Thanks to its elaborate architecture, the Böttcherstraße – located in the historic district and adjacent to the ATLANTIC Grand Hotel – is a cultural monument and one of the most frequently visited tourist attractions. Most of the buildings were built between 1922 and 1931 and mostly ascribable to Bremen’s coffee merchant and patron Ludwig Roselius (1874-1943). Roselius commissioned the sculptor, painter and architect Bernhard Hoetger (1874-1949) with the artistic design.
Century-old buildings, tiny houses and twisted alleys – this is Schnoor. In the Schnoor quarter you can just stroll, because no cars are allowed in this area. This quarter owes its name to ship trading. The houses often were associated with professions or objects. There was an area in which cords and ropes were manufactured (Schnoor = cord) and a nearby area in which wire and anchor chains were made (Low German “Wiere”= wire), which explains where the street name “Lange Wieren” got its name from.
The origins can bed dated back to the 13th century. Today, the quarter, which has been restored with great attention to detail, housed a large number of restaurants, cafés and pubs, and also offers space for museums, galleries, artisan craft shops and theatres.
