We went to Germany and stayed a week in Bremen. The annual Weinachtsmarkt (Christmas Market) was in full swing and being centered in the heart of the old city made for a romantic getaway for my wife and me. We ate the BEST fresh foods, and I enjoyed the seasonal atmosphere that really got me in the mood for Christmas... More

This is one of the more interesting weinachtmarkts I've visited. Be sure to combine it with Schnoor, shopping and rubbing the donkey for good luck at the statue of the town musiscians.

Great Christmas market In Bremen! I've never come when it wasn't a Christmas market so I don't know what it looks like during any other time. Tons of food stalls, each selling its own version of sausages and other meats. Also, tons of little shops selling this and that... The market does a great job capturing Christmas!

Well, Germany is famous for its weihnachtsmarkten but I was so amazed to attend the best Christmas market in Europe. To be honest, because of the enormous number of the shops, the beauty of the old town could not be entirely sensed, but it still worths to stroll along the gingeerbread hearts, gluhwein and egg punch.

Next to each other, including this site are magnificent buildings and structures that leaves one speechless. The beautiful edifices make up for Bremen's small size. I would recommend visitors (if they had control of the timing of their visits) not to come towards the end of November until 3rd week of December as the square will be full of stalls... More

Despite the city has not a big old town (due to War times) it's very beautiful! Must see: Marktplatz, Shnoor area and Böttcherstrasse.

It is a beautiful stroll, and easy to find as well. The architecture is quite lovely, and close enough to the rest of the city to avoid high priced restaurants (which are not the focus of this district, but the history and stories)
