coming back from Bremen

der lichtbringer ~ entrance to Böttcherstrasse in Bremen
This old narrow street lined with craftsmen was given its name in the Middle Ages by barrel makers and coopers (Böttcher) located here. Later this street was transformed into a unique work of art by Bremen coffee merchant Ludwig Roselius (Kaffee Hag) and the architects, Eduard Scotland and Alfred Runge, as well as sculptor Bernhard Hoetger from Worpswede.
The “Lichtbringer” by Hoetger, an impressive golden relief plate, marks the entrance to Bremen’s “secret main street” with the red brick architecture typical of the 1920s
