Bremer Stadtmusikanten, Bremen

4.0
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.

    Of course looking at the Bremen town musicians, if you've been here. Had I imagined greater. Standing almost squeezed a little bit in the corner and doesn't really come to the fore. But what doesn't change their history. Could not leave it there to pose with a HSV Cap.

    Pretty little old town if you don't have much time to spare you can visit in a few hours. Pleasant and with very competitive prices on bar placed right behind the musicians. The Centre has left me a nice reminder though a shower she thoroughly washed.

    All right, you're in Bremen and the 4 musicians are an integral part of the city's history. That said, the work itself is fairly insignificant and even if you lose, you will sleep peacefully anyway

    A very popular place for pictures, turning the fairy tale of the Bremen town musicians into a statue

    I am always surprised when foreigners tell me they know of course the fairytale. Definitely a must see and a good foto spot.

    It's just an open place with a statue of the famous musicians from the book. There is another statue nearby which is more attractive for kids and I dare you to find it.
