Bremen Town Musicians, The

About the Story

Bremen Town Musicians, The “The Town Musicians of Bremen” is a German folktale that was recorded by Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859) and his brother, Jacob Grimm (1785-1863). A statue of the Bremen musicians, which depicts the donkey, dog, cat, and rooster (pictured below), was erected in Bremen, Germany, in 1953 to commemorate this much-loved tale. The Grimm brothers began collecting folktales in 1807 and published their first collection of tales in 1812 entitled Kinder- und Hausmärchen (“Children’s and Household Tales”). Some of their most famous tales include “Cinderella,” “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Snow White,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” “The Tortoise and the Hare,” “Hansel and Gretel,” and “Beauty and the Beast.”
