Bremen Travel Tip:
View from the Paula Becker-Modersohn Haus towards Haus St. Petrus
Böttcherstrasse is a street in the historic center of Bremen. Only about 330 ft long, it is famous for its unusual architecture and ranks among the city's main cultural landmarks and visitor attractions. Most of its buildings were erected between 1922 and 1931, primarily as a result of the initiative of Ludwig Roselius, a Bremen-based coffee-trader, who charged Bernhard Hoetger with the artistic supervision over the project. The street and its buildings are a rare example of an architectural ensemble belonging to a variant of the expressionist style. Several of the houses can be classified as Brick Expressionism.
The street contains a wonderful mix of shops, arts and crafts, entertainment and musuems; Roselius-Haus Museum has an important collection of Low German domestic artefacts and art works ranging from the Middle Ages to the baroque era. On display at the Paula Modersohn-Becker Museum, the first museum in the world to be dedicated to a female artist, are works by Paula Modersohn-Becker and special exhibitions on the theme of classical modernism.
