Beyond The Marktplatz: Schnoor Quarter

The oldest and most quaint sections of Bremen is the Schnoor Quarter. A tangled maze of small streets are lined with shops and restaurants. The name Schnoor refers to the workshops where the rigging for ships were made. This neighborhood was one of the poorest and home to the local fishermen. Many of the half timbered buildings date back to 1400 and 1500’s.
