Small, but still symbolic

The iconic Bremen musicians are tucked in the shadow of the town hall - busy at certain times of the day with tourists taking photos but as only a quick stop is required you wont have to wait long

Finally have chance to see the statute of one of famous children folklore. Unfortunately the statute is located in a corner of the plaza. But anyway, I am glad that there is a statute for the folklore I have known since my child time.

This strange statue is located within the City center, one hint... close to the main center of worship.. the story or the Bremen folklore is worth the search

You must see this if you're near the town square. Nice to have you're photograph taken with. Gets a good crowd doing the same.
