The Lloyd Passage is home to around 30 shops and two major departments stores. Today, it's only the name that is a reminder that these businesses occupy the former site of Lloyd’s North German shipping operations. Since 2003, many VIPs have left behind their hand prints (cast in bronze) as a memento of their visit to the Passage. Having a connection to Bremen was the requirement for this memorial, which is why you'll see hand prints from celebrities such as comedian Hape Kerkeling and satirist Jan Böhmermann.
If you enjoy strolling around shopping centres, a visit to Bremen's Huchting, Walle or Osterholz districts is an absolute must. In the centres there you'll find an excellent selection of shops, chain stores and a variety of food courts, all with free parking.
