Who doesn’t know the story of the Bremen Town Musicians from the Grimm collection of fairytales? Yet it is not alone this story that has carried the name of the city throughout the whole world.
Bremen – a city looking back on a thousand-year history.
Nowhere is this more evident than on the market square, an impressive witness to Bremen’s past. Round the Roland statue, which has symbolized Bremen’s freedom for more than 600 years, you can see the legacy of power and splendour from centuries.
The Gothic Town Hall with its majestic Renaissance facade is centre as well as meeting place. Freedom and independence are hallmarks of which the citizens of Bremen are proud.
Tolerance and cosmopolitan point of view underlie the fundamental nature of the city.
“We are off to Bremen!”
said the four Bremen Town Musicians. But the fairytale of the Bremen Town Musicians is not all that the city has to tell. There is a lot more to see.
Welcome to Bremen!
