Cute!

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

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.

If you can't find this little figure just follow the crowd. The figure is standing next to the entrance to the Ratskeller, and just next to there outdoor service. Getting a table there and watching the figure and especially the visitors can be quite funny as the tourists are inventive in their photo shots.

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.
