Bremen: Walking Tour of Historic Schnoor District

3. Bremen: Walking Tour of Historic Schnoor District

Enjoy a relaxing shared or private walking tour through Bremen's historical Schnoor neighborhood. The first-known written reference to Schnoor dates back to the 13th century. At this time, a Franciscan monastery was built on the edge of what is now the Schnoor district. Today, only the monastery church remains. The present Catholic St. John's Church was built in the 14th century, in a redbrick Gothic style. Many houses from the 17th and 18th centuries are still preserved in their original state, giving a romantic feeling of life during earlier times. During the walking tour, see some of the oldest remaining profane buildings, such as "Haus Schnoor 15," also known as "Brasilhaus," and "Packhaus Schnoor 2," dating back to the 15th century. Take a look at some of these houses, recreated according to historical specifications. Admire the half-timbered house with the tea room or the buildings that now consist only of facades, which once stood elsewhere. Immerse yourself in the impressive architecture of classicism and historicism, Baroque and Renaissance, as you learn all about Schnoor and its inhabitants.

Really good activity for kids and scientifically curious adults. My boy aged 11 loved it. We spend about 3 hours there and we didn't do any of the outside activities. There's food at the entrance and within the exhibition hall and is fairly priced and good quality.

Just great. But falling down the pointless step in the restaurant was annoying, especially the comment: you're not the first. How about a remedy?

In my opinion one of the most beautiful museums I know! Very entertaining thanks to the many hands-on stations! We recommend!!!

Many experiments to amaze and laugh. But also good food for thought. Recommended! There is also a very well run canteen.

It was full of fun out there with different scientific sceneries.
