Soegestrasse earned its name in the 13th century. Derived from the word “Soege“ which means “pig”. This derivation is commemorated with a tableau of bronze pigs at the entrance to the street.
The street today is a shopping strip as well as a major access route to the central train station in Bremen City. It offers visitors an extraordinary and diverse range of wares. International chain stores as well as local Bremen firms, rich in tradition, can be found in its stylish precincts.
