It's worth to spend some time in the narrow streets on Schnoor. Schnoor is the oldest part of Altstadt and really very lovely. i think that the narrowest streets are no more than 70 cm wide.

Someone once said that the old german town centers are alike. Not true. For example that of Bremen has notably houses build of red brick. Very interesting feature that gives a rather unique look for the old center. Also the combination, whether by choice or by need no matter, to combine more modern stuff, like trams, to the ancient churches... More

Very pretty city. The details of the old buildings are exquisit. Plenty of places to grab a coffee and slice of cake. Clean and not to crowded

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.
