A weekend full of sightseeing, a concert in the "Glocke" or a family excursion: there are many occasions to visit the city on the Weser River. Even if you have a full program on your business trip, a city tour is worthwhile. The market square, the Bremen Town Musicians and Böttcherstrasse - often called the "good parlor" of Bremen - are worth seeing!
Around the market square are the medieval cathedral as well as the town hall and the guild house "Schütting" from the Weser Renaissance. The ensemble is completed by the Roland, the Liebfrauenkirche and the facades of the market houses. The Böttcherstraße - a unique architectural monument of expressionism - starts from the market place. From here it is only 300 meters to the Schnoor quarter with its tiny houses and narrow streets. A guided tour through the "Bremer Geschichtenhaus" (Bremen Story House), which gives a lively impression of medieval life, is popular, not only with children. The Hanseatic city also scores with museums such as the technical "Universum", the Cathedral Museum or the Paula Modersohn Becker Museum.
A walk along the Weser River is a must as well. Start at the Martinianleger below the Ansgarikirche and look at the historic ships moored here. The Schlachte is a popular meeting place, the Kajenmarket is held here regularly and numerous restaurants and pubs invite you to have a seat.
