To the south from the Marktplatz lies Böttcherstrasse that is itself a great piece of art. Its architecture is an ideal connection of traditional and expressionistic styles. The idea of its creation was suggested by Bremen tradesman and patron Ludwig Roselius in 1904; its realization took about 30 years and became possible thanks to architects Scotland and Runge, and also sculptor Bernard Hattgery. Böttcherstrasse is famous for Paula Bekker-Moderson Museum, where takes place the continuous exhibition of her best works. Another place that deserves your attention is the Roselius House with its chimes and interesting collections.
The Schnoor area.
The Schnoor area is the ancient part of the city (in a wonderful condition, by the way) that used to belong to fishermen. Small houses of the 15th- 18th centuries, narrow streets and courtyards create an impression of a very picturesque city. Though the Schnoor area used to be a district for the poor and even was under the danger of demotion, nowadays after a considerable restoration in turned into a popular touristic place. There takes place the Johanniskirche without some towers, that used to belong to Franciscans.
