Bremen: Schnoor quarter

Like pearls on a string (dialect "schnoor") the little houses from the 15th and 16th century in Bremen's oldest quarter are lined up closely together in a row. Originally it was home to fishers and skippers but that changed after the foundation of a Franciscan cloister and the arrival of more and more traders and tradesmen. Today the "Schnoor" proves itself to be a lively historical quarter with a broad variety of architectural styles.
