Probably one of the top three symbols of Bremen, if not even number one. The famous statue of the donkey, dog, cat, and rooster - four friends from our childhood. The Town Musicians of Bremen are located just in the city center and are one of a must-see in Bremen.

Make a wish while holding the legs of the donkey and apparently it will come true. The Bremen musicians are commemorated in numerous places throughout the city centre but this is the most popular. Look out also for the 'singing' grate in the ground nearby and throw in some coins to see what happens!

It's like finally to get reached in realit the destination point you 100000 times reached when being a child. Interesting monument, actually the most significant in Bremen. Be quickly to make photos because of a lot of people around.

I want tonsay that if you visit Bremen, you must not miss this place. This is the relationship of Donkey, Dog, Cat, Rooster. It was a fairy tale from Grimm Brothers. I got introduction to this place by the Bremen tourist office. Best regards, Dr. Vorravee Pattaravongvisut Man on the Move

This statue was hard to find when we visited in July 2016, amidst construction work and scaffolding! It was pretty small and swamped with tourists lining up to get their picture with it. Unless you want to wait 20+ minutes for a photo with this mediocre statue, then forget it.

There isn´t much to say about it, once you know from where it comes and what it designates. I was a bit disappointed, but still happy to finally see it real!

We had come to Bremen for the christmas market & experienced the true holiday feeling of a small town in Germany. These 4 animals statue symbolic the old tale of the town musician, everyone should have a photo taken with them & place both hands on the donkey's front feet in order to bring you the good fortune that someday...
