Historical architecture and a modern spirit

Historical architecture combined with a modern spirit in a sense of tram, busses, shops, and common people with their everyday activities. Nice atmosphere.

The area is good to walk around and snap pics of the old, historical, beautiful buildings. If the weather is warm, you could enjoy an ice cream or coffee and gaze at the architecture.

we visited the Altstadt during the Weihnachtsmarkts. It had a very nice atmosphere. The markt was located near the waterfront and in the squares in the center of the Altstadt. It had a very good atmosphere,

We had high hopes for Bremen, Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed. It has a few old buildings around the market square and... that's it! We were bored after 1 hour and that included a trip to the Schnoor area. If you have seen other old towns around Europe, then this really doesn't come close!

Quite hard to evaluate hostorical area... but... This one is clean, nice, attractive for tourists. One "-" - I was there during the Christmas Marker, so it was crowded, and not so easy to visit. It was quite hard to get a perspective necessary to see buildings. On the other hand, if someone likes markets, streetfoor and hot wine -... More

I looooved the architecture in the old city, the embellishment along the facades is amazing. And this as a background to the Christmas market is really well worth visiting. I really liked the bronze pigs at the street corner too

Bremen has a beautifull and well maintained historic center. Wandering around in this quarter os real fun. Even after several visits there is still a lot to diacover.
