Bremen, once a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, is one of the most important cities in northern Germany and together with the city of Bremerhaven it forms Germany's smallest state. Discover the more than 1200 years of history, step into a world of fairy tales and wonders and meet the Bremen Town Musicians.
Begin this magical journey in the historical Market Square, in front of the impressive Town Hall, a UNESCO World Heritage. Right in front of this building another UNESCO World Heritage item will no doubt catch your eye: the statue of Roland. You will then continue to the very close by Protestant main church, Cathedral of St. Peter. Inside, you will admire the fine painted details on the ceiling or, if you think you are up for it, climb the 265 steps for a breathtaking panoramic view of the Old Town, defiantly worth a look!
Next, you will walk around the Town Hall all the way to another very popular tourist attraction: the famous statue of Bremen Town Musicians. Let your guide take you back to your childhood while listening to the famous fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. Proceed to one of the nicest areas of Bremen: Böttcherstrasse (Coopers Street), the incredible Art Nouveau Street dating from 1920 that runs from the main square towards the river. The next and final place to be discovered is the Schnoor Quarter, an area of mazes of twisting lanes, winding alleys, boutiques, restaurants, cafes and galleries.
