Having travelled from Australia, it was like Santa had gone crazy and hit Bremen with a Christmas overload. We loved every minute of walking around Marktplatz and along the river, taking in the sights and sounds with a gluhwein in hand. We are already planning our trip to the Christmas markets for next December.

This is a small historical town but has a pretty big and lively Christmas market. We had a lot of fun visiting this place. Highly recommended.

This is a spot that I would highly recommend in Christmas for the market there or on a sunny day for a cafe spot.

This is undoubtedly one of the finest market squares in northern Germany. It was just such a pity that we chose the wrong time of year to visit it. We deliberately timed our trip to avoid the Christmas markets which obscure the architecture. However, preparations start well before the first Sunday in Advent and on the day of our visit... More

The Bremen market square, one of the oldest public places of Bremen town, is situated in the center of the city, surrounded by historical buildings. One of the most awesome ones is surely the town hall. Directly in front of it one can find the statue of Roland which is the symbol of freedom of Bremen city, on the backside... More

Good public area, which was full of stalls selling a variety of local goods.Gives an idea of architectural design in this area of Germany, many centuries ago.

The first parts of Marktplatz in Bremen were first established in the 8th century, yet main developments began in the 13th century. The place encompasses numerous historical buildings and sights. For a prepared traveller, it's a historical gem, for others - at least a reason to make memorable pictures.

In my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful Marktplatz that I visited in Germany. The atmosphere is absolutely amazing, with many historical and remarkable buildings- including churches, city hall, small cafe's, markets and so on. Definitely a place to pass by and give a look.
