Places of interest

Bremen Roland statue, Copyright BTZ
Bremen's attractions include the Weser-Renaissance-style town hall, the Schnoor – Bremen's oldest quarter, the unusual architecture of quaint little Böttcherstrasse, the cathedral and the venerable figure of Roland on the historical market square. And last but not least, the Bremen Town Musicians from the Brothers Grimm fairytale.
Bremen town hall and the Roland statue
The Gothic brick building with its splendid Renaissance facade and Roland statue have been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The importance of the town hall is demonstrated by the distinctive style of its architecture, known as Weser Renaissance, which was prominent in north Germany in the late Renaissance period. Bremen's Roland is one of the oldest and most impressive of the Roland statues which were erected as symbols of freedom and trading rights. The Great Hall inside the town hall is one of Germany's finest banqueting halls.
St. Peter's cathedral
The cathedral combines a number of different architectural styles. The font dating back to 1220, the choir stalls (1360) and the pulpit (1638) are all well worth a visit. The adjoining cathedral museum contains burial objects discovered in 1973 and bishops' vestments.
Bremen Town Musicians statue
On the western side of the town hall is the well-known bronze statue of the Bremen Town Musicians, created by the artist Gerhard Marcks. The Brothers Grimm fairytale is based on the fact that musicians had been playing music from the church tower and at fairs and feast-days since 1339. As in the fairytale, these "town musicians" frequently accepted itinerant musicians into their company.
