Bremen is of course an old city of fables come to life. This is one of the areas you can see and think back to Grimm's fairy tales and dream of their inspirations.

The majority of interesting things to see in this picturesque little street off the main square is above eye-level. After having eaten, we wandered down here just in time to see the glockenspiel at midday - very pretty and well-timed. Apart from that there's not...More

What sets Böttcherstraße apart from many other streets of old buildings is the many courtyards off the main thoroughfare with interesting features and artworks. Well worth taking the time for a walk, perhaps on way to or from the river.

Not our sort of "go-to" sightseeing. A bit boring and nothing really caught our attention here and to many people in a limited space

Böttcherstrasse is one of many fine streets in the fairytale city of Bremen. You’ll find the famous bells (Glockenspiel) and the tourist office in this street, but apart from that it’s not a must-see. Schnoor Viertel is much more picturesque, sorry to say.

A charming little street with artists shops and restaurants plus the glockenspiel. You could simply take a short stroll up down the street, time your visit to hear the glockenspiel or enjoy a meal. Worth the time to visit.

Charming little street with loads of small shops. Beware it can be overrun with tourists especially when the bells start ringing.
