A foreign-language guided tour that takes you to the highlights of Bremen's historical city centre. Many of these are concentrated on the market square, the focal point of the city and undoubtedly one of the prettiest squares in Germany. Of particular note are the magnificent town hall and the stone statue of Roland, which were jointly accorded UNESCO World Heritage status in June 2004, and the sculpture of the Bremen Town Musicians from the Brothers Grimm fairytale.
Also on the itinerary is Böttcherstrasse, a pedestrian alleyway bursting with tradition where the böttcher (coopers) used to make their barrels. Leading from the market square down to the Weser river, the most famous street in Bremen is an attraction in itself with historical red-brick buildings interspersed with modern Expressionist architecture.
Your guided walk also takes in the picturesque Schnoor quarter, the oldest part of Bremen that is still intact today. Its rambling lanes, where fishermen, artisans and sailors once lived, are now home to delightful cafés, inns and taverns, top-notch restaurants and all manner of handicrafts.
