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.

This a charming statue that is used as the symbol for the lovely town of Bremen, Germany. It is in the historic district so it is easy to find. Most of Bremen's attractions worth seeing are in its historic district. Makes a nice photo when visiting.

Nice statue of the Bremen symbol, must see when visiting Bremen, you can find also other version of it. But to be honest the state of Bremen musician in Riga (gift from the Bremen city) is nicer.

It's hard to imagine visiting Bremen without spending a few minutes with this statue. Was it a bit underwhelming after all the hype? Maybe. But there is also something charming and also amusing about such a simple little statue gaining so much fame and interest. Crowds gather around it politely waiting out their turn at a photo.

Must see when in Bremen but possibly a little over-rated! Good picture opportunity and lots of souvenirs of the statue available to buy !
