The Marterburg is a street in the Schnoor district of Bremen in the north of Germany. The name comes from Mattenburg as it was the place where the millers used to store flour in Matten (silos). The street runs from Ostertorstraße in a southwesterly direction curving slightly westwards before reaching the Tiefer near the river. Sidestreets include Kolpingstraße, Hinter der Balge and Schnoor. The street follows the old city wall which forms the rear of the houses on the eastern side, sometimes being used as part of their foundations. Many of the buildings to the south of Kolpingstraße are old listed buildings, several of which have been restored.
In the 1980s and 1990s, both sides of the Marterburg to the north of Kolpingstraße were redeveloped with residential and commercial buildings designed by Wolfram Goldapp and Thomas Klumpp. They sought to contribute to the character of this part of the old town by introducing the Postmodern style. The colourful, playfully conceived frontages contrast with the plain office buildings in the surroundings. The 27 houses included in the project have shops or offices on the ground floor with apartments in the upper storeys. Although the buildings have been criticized by some on the grounds of pseudoindividuality, most locals appreciate them and visitors count them among the city's attractions.

Lovely little area a short walk from the main town Packed with interesting art and cafes A lovely way to spend a few hours out of the main square. Great for tourists and locals. Some boutique type shops and done tourist souvenir shops. Most people speak good English which helped me and my wife. We enjoyed a lovely coffee in a nice cafe. There is also a great Xmas decorations shop open all year round Highly recommended

Awesome and beautiful tiny houses really worth a visit. A lot of small shop with some hand crafted accessories. Good restaurants and places just to have a coffee.

Small, tiny neat shops, the former big city slum, nowadays for gathering arts and crafts for people, who want to forget about the cruelty of the present for bright moments. Do NOT miss ART15 at Schnoor 15!! Great figurative and abstract masterpieces, a place packed with all taste!

Beautiful surrounding with small streets, restaurants, various gift shops and art galeries. It's a glampse of what Bremen used to be like. Take an hour our three to discover Schnoorviertel and to have lunch at one of the nice restaurants.

Well restored old neighborhood, now full of fancy little shops, galleries, restaurants and coffee shops. Narrow streets. Definitely worth a visit.

Generous and tasty entries. Stopped here as tourists, but found mostly locals eating there. Cozy and cute with outdoor seating available in summer.
