Town Musicians of Bremen (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.

  • Who has visited to the leaning tower of Pisa, who tours to Berlin at the Brandenburg Gate and those who come to Bremen must be come once to the Bremen town musicians! More said actually to do so. More so than the green diamond or the miserable financial situation are these four creatures symbolic of the Hanseatic City. If you missed it is fault. ;-)

  • The Bremen town musicians are not particularly large, but it is always a cluster of tourists before that because who has included his legs on this day lucky the donkey

  • The cutest statue. A must see in Bremen! And then go to Hachez or 4th floor of Karstadt to get souvenirs ❤ Loved it
  • The famous iconic Bremen Musician or Bremer Stadtmusikanten is located in Am Markt Bremen, around the city center, by the Bremer Rathaus. Easy to access and seen on a moving vehicle; tram, cars, etc.
  • It's next to the town hall, which is currently under construction and obstructs the view slightly. The statue itself is smaller than expected and a bit underwhelming.
  • Iconic Bremen. Must see, and have your picture taken off course.
  • Klein aber fein.
