The Town Musicians of Bremen – Germany


A bronze statue depicting the Bremen Town Musicians located in Bremen.
  “Note the front hooves that have become shiny. 
Touching the front hooves is said to make wishes come true.”

…and some views of the famous “Böttcherstraße”.

  7. It must be beautiful place! Will have to visit soon. The town musicians are so funny!
    I'm happy that your trip was nice – I'm the same, Leia, every time I'm back I feel a bit disorganized and tired:)
    Is still raining?
    Here the situation is horrible, can you imagine that there's flood in many places, and still torrential rain!

  8. I remember having learned this legend when I was learning german at school. i like the different artistic visions of it!
    In Firenze(Italy) there's a statue of a wild boar. If you touch it you come back to the city . he also has a shiny nose ! (and it works: I went back!!)
    Hugs!

  13. Dearest Luna!! Your mommy and daddy sure do see so much of our homecountry. We thank you with all our heart for showing us these precious snap shots. How we wish we could spend a little time wandering the cobblestone pathways with you….The Bremen Town Musicians are a favorite fairytale of ours. Maybe someday you will see our hometown of Augsburg in Bavaria…it is over 2000 years old, the second oldest city in Germany and named in honor of Augustus Ceasar.
    Thank you for your friendship…you are kind and gentle and we love your hearts…
