Bremen, Market Square Panorama
We spent the day in Bremerhaven and Bremen. Bremerhaven is the site of the emigration museum. Over 7 million Europeans (most of them Germans) emigrated to the Americas from Bremen. The museum gives the visitor a feeling for what that experience might have felt like. After Bremerhaven, we spent the afternoon in Bremen, a member city of the Hanseatic League, an organization of cities that fostered trade and helped bring the Middle Ages to an end in northern Germany.

Making a wish at the statue of the Bremen Town Musicians
On the steps of City Hall in Bremen.
I hope this wish comes true.
So many wishes!
Legend has it that you can make a wish at the statue of the Bremen Town Musicians. (It’s a fairytale.)
