Bremer Stadtmusikanten is a bronze statue of four stacked animals by Gerhard Marcks depicting the Town Musicians of Breman. In the lore of the Brothers Grimm, a donkey, dog, cat, and rooster left their farms and owners, deciding to head off together--as their own masters--to become musicians. Along their journey to Breman, they notice burglars in a cottage. They stand on one another's backs to see in the window, making a racket to scare away the burglars. Long story short: The animals end up living in the cottage (which isn't actually in Breman), fat and happy, for the rest of their days. Similar statues are in front of each of Germany's five veterinary schools. Put Bremer Stadtmusikanten on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Bremen holiday site.

  • A must in Bremen, and beautifully located right in the center near the main square.. A bit of a tourist-magnet but it’s worth it… nicely done

  • Next to the Ratskeller. Nice for a picture. You'll have to hold both front legs of the donkey for good luck. You can follow metal dots in the street for a walk through the whole old city.

  • We have the most amazing time around Bremen, the wine and food from the rathaus keller were the best in our trip. Be sure to walk through the small streets and hidden corridors.
  • The stars of Bremen and situated within the town hall. There are restaurants to dine in in and around the area, as well as the St Catherine's Church nearby. Gift shops are also a stone throw away for those looking to buy gifts for friends and family.
  • Famous statue of the famous fairy tail by the Brothers Grimm. It's a symbol of the city, and can be found on almost every souvenir. Near the statue there were a queue of people who wanted to take a photo with it. Statue is interesting but it gets too much attention although there are others interesting places in the city. Also, there is an interesting attaction related to the Town Musicians of Bremen on the Market square - Bremen Hole. It's a special manhole with a hole, after putting there a coin you can hear the voice of one of the Bremen Musicians.
  • It's a beautiful City, please visit it.
  • Very interesting place. Beautiful views and sights.
