Really there is not much to prepare for at tour of Bremen. The city is well planned and layer out. Just head downtown and park your car and stroll around. The layout of the city makes it so that everything is within walking distance, and almost all interesting things are for free in closeness to each other.

The historical old town is very nice, cute, and give you more than one look to this town... When you stop for the lunch, dinner or just drink a coffie, you can feel the magic from this place ... We erally love this town, and hope, we will be back soon - for a longer time to see and enjoy... More

I visited Bremen as a day trip, and I absolutely loved it. The Altstadt is definitely one of the highlights, with its beautiful old buildings and many cafés in the square. I'd recommend stopping for lunch or a coffee to fully appreciate the beauty of the architecture, and the historical atmosphere.

Great place for a stroll with many very narrow, presumably medieval streets. Also a large selection of restaurants, many of which appear to be very traditional based upon the garb of their greeters. There are also many interesting shops some of whose products are not made in China. Well worth the visit for a few hrs in Bremen.

We found Bremen excellent for a good walk with something different around the corners.....the Market sold lovely flowers from a Dutch Grower at extremely good value prices. Bottcher Strasse is a must, where We watched the Meissen Porcelain Bells ring at mid day

Bremen is beautiful, clean and friendly. There are a lot of statues, fountains and beautiful parks. The river is an extra. A GOOD PLACE TO BE.

A couple of times in Bremen and each time we craved to walk through it. The old city is a lovely part of Bremen and arguably the most attractive part. Start at the old Market Square, look around at all the historic buildings and monuments then visit the nooks of Bottcher strasse. You could also go all the way to... More

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.
