Relatively new small statue of the musics of Bremen, nothing special. Hold both legs of the donkey at the same time or you could be mocked.

Searched the square today until we found these guys. Nose and legs if the donkey are well worn .... must be good luck to rub! Surrounded in scaffolding today, so not in its full glory.

It does feel like an imperative to at least view this statue. However it is rather small and a bit underwhelming. It might be an idea to give some narrative about the story as there is none.

A nice statue that was easy to find. There were a few other people as well, but that didn't bother me :D Touch the foot of the donkey! It gives you good luck.

Ok, I guess this is the original sculpture, but it will only be valuable to you as an attraction if you have read the underlying failrytale by the Grimm brothers: http://germanstories.vcu.edu/grimm/bremereng.html In the Schnoor and other places, on postcards, etc. you'll see other (comical!) versions of this musical group.

In Bremen, you can find the musicians in different shapes all over town. This one is not my favourite. Not that it's not a nice statue, but I really don't see the hype. It's something you could easily miss. In fact, we struggled to even find it...

Really nice and you have to make your wish while holding the two front legs of the donkey, unfprtunately when we went the city hall was under maintanance and the pictues where not so perfect, but you should go and make your wish

The staue is disapointingly small and avarage, but that's mainly because my expectations were to high, probably...

They could have definitely chosen a better place where to set it up. Being the symbol of Bremen, I would have expected more emphasis on it. Instead, it's just a small statue in an almost-hidden corner, sometimes overcrowded with people waiting to take a picture.
