I wasn't familiar with this tale until now. Interesting story. Very famous statue right next to the Town Hall. Lots of people lined up to take pictures with it

A well known German fairy tale. Apparently if you rub on the donkey both front legs, your wishes are said to come true. Hence, you'll see the donkey shining front legs.

Located at the corner of the Frauen Kirche, it might be easily missed on a crowded day, but most of the times you will see a lot of people surrounding the statue waiting to take picture, tips for picture taking is to go there on a weekday morning around 9 o'clock, we were there in two days morning on a weekday and there were nobody there. And don't miss the Hole of Bremen's Musicians, where you can throw a coin and hear the sound of either one of the four musicians. It is in front of the Rathaus, look for the sign.

This quirky statue is in front of the cathedral. In fact in the Brothers Grimm fairy tale the animals never made it to Bremen! An ageing donkey, dog, cat and rooster decide to become town musicians, fed up with being mistreated by their owner and set off for a better life in Bremen, but en route they encounter and succeed in foiling a group of robbers. They take the robbers' gold and end up living happily ever after. You'll notice the donkey's front legs are shiny: people grasp them for luck.

It's a statue with a story behind it but not much more than that. It does seem like it's a must see in Bremen though.

These are a very popular sight just off the market square. Popular with visitors unsure what they are about.

In the old city square, right around the city catedrale, picturesque sculpture of Grimm brothers' tale. Touching donkey's legs brings good luck and takes back to the childhood...

This statue is definitelly must see in Bremen. Before all the tourists arrive you may see a lot of people coming and touchning it. I don't know if it supposed to bring good luck or if there is anything else behind but it was interesting to watch them. Later when the old town gets filled by tourists it might not be easy to take a picture as everybody wants to have it.

This sculpture is a symbol of the free hanseatic city of Bremen. It is in the city centre so expect many tourists and locals to take photos and selfies over there. Must see when in town.
