Nice statue

From the well known German Brothers Grimm tale of the city musicians of bremen, here is the statue of that tale and is meant to bring good luck if you give it a rub!

You can't really see the old town of Bremen without a photo opp with the four animals who supposedly left their day jobs in the countryside to become musicians in Bremen. Be sure to hold both paws of the jackass in your selfie or else...

Situated just off the Main Square this statue depicts the characters from the famous Fairytale. Its very popular and you do have to wait to get a "special "photo. But a lot of fun.

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!

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 .
