Leaving the Bremen Schnoor Quarter, we walk along the River Weser, admiring the fabulous waterfront, full of ships, restaurants, and places to hang out.
One of the ships is a theater, with plays advertised on quay.
Across the river, we see the Beck's Brewery, Brauerei Beck & Co., the fourth largest brewer in Germany, now owned by the Interbrew subsidiary of US Anheuser-Busch Inbev SA/NV.
As we return to market square, walking down the modern pedestrian-only shopping street, we find a food market in the square and browse the stalls, near the famous Town Musicians of Bremen statue, based on the German fairy tale published in Grimm's Fairy Tales in 1819: four aging domestic animals, neglected and mistreated, run away to become town musicians in Bremen.
Walking back to the train station, we find great , sometimes whimsical, sculpture scattered around the city and a whimsical approach to light dining, such as frites and sausage.
