Lots of slightly different statues dedicated to fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm are dotted around this beautiful and fascinating city . There are now even modern " takes" on the originals! Probably better keeping a look out for the various statues as you walk around, rather than doing a statue trail Although the statue of Roland is regarded as... More

You will find the Bremer stadtmusikanten everywhere in the city centre - post cards, magnets, paintings and this very nice sculpture - which makes them the theme of the city. The location of the statue is of course perfect, next to the Rathaus. The statue itself is very nice and a must-see. The front hooves of the donkey have become... More

Find these statues, dedicated to a fairy tale by The Brothers Grimm, dotted around the city. Each statue is different and well worth searching them out!

It's a famous statue and is associated with this city. All of us have read a famous story written by the Brothers Grimm "The Town Musicians of Bremen" and it feels really cool to actually see the famous statue and feel like you are in a fairy tale again :-) It is located in a lovely market area in Old...

Charming , quirky little statue in the market square which has become the emblem of Bremen. Bronze statue has become burnished in places where so many people touch it for luck as they pose for pictures by it .

The town musicians is the famous statue in town square and a definite must to visit and photograph. The buildings surrounding it are so cute you really get the feeling like you are in a fairy tale!

The bronze statue of the Town Musicians of Bremen is 2 meters high. It was created in 1951 by a German sculptor Gerhard Marcks (Bauhaus master), erected in 1953, and it is the most famous representation of the Bremen Town Musicians, a real logo of the city. It stands next to the Town Hall, to the west of it (near... More

Weather is very cold, as it is located in the North of Germany, close to Hamburg. I really liked the Bremen Cup Cakes, very tasty, lots of different bakeries. Great German beers at good prices
