We had high hopes for Bremen, Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed. It has a few old buildings around the market square and... that's it! We were bored after 1 hour and that included a trip to the Schnoor area. If you have seen other old towns around Europe, then this really doesn't come close!

Quite hard to evaluate hostorical area... but... This one is clean, nice, attractive for tourists. One "-" - I was there during the Christmas Marker, so it was crowded, and not so easy to visit. It was quite hard to get a perspective necessary to see buildings. On the other hand, if someone likes markets, streetfoor and hot wine -... More

I looooved the architecture in the old city, the embellishment along the facades is amazing. And this as a background to the Christmas market is really well worth visiting. I really liked the bronze pigs at the street corner too

Bremen has a beautifull and well maintained historic center. Wandering around in this quarter os real fun. Even after several visits there is still a lot to diacover.

One of the nicest German towns and a must see for Christmas or around this period. Prices at the time were low, however the popularity has increased the prices with the cheap frill flight deals are not frill any longer.

During the day busy area with tourists and locals as next to main shopping streets. Fresh food and flower markets. During our visit was a market in the evening with traditional food and souvenirs - lovely to stroll among the lights sipping gluhwein and eating traditional food.

There are very beautiful buildings around the Old Town square. A lot of street food like potato chips, great sausages, smoked fish. Also you can find here a lot of carousels and attractions for children.

A compact old town area that is well worthy of a day's' visit. Lots of shops. Interesting buildings. Friendly people. Good selection of restaurants. Not frenetic. Many areas are Pedestrianised, but watch out for the cyclists !
