  • We sat and enjoyed a lovely dinner and people watched. It was considerably busier this year and thankfully no musician playing Christmas carols.  more »
  • The Marktplatz is surrounded by beautiful, historical buildings. The famous statue, Town Musicians of Bremen is also around the corner. There are flower markets and farmers markets on Saturday/sunday.  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.
