Bremen Town Musicians - Great Attractions (Bremen, Germany)

John The Main Main Jones

Take a tour of Bremen Town Musicians in Bremen, Germany – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.<br /><br /> What are a donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster doing together in Bremen? Becoming musicians, of course.<br /><br />The bronze statue, standing on the street of Bremen since 1953, recalls the Brothers Grimm story of four good-natured animals.<br /><br />As Grimm folklore speaks of morals and virtue, the story of the Bremen Town Musicians is a symbol of freedom from oppression.<br /><br />The story goes that the noble animals, unwanted on their farms, ventured off to find freedom and artistry, their destination being Bremen.<br /><br />Though the tale has many variations, the characters are always a donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster.<br /><br />It is said that rubbing the donkey's hooves on the street in Bremen makes wishes come true.
