Bremen: Walking Tour of Historic Schnoor District

4. 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.

What people are saying about Schnoor

The night watchman spoke clearly and told us a lot of interesting things from "his time" in Bremen. He led us from the town hall to the cathedral, to the Weser where the harbor used to be, through Bötcherstrasse and into the Schnoor. It was enough to show the tickets on the phone in the GetYourGiide app. Printing was not necessary.

During the tour you got a lot of interesting information. By involving the group members, everything was explained very clearly by the guide. There was both historical and current information.

Das war eine wirklich schöne Führung & sehr netter Nachtwächter Nur zu empfehlen
