a last-minute addition to our road trip across the north of Germany. After having really enjoyed Hannover and Hamburg, we arrived in Bremen with low expectations. We were pleasantly surprised! At the heart of Bremen's charm is its Altstadt. It is extremely charming! Beautiful squares littered with little fountains and sculptures, the town hall, the cathedral - it... More

I was switching around my itinerary quite a bit before deciding on Bremen as one of the towns I would visit during my tour through northern Germany. I am glad I added it last minute, because it is absolutely charming. The old town area is easily accessible from the train station and elsewhere. You barely need a map, just follow... More
