Schnoor makes it possible to experience Hanseatic tradition and history. Every year it attracts thousands of visitors to Bremen’s oldest district. Schnoor owes its name to the small, picturesque houses lined up like beads on a string (“Snoor” is the Low German word for string).
In the past the district was mainly inhabited by fishermen and sailors since the Balge, a tributary of the Weser, ran by here.
A cosy, unique atmosphere prevails in Schnoor. Visitors and residents alike feel attracted by the narrow lanes and quaint nooks and crannies. As you stroll by the numerous restaurants, cafés and pubs, you will notice the many still intact historical edifices that have been lovingly and elaborately restored in the past decades.
Bremen’s oldest section has a number of cultural establishments, such as theatres, variety shows, galleries and museums. Furthermore, you will find many craft workshops and antique stores with an extraordinary range of articles.
Schnoor was mentioned for the first time in a document in connection with the Franciscan monastery in the 13th century. This was followed by the related provost church St. Johann in the 14th century. The latter still numbers among the major buildings in Schnoor and is endearingly called “The Little Vatican in Schnoor”.
Schnoor is one of the most interesting sections of Bremen. Here Bremen history, lively everyday life and diverse tourist offerings blend to form a place with a very special atmosphere.
