Especially with nice wheather it's fun to walk around the Wallanlagen park, the green belt with water around the city center. In former times to protect the city from enemies, now a nice area for walking or ice skating in winter. The old windmill now is a nice cafe, great to sit inside or outside.
Located half way between the central station and the Soegestrasse shopping area.
Next to the cityhall there is a statue of the four most famous inhabitants of Bremen. The four 'Bremer Stadtmusikanten' (= town-musicians), the mule, the dog, the cat and the rooster from this famous fairytale. You don't know the story and you go to Bremen: Well, then buy the story in any bookstore or touristgiftshop, sit down on one of the many terraces and read it. No better place to learn about it then the place ... where it happened.
It is difficult to find trams in the most modern cities of Germany. Bremen is a place where you still can see trams in full business on the roads.
Walking down from the station, before reaching the old town, you pass this windmill just off Burgermeister Strasse. Nearby is Am Wall which marks boundary between the old town and the rest of Bremen.
Don`t miss the "Schnoor" Area in Bremen. It`s really lovely. Small Streets, wonderful buildings, Cafes...
And it`s not so far away from the Market Place.
Follow the signs!!!
A great place when the wheather is nice. One of the outside places with the nices atmosphere in Bremen. Great to take a rest from your Buergerpark tour!
One of these buildings in the schnoor Area. these sign means that this house was destroyed in WW II, and they rebuilt it.
These area offers many places to make a short break. Sit down and have a Coffee or drink a beer...And watch the people...
