The place is calm and so impressive. Once you go to Schnoor you feel like a ancient tail character. Colors of the houses are beautiful.

Nothing more, nothing less- A MUST IN BREMEN. Take a guided tour to find out more about the sculpture and the history of the city. If you are supersticious, you should make a wish while holding the legs of the donkey- both handed:))

It's like Austrians capitalizing on Mozart, or the Dutch making big bucks on Van Gogh. You'll see these funny musicians everywhere (but only the animals) stacked in a pyramid - in restaurant menus, on t-shirts, fridge magnets, chocolate bars, perpetuated in bronze, stone, wood, mural paintings, jigsaw puzzles, pumpking carvings, playing cards, soft toys and even as a pattern on...

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.
