Marktplatz, with its impressive UNESCO-recognized town hall, offers you a look back into the many centuries of Bremen's history. Drink in the atmosphere and snap some photos of the architecture and statues of the Town Musicians of Bremen of fairytale fame. Ask a local to show you the Bremen hole and you can put a coin in to hear the musicians play. At least twice a year, a market takes over this community space, which covers 3,484 sq m (37,500 sq ft).

  • You can not directly sehen...aber if one is located on the market square comes over one the nostalgic and generous flair of this place. No doubt you can linger a long time. There are plenty of cafés and restaurants in the immediate area. The Cathedral and the Cathedral square not far from market place away. So all hold "around the corner". There are some parking garages nearby parking. A visit is worthwhile – especially on beautiful days like this.

  • The market square with the historic town hall, the Roland, the Bremen town musicians, the Petri Cathedral and many other interesting sights is the Centre of the old town and is very interesting and attractive.

  • The most picturesque place in the Bremen market square, of course, Marktpljac. It is framed by the beautiful building of the old town hall, the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter, Trier and remarkable ancient buildings in the style of the Weser Renaissance ". There are sculptures of Roland of Bremen and Bremen town musicians.
