a story telling spot

if you expect something really big, this is not it. It is just next to the city hall's basement. The statue is a great opportunity to tell the story to your young children.

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

The cute statue of the four animals is situated next to the town hall and gives you the chance to get some nice souvenir pictures!

My wife's family is from here. Having travelled here many times, we always make a trip and visit the Bremer Stadtmusikanten. You hold on to the ankles of the Donkey and make a wish. So far all of ours have come true. In the town square and lots of sites to see.

One can see everywhere Town Musicans of Bremen. Originally one can find it next to Rathaus, but at souvenier stores there are a lot of different kind of things that have those four animals.
