Rathaus and Roland zu Bremen - World Heritage of Humanity
The City Hall and the Roland on the market square in Bremen were jointly included in the World Heritage List in July 2004. It recognizes this ensemble as a "unique testimony" to the development of civil autonomy and market rights, as they have formed over the centuries in Europe. The much visited Bremen Town Hall was built in the years 1405 - 1409. It is the only European town hall of the late Middle Ages that has never been destroyed. Since its construction, the Town Hall has been continuously maintained and maintained - a prerequisite for being recognized as a World Heritage Site. The UNESCO committee also honors the authenticity of the building with its decision. The Bremen Town Hall is certified to have maintained its authenticity from the first gothic building - a so-called "Saalgeschoßbau" - at the beginning of the 15th century, through the extensive restoration two centuries later to the extension of the new town hall at the beginning of the 20th century. Numerous German town halls were destroyed during the Second World War, many were made changes. However, the building in Bremen has been completely preserved in its original condition.

Unfortunately, this beautiful world heritage site receives much less attention than the Bremen Town Musicians. When I was there, I noticed that the majority of the visitors did not really notice the Town Hall and the Roland and only ran to the city musicians ... a selfie is much easier ...;)
