Bremen’s oldest town house. Shop and private residence between 1345 and 1948, a firm favourite with local merchants since 1949. House speciality: ‘Sluk ut de lamp’ (herb liqueur).
Slightly tucked away on the way to Böttcherstrasse, Spitzen Gebel is Bremen's last remaining medieval town house. From 1913 onwards it was used as offices by the Vereinigte Klavierträger, and the pub's most famous drink also hails from this period – the Sluk ut de Lamp. Because the Klavierträger, or piano movers, weren't allowed alcohol during working hours they turned an old lamp into a flask to hold their schnapps. Even today a Sluk ut de Lamp is traditionally served from the lamp.
In addition to visitors to the city you will also encounter many regulars, particularly when the local football team Werder Bremen are playing at home! On those occasions you can expect a lively atmosphere and some friendly banter over a glass of schnapps – typically Bremen.
