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.

Since my childhood i loved the story about four friends. Coming to Bremen this year, i learned that they were a symbol of national unity and strength.

This is of course the main symbol of Hamburg and so it is important to visit. But it was very small and with the Christmas Market on in the square it was very difficult to find. However, it is important to go and see it. Please be patient if you want to get a photo taken as there are many... More
