Full description
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.

Informative und abwechslungsreiche Führung durch das Schnoorviertel.. Lebnhafte Erzählungen und Annektdoten, die der Guide kurzweilig an mehreren Stationen präsentierte. Die Zeit verging sehr schnell und man hatte nie das Gefühl der Langenweile. Sehr zu empfehlen. Der Preis (200 €) ist für eine Stunde Rundgang jedoch etwas zu hoch angesetzt. Die Leistung lag bei 5 Sternen.

Unser Führer durch das Schnorr, ich glaube, Oliver hieß er, hat freundlich, ruhig und kundig aus vielerlei Aspekten heraus der Rundgang abwechslungsreich und spannend gemacht. Man konnte jederzeit Fragen stellen, die immer beantwortet werden konnten.

Der Rundgang durch das Schnoorviertel war klasse: informativ, kurzweilig und auf unsere Gruppe sehr gut abgestimmt. Durch den kleinen Geschichten sowie zusätzliche Information erlebt man eine Stadt ganz anders und viel intensiver. Unser Gilde Oliver Söhlke ist sehr zu empfehlen, da es spannend erzählt und jeden in der Gruppe damit erreicht. Wir waren mit drei Generationen (von 18 bis 85) im Rahmen einer Familientour im Schnoorviertel (Rundgang 1 Std.) und wirklich allen hat es gut gefallen. Top Weiterempfehlung!!!!
