The first shopping arcade in Bremen's inner city has now been around for 30 years: The Katharinen-Passage is affectionately known simply as KATHARINA by customers and resident businesspeople alike.
The arcade, with its many specialist shops nestles beneath the "Katharinenklosterhof" multi-storey car park in the ancient walls of the former Katharinenkloster abbey. The large Gothic windows in the abbey's cloister and the interior vaults now house a restaurant. The remains of the old building can still be clearly seen here.
What used to be a quiet retreat is now a lively location with an interesting and diverse mix of retail, service businesses and restaurants.
