Beautiful christmas market! I am planning to visit next year as well!! There are many stalls selling something sweet/salty to eat, gluchwein, christmas decorations, small kitchen items, toys, lamps etc. Bring enough cash as many of the stalls don´t accept credit cards. (Though if you forget that, there is a bank automat on one side of the Marktplatz.) Don´t forget... More

Some very nice buildings to view or have a beer. Nice to sit under the arched walkway and people watch.

I really enjoy the German Christmas markets [our imitations in the UK nowhere near the real experience]. Good selection of stalls and connected but a short distance away a contrasting but excellent medieval Christmas market. One can't beat the smells, the bratwurst and the gluhwein

I arrived to Bremen on the first day of Christmas Market and lighting of the "Tannenbaum", so the Marktplatz was very alive, plenty of people enjoying " Weihnachtspunsch" and "Glühwein", but...the stands of the market didn't allow me to enjoy the view of the beautiful buildings that form the square, so...I hold on the legs of the donkey of Bremen's...

The Square and surrounding streets are full of very colourful stalls, selling a wide range of seasonal gifts, decorations, hot food and of course 'Gluwein'. The area is surrounded by some majestic buildings, including the Cathedral, Town Hall (Rathaus), and the Guildhall. Allow yourself plenty of time to take it all in !

Great Christmas Market for a city the size of Bremen. Went during the week with some friends, so we didn't find it busy at all. There were just enough people to make it festive with the hustle and bustle of a market, but not too busy where you can't even walk through. Tried the Feuerzangenbowle which was quite tasty. Also...

I really love the christmas market located at Marktplatz. There is a unique charm to the christmas market here. It did not give the feeling of being commercial. In fact, it felt magical just by standing in Markplatz looking at the many surrounding beautiful buildings located in Markplatz. This is a must do for any traveller visiting Bremen during in...
