The Town Musicians of Bremen is a symbol from the brother Grimm folk tale. The 4 animals: a donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster walk to the town of Bremen to play music, but on the way they encounter a gang of robbers. By standing on top of each other, they are able to scare of the robbers, and they discover that this way they are much stronger. The animals find the house of the robbers, and they find it so nice they decide to stay there, and not go to Bremen. Today the statue is the symbol of Bremen, and it stands outside the old town hall.
