A Christmas Market is usually a nice place to visit, but in the surroundings of the old Marktplatz in Bremen it is magical. The buildings themselves are absolutely stunning and the lights of the market and the Christmas decorations all around make it a feast...More

Liked the typical German style, little shops, convenient centre of Bremen. Don't forget to lookup the fairy tail of the Town Musicians, before visiting Bremen ;-)

The market Square offers mostly farm fresh food, so many beautiful flowers and decorations. It's been really amazing strolling around with all those colours

Wonderful fresh produce, butcher products, flowers and things to eat. It's a "happening" place -- full of activity and fun to spend some time in. Look for the famous "spitting stone" located in the square
