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.

Nice little piece to see. It gets very busy and you'll find it hard to take any pictures or spend any time here if you go here at lunch or early evening. Best advice head here early morning, 8am...

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.
