Lovely little statue, that will most certainly bring a smile on young and old alike, especially if they are familiar with the fairy tale "Town Musicians of Bremen". Legend says that if you hold the front two legs of the donkey, it will bring you good luck for the whole year! :)

After so many years of being read bedtime stories as a child in Australia, it was great to see the real statue in person. We now have read the same story to our Grand children

Bremen's iconic symbol, this statue is probably more famous among the tourists than the more historic statue of Roland (it is a UNESCO world heritage site) located 100 m away! Hold the front two feet of the donkey and make a wish, and they say it will come true!

Bremen children grow up with the tale of the Bremer Stadtmusikanten. The statue is smaller than you think, and somewhat hidden in a corner. Still, it is a lovey tale, and it is nice seeing the statue (and its central and free).

There once was a man who had a donkey which had carried his sacks to the mill for many long years but was now getting old and weak so that he was becoming more and more unfit for work. The donkey's master was considering whether to stop feeding him but the donkey noticed that there was an ill wind blowing... More

Such an iconic statue not to be missed. It is slightly smaller than one might expect, but the donkey's front paws are well rubbed by happy travellers who want to ensure they return to Bremen. Make time to buy a book and read the fable of how the four animals decided to make their way to Bremen.

Lovely centre to Bremen, but rating the stadtmusikanten on its own merits, it really isnt up to much. Queue up, take your photo and move on!
