  Old Town Hall
by MichaelFalk1969

Bremen was once very affluent as a an independent merchant city state and member of the medieval Hanseatic League. That was long ago, though the mercantile tradition and former glory still shows.

What do to when in Bremen:

- admire the architecture:
- the Old Town Hall
- the nearby Schütting, a magnificent Patrician residence
- and the "Stadtwaage", a well-preserved merchant house

- near the Old Town Hall you find the most prominent Bremen monuments, the "Roland" (a medieval knight symbolizing the independence of many merchant cities) and the "Bremer Stadtmusikanten" (animals from a fairy tale of the Brothers Grimm).
- the pretty Old Town quarter of "Schnoor" with lots of art shops
- the "Überseemuseum" (ethnological museum)
- the St. Petri Cathedral
