This is undoubtedly one of the finest market squares in northern Germany. It was just such a pity that we chose the wrong time of year to visit it.

The Bremen market square, one of the oldest public places of Bremen town, is situated in the center of the city, surrounded by historical buildings.

The first parts of Marktplatz in Bremen were first established in the 8th century, yet main developments began in the 13th century. The place encompasses numerous historical buildings and sights. For a prepared traveller, it's a historical gem, for others - at least a reason to make memorable pictures.

In my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful Marktplatz that I visited in Germany. The atmosphere is absolutely amazing, with many historical and remarkable buildings- including churches, city hall, small cafe's, markets and so on. Definitely a place to pass by and give a look.

This is a huge area, accommodating large events and crowds. It is easy to get around and look at the beautiful buildings around the perimeter. Many restaurants. Bremen has such a beautiful marktplatz. Very clean. There is definite pride here.

This is an open air area in Bremen which has many people enjoying it. Find a spot under one of the umbrellas, order a Beck's, and people watch. Enjoy!

Visited on a Saturday. Lots of shops around. Seems like one of the best spots in Bremen to take a stroll. Don't miss Schlachte which is very close to this place.
