The Böttcherstrasse inspires with its unique symbiosis of traditional and expressionist brick architecture.
Built between 1922 and 1931 by Ludwig Roselius, the coffee merchant and inventor of the decaffeinated coffee HAG, Böttcherstraße is then and now the secret main street of Bremen and a synonym for way of life. At 108 meters between the market square and the Weser, it offers a successful mix of enjoyment, trade, art and culture.
Artistically designed by Bernhard Hoetger, the buildings on Böttcherstraße are a rare example of expressionist architecture. Unique structures make the street one of the main attractions of Bremen. For example, the "Haus des Glockenspiels", where 30 Meissen porcelain bells ring every hour on the hour from January to March at 12, 3 and 6 p.m. and from April to December between 12 and 6 p.m. At the same time, 10 carved wooden panels showing well-known ocean conquerors rotate on the front of the house.bremen.de/tourismus/sehenswuerdheiten/die-boettcherstrasse
