Bremen (Germany)

The City Municipality of Bremen is a Hanseatic city in northwestern Germany.

The Marktplatz (Market square) is dominated by the opulent façade of the Town Hall of Bremen. The building was erected between 1405 and 1410 in Gothic style, but the façade was built two centuries later (1609–12) in Renaissance style. In July 2004, along with the Bremen Roland, the building was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

St Peter's Cathedral (13th century) is located to the east of the Marktplatz, with sculptures of Moses and David, Peter and Paul and Charlemagne.

Off the south side of the Markplatz, the 110 m (120 yd) Böttcherstraße was transformed in 1923–1931 by the coffee magnate Ludwig Roselius, who commissioned local artists to convert the narrow street (in medieval times, the street of the barrel makers) into an inspired mixture of Gothic and Art Nouveau.

Tucked away between the Cathedral and the river is the Schnoor, a small, well-preserved area of crooked lanes, fishermen's and shipper's houses from the 17th and 18th centuries, now occupied by cafés, artisan shops and art galleries.
