Know the story.

A bit confused to see so many people around the statue. Connected to public WiFi to find out the interesting fairy tale.

If you are going to Bremen, you must read about...and then visit, the musicians of Bremen! The statue is not large (and when I was there it was somewhat hidden by construction) but very nice. When wandering about Aldstadt it's worth a look (and a touch).

Right next to the unesco sites. A beautiful place to visit and see architecture and history. Mid Roman Barock architecture is breathtaking

City center is nice but nothing terrific to see. The Bremen Stadtmusikanten statue is tiny and always surrounded by tourists. I personally wasn't all that impressed but appreciate some would find it charming. Only stayed overnight for a connection flight so had about 5 hours to walk around the old city center.

I remember that the story of this statue was among the first that I learned at elementary school, so for me that was a MUST see landmark to complete the circle of one of my beloved stories. The statue is genuinely beautiful made, and it is considered one of the sehenswürdigkeiten that tourists should see whenever they come to Bremen.

It's only a statue, but all the postcards seems to have these animals. Wish they have pictures from town more.

Well, not much to expect from this story. In riga a similar version of this exists and there is nothuing to do with this story around the place except souveniers.

Cute statue in the center of Bremen which is the town's main symbol. Easy to miss if you come in the wrong way as it is smaller than i expected but you have to see it

When in Bremen you are meant to hold the Bremen donkeys legs for luck. There must be a lot of luck to go round as there was a queue. Apparently the donkey, dog , cat and cockrell never made it to Bremen so it looks like their luck ran out. Good for a laugh and a photo opportunity
