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.

We thought it'd be way too crowded and busy.It wasn't. We managed to take all photos we wanted and explore all the market stalls, buy fresh-squeezed orange juice and visit the main attractions. Definitely would recommend to buy gingerbread hearts when you spot them. They are delicious!

The Altstadt in Bremen is small but very beautiful. Very calm atmosphere, lots of outdoor places to eat and drink. Always lots going on, and you can head down to the river side to enjoy the beer gardens there. Everywhere in the city is within easy reach if you don't stay in the Old Town itself.

This corner is a must to see area, it is better to go to the Rathaus tour, it is really worth it. The dom is also built for like 1000 years ago. It makes me feel that I am in Italy..

Very cute town center. Make sure you walk to all the narrow little streets leading from the square. There are some very cute shops and watering holes around. Make sure you stop for lunch at the Rathouse for some great herring and a lot of history.
