Just a symbol

It's just a symbol, but many people are attracted. It is said that by touching your dream will come true, so you have some dream in advance.

Probably as must see in Bremen! Situated near the town square the statue is easy to find and great for a few photos!

A nice enough sculpture I suppose. Lots of people like to have their photo taken next to to it. We passed by it twice without realising it was there. Nice for kids but a waste of walking time for adults

Interesting historical center of town Bremen. Nice architecture, well preserved (and well restored after II WW, I guess). Musician of Bremen are present anywhere, they are symbol of this town.

As a symbol of bremen it was one of the first thing i visited in Bremen during my Erasmus semester. I was a fan of the cartoon as a child, so i was happy to see the statue of the musician.

Tourist attraction tucked into a corner next to a "cathedral' looking classic building. If you don't look for it you can miss it but its an important part of the city. There are various bakeries around the market, try everything baked.

This was beside the Rathaus and was a bit smaller than I expected but a very good sculpture of an old story by the Grimm brothers. The donkey's hooves and nose have been well polished by people rubbing them.

Seems strange to review something so small but it really is a sweet little sculpture, just outside the town hall you could easily miss it when the Christmas markets are set up. Plenty of people taking photos and holding the donkey's legs for luck, just waiting to see if I win the lottery!!! There's also statues of pigs and a... More

So many tourists only hold one leg - you need to hold both to really bring good luck. Unfortunately I have not managed to testify the luckiness of this - but I count my blessing everyday and have rated this 4 out of 5.
