Marktplatz, with its impressive UNESCO-recognized town hall, offers you a look back into the many centuries of Bremen's history. Drink in the atmosphere and snap some photos of the architecture and statues of the Town Musicians of Bremen of fairytale fame. Ask a local to show you the Bremen hole and you can put a coin in to hear the musicians play. At least twice a year, a market takes over this community space, which covers 3,484 sq m (37,500 sq ft).

On a Monday there was a small market with a few stalls selling meat, cheese and vegetables. There were several lovely flower stalls which smelt divine. more »
We sat and enjoyed a lovely dinner and people watched. It was considerably busier this year and thankfully no musician playing Christmas carols. more »
Nice enchanted place, with several historical buildings and lots of bars and restaurants to taste delicious German bear. The square is really beautiful and was relatively quiet, not too much crowded.
Beautiful square with some very picturesque buildings. The famous statue is right around the corner. Definitely worth a look if you're in Bremen.
