The square has a lovely relaxed feel, surrounded by magnificent old buildings; a great spot to visit for history buffs or for those seeking cultural immersion. Many cafe options too!

A stroll along the the cobble streets of the Marktplatz provides a struggle to tourists and residents alike, but the intricate details of the old architecture is a sight for sore eyes and feet. The Marktplatz opens up to old government buildings, a church, banks, and bars and restaurants. You will know you have arrived when after alighting the strassenbahn,... More

This is a working market. Great place to buy picnic supplies or make it yourself lunch along the river nearby. It is especially fun to visit around 8 a.m. when it is just opening up.

Such a picturesque square. Lots of the must see attractions on or close by. Great for pictures and picking up souvenirs at the stalls. However beware of the trams that you can sometimes forget are coming!

Cafes to sit and watch the crowd, including the original Beck's brewery. Great walking in the old town to see all the sights

We arrived to Bremen on Saturday evening and went sightseeing on Sunday. In the morning there were almost no people around, with the majority of the shops closed, and the square was even better this way. Dominated by St. Peter's cathedral, surrounded by typical German houses and with even two monuments to the famous Bremen musicians around, it was lovely.

This is a postcard perfect place to spend time. We were in Bremen with a meeting group of 50 people and I literally could not walk through this lovely area without seeing others from the group enjoying themselves here too.
