“really special”
Review of Marktplatz

Marktplatz
Ranked #3 of 114 things to do in Bremen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 November 2013

The markt platz in Bremen is traditional but is is a bit more inspiring than many due to the large number of towering structures in a compact space. The mart snakes through out the city and offers many temptations as well as surprises.

In the heart of the old town of Bremen (also known as Medieval Bremen), is the Marktplatz where the town hall and cathedral is located and on the western side, several gabled houses. This would have been a perfect square all around, but one building, the state parliament, slightly marred the place.

Also in front of the town hall is the statue of Roland which dates back from 1404 and is a UNESCO world heritage sight. Also here is the monument known as the 'Bremen Town Musicians' which is a donkey, dog, cat and cockerel and is based on an fairy tale where the animals trekked to Bremen.

It is a beautiful square and has 80% of the tourist attractions located here! Also many bars and restaurants to have a sit down, drink, eat, chat.....fantastic! Just be careful of the trams which run through here every few minutes.

Liked the size of the square and the fact that on the day we visited there was an actual market selling plants and flowers, fresh fish and cooked foods. Didn't like the huge covered area to one end which contained a coffee shop as it didn't protect you fro the weather.

Marktplatz is absolutely worth checking out! It was fun for us to look at the various buildings and wander around the shopping alleys. Make sure you find the Bremen Hole and throw a couple of coins in for the musicians. It can be a challenge to find but if you google it you'll get the exact location. Most people we saw wandered over it thinking it was just a manhole cover, so it's easy to miss.
