  • Here, the history of Bremen smiles to the visitors. Seminar participants had a studied City Guide. That was really worth to visit also the Schnoor district.

  • We were now 3 times in Bremen, also for the 3 time in the Schnoor quarter, the narrow streets and tiny houses are always great photo opportunities.

  • It is the ancient heart of the city. Absolutely love that place with its super narrow streets and tiny houses. There are so many different small stores do discover which sell handcrafted goods and not only the "always the same" tourist gifts. Even though I grew up in Bremen and probably been there over a hundred times, I always enjoy going once more.
  • Old heritage area with narrow lanes. The sidewalks are filled with shops. Gives you the impression of walking through history. Very enjoyable and a lovely experience.
  • Schnoor is beautiful, traditional area that reminds me of the old medieval times. Tiny shops and good food are to be found here.
  • Such a lovely romantic place being in the surrounding. Rebuilt small houses are there. It is rebuilt since it had been destroyed during the war. The government had restored it again and designated the area as one of the tourist attraction. Many food stalls and souvenir shops are within the area, for you to further explore Schnoor. Paved by using small square stone blocks, which makes the environment a lot more unique. And one more thing, Schnoor is located within walking distance from the Bremen city center. Enjoy!!!
  • Cute shopping area, old wonky buildings and tiny alleys, like something from Harry Potter. Gets quite busy during the day but nice to walk through at night just to take it all in. Lots of craft shops, souvenirs and places to eat and drink
