This is *the* attraction in Bremen, with several of the sites located around it. The beautiful Rathaus, the Roland statue, the Cathedral and more. There are many cafés with outdoor seating on the square which, while the food is not the most exciting, offer an unparalleled view of the goings-on. A must-see in Bremen!

Its a really beautiful city and worth a trip, only if you want to see it all in one day you have to schedule more than 5 hours to see it all

This area is in the heart of Bremen and is definitely worth the stop. Amazing buildings and history in this area. I was there in December and was able to enjoy the Christmas Market. This time of year was amazing and I would highly recommend going for the market. From great food and drinks to souvenirs and goods, this area... More

This is so picturesque. I have been in Bremen for 2 plus weeks in April, and another 2 plus weeks in June. I have walked around this place in the morning, day and night. I have seen it on foot, on tram and on bicycle. And if I go back to Bremen, I will jolly well make my way there... More

Shopping in the historical city centre of Bremen is an experience in its own right. The streets are lined with high-end retail outlets, cafés and bars. If you look up, you'll also see a multitude of impressive gables. Some of the buildings here are Bremen merchants' houses whose ground floors have been modernised, but whose upper floors still feature the... More

Not quite up there with the Old Towns of cities like Tallinn or Stockholm, perhaps, but still charming and with plenty to see (and photograph). Great weekend markets and specialty stores, in both the centre of the town and the true Old Town part of it.

i liked the statue, blends in With the hanseatic designd square. Its most certainly not a masterpiece so dont expect italian da vinci. The statue is one of the many in different cities i Germany and this one is supposed to be the tallest of all of them.

When in Bremen, the Alstadt or "Old City" is a must see. Take and hour or two to wander the streets, visit the cafes or restaraunts ar take in the wonderful history of one of Germany's, oldest "Free Cities". As one of Germanys oldest Ports of Trade, this was a commercially viable and busy city, as far back as the... More
