Day 40. Bremen, GermanySeptember 13, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C
Horst drove to bring Vera to us for breakfast. Nice leisurely breakfast together.
Off for a walk in Bremen. We went to the Market Square. I bought 5 figs for 2€. This main square is surrounded with magnificent buildings. The statue of Roland has been cleaned so we had another photo with him. Also a photo holding the feet for good luck of the Bremen Musicians (famous Grimms fairy tale about being able to achieve more if you work as a team with others than as an individual and being able to cope better if surrounded with friends).
We walked to the Böttcherstrasse Museum to see the top floor hall used by the SS to train in the Spiritualism of Atlantis however it is closed until Sunday while they set up for an exhibition “Ich bin Ich” by Paula Modersohn-Becker.
The Bremen Roland is a statue of Roland, erected in 1404. It stands in the market square of Bremen, Germany, facing the cathedral, and shows Roland, paladin of the first Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne and hero of the Battle of Roncevaux Pass.Read more
