Hi Tks. Yes, paving blocks can be installed on top of concrete, without mortar, if you first lay down a half-inch to one inch bed of coarse sand. The process is nearly identical to laying a paver patio over ground. Good luck Tks. I hope you are well.
You can etch the existing concrete and then lay the patio pavers. If the concrete is in good shape, you could stain a pattern on it that looks like pavers.
Hello. This can be an exciting upgrade. Here’s a link that should be helpful hope this helps
Where are you thinking about putting pavers over concrete?
Would this be for a walkway, driveway, patio, etc. ?
If there is going to be weight moving on the pavers, In order to ensure that they stay firmly in position, they will need to be supported around the perimeter. If not, then the weight will cause them to begin shifting, falling off the concrete, and crumbling.
Can pavers be installed over concrete?
Pavers have an elegant look when correctly installed can last a lifetime and are much easier to repair than traditional poured concrete or asphalt. With proper installation, concrete pavers can be installed over existing poured concrete slabs if they're in relatively good condition.Aug 9, 2018

You can as long as the concrete is in good condition to start.
Yep absolutely, as long as the concrete is in good condition. You could always do a floor leveling compound over the concrete to make it smoother to work with too.
You'd want to make sure it's stable and not going to shift, that could be dangerous
I might try to build up the sides and then put in a layer of sand to give your pavers a solid base.
Make up a mortar mix and use a dab of mix in each corner and one in the middle and place tile down on top of concrete. Use a spirit level to make sure they are even. Butt up close together or leave a space for pointing or gravel. Best wishes.
I do a lot of bricks and pavers and honestly if you want the project to look great for many years it it worth the time to take the old away and give your new bricks a nice bed to rest on
HI TKS: If the concrete is flat, there shouldn't be a problem. If it's raised or sunken, you will have problems. You will have to address those areas before doing anything. Good luck
I agree that you should probably remove the old concrete first.
