Bremen shopping is an even more pleasant experience because of the small size and beautiful lanes of the town. You can easily spend a day wandering the streets, window-shopping in the exclusive shopping streets, or hunting for a deal at one of the local markets.
You’re sure to find everything from the latest fashions to traditional handmade gift items.
Bremen Shopping Tip
Opening hours in Bremen shops are generally Monday through Saturday, from 9 or 10 am to 7 or 8 pm, occasionally even longer. Most shops are still closed on Sundays, except some that cater more exclusively to tourists.
Obernstraße and Sögestraße
These two streets make up the heart of Bremen shopping. You can be sure to find all the big names of European retail here. Roland Kleidung is a popular stop for women’s fashions, while Karstadt also has a flagship store represented. If you’re in the market for the latest fashions, then Obernstraße and Sögestraße are an essential stop on your tour itinerary.
This Bremen shopping passage links the popular Sögestraße to the Cathedral Square. With such a prime location, you can expect to find an impressive array of shopping possibilities here!
This old shopping district of Bremen is a historical attraction as well. The Schnoor Quarter (or Schnoorviertel) also offers many fine souvenir shops where you can find a variety of handmade German crafts and art galleries.
Enjoy the shopping here as you explore the picturesque surroundings of quaint houses from the 12th and 13th centuries. Also, these shops are open on Sundays — a rarity in German cities!
Head to the riverside district to check out the local flea markets. Most are held on Saturdays from about 10 am until 4 pm. The Weserflohmarkt can be visited along the promenade at Schlachte and Weser. Bargain hunters are guaranteed a great time.
Ostertor / Steintor
If your taste leans toward the more unique and quirky, then the Viertel (the area around Ostertor and Steintor) is the shopping district for you. With a fun, imaginative range of stores — tea shops and healing stones, for example — you can satisfy your desire for the unusual here.
Don’t miss Bremen’s biggest shopping mall at Weserpark. In addition to all the shopping, there’s also a large multiplex, health spas and restaurants!
