I love Bremen and the city looks like a fairytale. You'll enjoy a perfect walk around the city and find out that it is really amazing... While you are walking you may stumbled into the town musicians. Do not expect to see a great statue, the reality is that it is cute and a nice spot to take a pictures... More

My husband and I both just loved this story as children! It was like a fairytale come true to see this adorable statue for the first time in real life. I think it was the actual fact that both me and my husband adorned this fairytale so much that it was really awe-inspiring and special to rub the donkey's feet.... More

We stumbled on the statue while walking around the city. We rubbed the donkey's legs for good luck. The fun part of the town was seeing all of the artistic variations on the statues.

Lovely statue of donkey, dog, cat and cockerel of Grimm's fairytale. Touch the donkey's front feet for: Good luck, you'll come back to Bremen or whatever you choose to believe. It's situated in the historic centre of this picturesque hanseatic town.

When you visit the city of Bremen, this is probably #1 on your list of the things to see. One knows the story since childhood, and therefore seeing it makes it worthwhile!

When you visit the historic city center, be sure that you won't miss the statue of the Town Musicians (inspired by the fairy tale of Brothers Grimm). It's located left-handed of the Town Hall (when you look at it). The animals are smaller than most visitors expected. Sometimes you have to wait for your photo when the place is crowded.... More

I'm sorry to say/write that but it is not special at all, just a simple statue. It is smaller than I expected, I didn't even realize it until I saw some people taking pictures of the statue.

It was great to see them in real life as the story about Town Musicians of Bremen was one of my favourites when I was a child.

Anyone who grew up in northern Germany knows this monument And the story of it. Kids loved it and it's worth the short trip to Bremen from Hamburg.
