Discover Böttcherstraße, a pedestrian alleyway bursting with tradition where the böttcher (coopers) used to make their barrels. Leading from the market square down to the Weser river, the most famous street in Bremen is an attraction in itself with historical red-brick buildings interspersed with modern Expressionist architecture.

    Piere, our guide, spoke excellent English and told us many interesting facts and anecdotes. It was one of the hottest days but he went at an easy pace and thougtfully stopped in the shade at all of the points of interest. He also got us back to the Glockenspielhaus just as it was time for the bells to chime and the picture tower to turn. The tour then continued and finished in the Schnoor district, just perfect for Kaffee and Kuchen. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and now know a lot more about Bremen than we did before.

    It was a very humorous, likeable man who knew a lot to tell about Bremen. My son (9 years) was very enthusiastic and would take part in another tour, even though 2 hours of concentration for a child is quite an achievement. He would have liked to have seen and heard even more. I also have to say that for me personally one could have learned more at one point or another, far away from the usual tourist program items. The planted telephone booth opposite the Schifferhaus, for example, deserves attention, as does the house itself. But all in all it was a nice guided tour, you can walk a lot, listen to a lot of information and experience so much. We are enthusiastic about Bremen and its diversity. We would recommend a tour with a guide to anyone visiting Bremen.

    Unfortunately, I deduct a point. One of the guides did not show up, which was resolved without any problems. The following group absorbed the members of the other group. Thanks for that. After all, a group of almost 50 participants made their way through downtown Bremen. The guide was really good (at least 6 stars). Richard was certainly already retired, but he had a great mix of information, anecdotes, a bit of a statement with a touch of Hanseatic charm. Class! Merci Richard, even if it's a bit annoying that one of the tour guides dropped out, because that shouldn't actually happen if you had booked manageable groups. In the end it was a stroke of luck.
