Summer 2019 marks the 200th anniversary of the second edition of the Grimm fairytales, the first time the story of the fearless four appeared. The fairytale festivities will take place from March to October. From 23 March to 1 September 2019.

Exhibitions, festivals and more mark the bicentenary of the fairytale’s publication
“Come with us to Bremen, there’s no better place to be.” This is how the Bremen Town Musicians sang the city’s praises in the Brothers Grimm fairytale. The tale is not only well-known around the world but also remains very topical. A unique quartet of four very different individuals sets off on a heroic journey, each contributing what they are best at – it is the perfect example of teamwork.

The people of Bremen are proud of their fairytale animals, which are as much an emblem of the city as the town hall and Roland statue, a joint UNESCO World Heritage site.

The fairytale festivities will take place from March to October. From 23 March to 1 September 2019, for example, Bremen’s Kunsthalle art gallery will host a special exhibition that explores the portrayal of the four animals in everything from painting, visual and graphic art to marketing and the souvenir trade.

Various major events in the city, such as Museums Night on 25 May 2019 and Heritage Day on 8 September 2019, will be inspired by the Bremen Town Musicians and feature themes based on the anniversary.
There will also be an opportunity to see the donkey, cat, dog and rooster live at the Town Musicians Play on cathedral square in the city centre. Further highlights include special guided tours, while plans for a big Town Musicians Festival along the Weser river in July are in full swing. The programme also features many other events and activities where visitors can join in, listen, watch, be amazed and have fun.
