4.7
#3 of 66 in Things to do in Bremen
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). Put Marktplatz into our Bremen vacation trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Bremen.

    The ensemble to the Bremen Cathedral, the Schütting, the Town Hall and Roland is a great photo opportunity. Get a cold beer and enjoy the city

    We visited Bremen for a few hours (excursion on the cruise) and were really impressed by the beauty of this square with many gothic monuments and magnificent buildings of Nordic architecture.

    Don't book guided tours but savor the beauty of Gothic buildings as soon as darkness falls will be heard and the first light of the town of Bremen. In the silence of Marktplatz the only sound you'll hear is the melody of a mysterious violinist who every evening gives the city unforgettable emotions ... stop to admire the Cathedral and the Town Hall in an interplay of light and shadows accompanied only by the gentle notes of a violin, without name or identity, which appears and disappears like a ghost ... perhaps it is the historical memory of Bremen who greets and welcomes tourists who love and treasure art , architecture and music?
