Tour of Bremen by foot
During your visit you will have the opportunity to enjoy some Tea/Coffee and traditional German Cake and might even have some time to explore the “Mercedes” shop for some small souvenirs.
For most part the tour will be on foot and will include some of the landmarks and attractions that should not be missed starting at the graceful statue of the Knight Roland, who has been smiling down on the market place since 1404 and is the best known of the 27 that can be found worldwide and the city’s most famous landmark – he is a symbol of Bremen’s freedom; the Market Square, known as the most beautiful one in Europe and where the architectural styles of 5 different eras are visible.
Pass by the 600 years old “Bremer Rathaus” (Old Town Hall), Bremen’s most proud and prime example of distinct Gothic architecture, dating back to 1405 with its magnificent facade. From here you will walk across to the St. Petri Cathedral, originating from the first half of the 13th century.
Animals and... music?
Have you ever heard the tale of the music making animals that were on their way to Bremen? Your next stop will be at the famous internationally acclaimed bronze statue of the “Bremer Stadtmusikanten” (Bremer Town Musicians), sculptured in 1951, where you can pose for your photo of these fairytale animals.
Continue into the “Schnoorviertel”, the oldest residential quarter still intact with its picturesque burgers houses’, some dating back to the 15th century, cozy taverns and small shops.
Return to Bremerhaven by coach with wonderful memories of fast cars and the fairytale city, Bremen.
