Last week Tuesday, I went to Bremen to visit my cousin for six days. I left sunny Amsterdam to go to rainy Bremen. In spite of the gloomy weather, I visited the church, Schnoor, and some other places in the city.
We visited the Bremen Cathedral dedicated to St. Peter. Whenever I visit a European city, I have to visit a church. The architecture, the painted windows it’s astonishing to see the differences in each church of each city or country.
Schnoorviertel is the only section of the Old Town in Bremen that is still preserved and at the same time forms Bremen’s oldest district. It consists of about 100 small houses dating from the 15th, 16th, 18th, and 19th centuries and is located on the Weser. Schnoorviertel was named after the longest street running through the district.
I was in awe of what I saw, and the only thing I said was: “O My God, this looks like a fairytale. It’s as if I’ve entered the world of Hansel, Grettle, and almost any fairytale character”.
That was my trip to Bremen.
