Bremen: Walking Tour of Historic Schnoor District

1. 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 Bremen

Informative and varied tour through the Schnoor district. Lively stories and anecdotes presented by the guide at several stations. The time passed very quickly and there was never a feeling of boredom. We recommend. However, the price (200 €) is a bit too high for an hour tour. The performance was 5 stars.

Our guide through the Schnorr, I think his name was Oliver, made the tour varied and exciting in a friendly, calm and knowledgeable way from many aspects. You could always ask questions, which could always be answered.

Super good and sweet guide

Although this was the first time she was a guide, she was well prepared and we were incredibly pleased with her unpretentious way of being. Highly recommended to everyone else.

It's a great experience to get to know Bremen in this way!

We experienced Bremen through the eyes of a resident. This is exciting because we probably came to places that we would never have seen otherwise.

Friendly staff and a nice tour always enjoyed going back
