The Roland statue has a striking effect. It looks somewhat odd so you can't keep your eyes of it. Not so many statues from this period still exist.. So enjoy

Ronald "the Giant" statue is on the market square, just in front of the old town hall. You can't miss it. Something for a picture.

Great statue and well worth seeing. Lots of people milling about in the square this afternoon so it wasn't easy getting the perfect picture. Well worth visiting this statue.

The large statue of Roland was erected in the Bremen Marktplaz in 1404. He was a warrior of the first Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne and is said to be the “protector of Bremen city”. It’s quite impressive and very well preserved to be that old.

It's amazing that this stone stature survived WWII, much less thousands of years. It's right opposite the Cathedral - in the Town Square.

If you are at the centre of Bremen you cannot miss this statue. It is the heights Roland statue of all the statues that are existing. Between the two spills of his legs is an old length measurement.
