„Schlachte” is the name of the medieval harbour in the old town of Bremen. It was used for flat-bottomed vessels and river barges until the 16th century, mainly for wood and limestone. As a result of the silting of the Weser, it became Bremen´s main harbour in the 17th century.
When the railway arrived in Bremen in 1860 and Bremerhaven was connected in 1862, the Schlachte lost its position and played no further part as a harbour for the city. The word Schlachte is a Low German word for a river bank reinforced with wooden plies driven in by the action of hammering (German: eingeschlagenen).
Today the Schlachte is a promenade along the east bank for the river Weser with many restaurants, pubs and bars and open-air seating.
Many special events such as regatta, flea markets and barbecue festivals take place during the summer.

The “Viertel”

Viertel (literally „quarter“) is a centrally situated suburb of the city of Bremen. It lies east of the old town and embraces Bremen´s cultural mile with the city´s main theatre, and three museums.
The neighbourhood was developed from the mid-19th century until the 1930s when typical Bremen Houses (Bremer Häuser) were built. Construction firms designed whole stretches of the area´s streets combining tall, narrow row houses with stately villas.
Today the district is known for its shops, cafés and restaurants. Locals also appreciate the shopping mile on Ostertorsteinweg with many small and individual shops and boutiques offering everything imaginable.

Schnoor is a neighbourhood in the medieval centre of the city of Bremen, and the only part of it that has preserved a medieval character. It developed as a district of fisherman and was one of the poorer corners of the town. The neighbourhood owes its name to old handicrafts associated with shipping. There was an area in which ropes and cables were produced (string = schnoor).
In 1973 the Schnoor became a historic district under official heritage conservation through the State Monument Authority. With its narrow streets and old houses dating back to the 15th century, the Schnoor is a main touristic attraction of Bremen.
