The Reeder-Bischoff-Straße is one of the main shopping streets in Bremen - Vegesack . It leads in an east-west direction from Breite Straße past the Kleiner Markt to the street Zur Vegesacker Fähre and, together with Gerhard-Rohlfs-Straße and a section of Breiten Straße, is part of a pedestrian zone that connects the upper with the lower Vegesack, thus connects with the Vegesack harbor , the Vegesack train station and the shopping center Haven Höövt Vegesack .

The cross streets were u. a. named as Breite Straße, which separates Alt- and Neuvegesack, Rohrstraße after the printer's owner Johann Friedrich Rohr (1816–1878), Jaburgstraße after the painter Addig Jaburg (1819–1875) the marine painter Oltmann Jaburg (1830–1908), Höljesweg after an old one Vegesack family, Friedrich-Schild-Straße to Friedrich Schild (1870–1921), who had done a great job for Vegesack and to the Vegesack ferry which leads over the Weser to Lemwerder .



From the Breiten Strasse to the Kleiner Markt (today: Ambassador-Duckwitz-Platz ), the street was first called Brunnenstrasse , from Platz to what was then Havenstrasse : Neuestrasse (this lower part was rebuilt around 1860). In 1901 the entire course of the street was renamed Bahnhofstraße . It finally got its name around 1950 in memory of the Vegesack shipowners and merchants Friedrich Bischoff (1861–1920) and Johann Diedrich Bischoff.


From 1618 to 1623 the Vegesack harbor, which belonged to Bremen, was laid out. Around the port, the village of Vegesack developed mainly to the west, which came to the Electorate of Hanover in 1741, but without the port, became Bremen again in 1803 and became a city in 1852. After 1773, Kur-Hannover developed a plan to settle the heather between Fähr and the Vegesack harbor and slowly, from around 1780, implemented it as Neu-Vegesack .

In the 19th century, Reeder-Bischoff-Straße developed alongside Gerhard-Rohlfs-Straße and Weserstraße into one of the early main streets of Vegesack. It had a predominantly two-story residential development.

The renovation of old and new Vegesack since the 1970s changed the image of the street permanently. In the lower area up to house number 23, the connection road to the Vegesacker ferry was created as a larger cut through the "ferry breakthrough" , combined with the demolition of up to 20 buildings on the lower south side of Reeder-Bischoff-Straße. On the other hand, in 1978 a banner: "This is where the last bit of the old town dies" was protested. However, the demolitions for the "ferry breakthrough" and the new buildings were realized in the 1970 / 80s. Here, according to plans by Werner Glade , red stone-faced houses were built in the early 1980s on today's street Zur Vegesacker Fähre and the new street to the ferry.

On November 24, 1979, the redesigned pedestrian zone in Reeder-Bischoff-Straße was inaugurated with funds from urban development funding .
