Stuff of fairytales. The Bremen Town Musicians.

Stuff of fairytales. The Bremen Town Musicians.

The people of Bremen are proud of their fairytale animals (a donkey, dog, cat and rooster), which are as much an emblem of the city as the town hall and Roland statue, a joint UNESCO World Heritage site. A survey confirmed just how strongly the city and its fairytale are linked in people's minds: nearly a third of Germans spontaneously thought of the Town Musicians when asked about Bremen. This quartet of creatures can be spotted in many different forms in statues all over the city – and on Sundays between May and October they tell their fable live and in full colour on the cathedral square.

Events
The Bremen Freimarkt is one of Germany's oldest fairs, with a history dating back more than 950 years. The main event is the procession on the second Saturday.  In recent times, a feature of the Bremen Freimarkt has been the historical market on Liebfrauenkirchhof where traders dressed in quaint costumes offer their wares and revive the crafts, trickery, music and culinary treats of yesteryear.
