Infested with tourists, but a must-see when you're in Bremen. This statue IS Bremen. Read up on the story beforehand. Touch the donkeys mule for good luck - if you're lucky enough to get close enough to it!

This is also in the middle of old City, near the St Petri Dom and Central Market. You can see which is the legend of Town Musicians of Bremen. :)

Bremen cannot be without a statue like this. But the statue in itself is not that beautiful in a city full of beautiful statues. And one sees this trademark everywhere, so one knows it before one sees it. No surprise...

You simply have to have a photo in front of this statue. It represents the four friends from Grim Brothers' fairy tale. The bronze statue was made in 1953 but the legend is ancient.
