Shopping arcades in Bremen

Lloyd Passage

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.
