Made the decision to head off to Bremen to see a true German market wow. Cool weekend but awesome market stalls and music. Gluwein stalls everywhere. Lovely decorations to purchase and food a plenty. Felt very safe even though I was by myself. Christmas in Australia is nothing like this chance of a lifetime! You must do this

you get to sample all types of food and wine at the festivals. Take advantage of the samples on and empty stomach.

Having travelled from Australia, it was like Santa had gone crazy and hit Bremen with a Christmas overload. We loved every minute of walking around Marktplatz and along the river, taking in the sights and sounds with a gluhwein in hand. We are already planning our trip to the Christmas markets for next December.

This is a small historical town but has a pretty big and lively Christmas market. We had a lot of fun visiting this place. Highly recommended.

This is a spot that I would highly recommend in Christmas for the market there or on a sunny day for a cafe spot.

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. We deliberately timed our trip to avoid the Christmas markets which obscure the architecture. However, preparations start well before the first Sunday in Advent and on the day of our visit... More

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. One of the most awesome ones is surely the town hall. Directly in front of it one can find the statue of Roland which is the symbol of freedom of Bremen city, on the backside... More

Good public area, which was full of stalls selling a variety of local goods.Gives an idea of architectural design in this area of Germany, many centuries ago.
