Tour description provided by Viator

Experience an exciting guided walking tour of Böttcherstraße, one of the most beloved tourist attractions in Bremen. See historic buildings from between 1922 and 1931 and learn more about the area’s development. It is famous for its unusual architecture and ranks among the city’s main cultural landmarks and visitor attractions.
In 1902, Ludwig Roselius, influenced by the owner, purchased Haus Nr. 6 on Böttcherstraße (today the Ludwig-Roselius-Museum) and erected the administrative center of his company, from which Kaffee HAG later emerged. Roselius then acquired multiple other properties on Böttcherstraße. Between 1930 and 1931, Bernhard Hoetger built the "Atlantis House," based on the utopian story of the fabled city of Atlantis. Built with geometric forms of glass, wood and steel, the house has an Art Deco style. Several of the houses can be classed as Brick Expressionism. In 1944, large proportions of Böttcherstraße were destroyed by aerial bombing. By 1954, the Kaffee HAG company had restored most of the facades to their original state. Since 1973, the ensemble has been protected by the monument protection act.
