Full description
Wander through the market square, the heart of Bremen and one of the prettiest squares in Germany. Marvel at the UNESCO World Heritage listed town hall and the stone statue of Roland. Study the sculpture of the Bremen Town Musicians, made famous in a Brothers Grimm fairytale. Discover Böttcherstraße, a pedestrian alleyway bursting with tradition where the böttcher (coopers) used to make their barrels. Leading from the market square down to the Weser river, the most famous street in Bremen is an attraction in itself with historical red-brick buildings interspersed with modern Expressionist architecture. Take in the picturesque Schnoor quarter, the oldest part of Bremen. Wander through its rambling lanes, where fishermen, artisans and sailors once lived.

    Unfortunately, I deduct a point. One of the guides did not show up, which was resolved without any problems. The following group absorbed the members of the other group. Thanks for that. After all, a group of almost 50 participants made their way through downtown Bremen. The guide was really good (at least 6 stars). Richard was certainly already retired, but he had a great mix of information, anecdotes, a bit of a statement with a touch of Hanseatic charm. Class! Merci Richard, even if it's a bit annoying that one of the tour guides dropped out, because that shouldn't actually happen if you had booked manageable groups. In the end it was a stroke of luck.

    The city tour was very nice and took us through all the important points. The headset worked perfectly. I found it annoying that the guide was very upset about disruptive factors, you could have ignored them, especially since you could hear everything very well through the headset. Street music is played in a city and there are disruptive factors. The fact that the tour did not end in the Schnoor district as described because the headsets had to be returned to the tourist information office was unfortunate because we had to walk back to drink coffee there. All in all, considering the price, you got a very good insight into the city's history and saw the most important points.

    The city guide spoke perfect English (since she was English!) And also slowly, so that guests who spoke other languages but spoke English could understand everything very well. In addition, the tour through the stations, which also have seating, was well designed in terms of the process. We also got a comprehensive knowledge of the history of Bremen. It was an all-round very satisfactory result. Thanks a lot for this!
