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.

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. It was great to see how people of all ages eager to touch the donkey's legs (for luck?). The statue is not very big and easy to miss, especially in the middle of... More

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

We found ourselves crowing "kill-the-robber-do" all around Bremen... Rub the donkey for good luck! And read the story to your kids before going to Bremen. They will love it!
