Most people remember the famous Brothers Grimm tale the Town Musicians of Bremen and the animated movie based on it. The fun-loving animals and the young troubadour – the tale’s protagonists – have become the symbols of this city. However, Bremen has so much more to offer than that. Here, Travel on Spot presents a few interesting facts to help you get better-acquainted with this German city.

*Bremen is the capital of Germany’s smallest federal state bearing the same name, which consists of only two cities. Regardless of its size, however, it has the largest population of all German states, and a record number of millionaires.

*A silver key – an attribute of St. Peter – figures at the centre of Bremen’s coat of arms.

*The Roland Statue, which has been standing in the Market Square since 1404, is considered the main symbol of Bremen. According to legend, Roland protects the city from bad luck.

*Bremen is the final stop of the German Fairy Tale Route, which is a 600-kilometre-long path that begins in Hanau – the birthplace of the Brothers Grimm.

*The City’s most famous 100-metre-long street, called Böttcherstrasse, has only seven buildings, among which are the houses and fountains of Robinson Crusoe, Atlantis and the Seven Lazy Brothers.

*It is the birthplace of the real-word Robinson Crusoe – the famous literary character of Daniel Defoe.

*Bremen is known for its football club FC Werder, which has won the German Cup four times – quite an achievement in a country that’s mad about football.

*Bremen has a unique 46-hectare rhododendron park with many species of this plant.

*At the end of every October, Bremen hosts the country’s oldest festival-fair, called Freimarkt, which attracts millions of people every year.
