  • Bremen is not great, and its centre reflects this statement. That said, is it really worth losing 3/4 hours of vacation to see this place with its Cathedral, the Town Hall, the statue of the town musicians that you fill your eyes and make you relive old times. The Centre is closed to traffic and only passes the tram.

  • A beautiful old town with romantic flair. Beautiful architecture with many lovely details! There everywhere to discover something for young and older generation. From the historic feel to the city, everything is... also a super target for shopping days. The Böttcher street below the marketplace is highly recommended.

  • Bremen was not really worth it. Yes the old town is old and beautiful, but in 5 min are you walked from one end to the other. If you do then you can better go to Germany to a Hanseatic town where greater cultural heritage can be seen, such as e.g. Lubeck.
