3:31 am
a must and touching the donkey for legs is supposed to be good luck. i want to find out about the fairy tale let's see if some locals can help me. of the freeman town musicians know how i've forgotten come to bremen with me and you can be a town musician. they were animals that were treated badly so they left home we didn't run from souls i'm full of. they settled down in a house where they were robbers and frighten the robbers away. they stayed in this robbers day in the woods but that's because they found a life without hardship reward in liberty and plenty. so the freeman town musicians never made it to brakeman at least not in the fairy tale but their statue has stood in front of the city hall since one thousand nine
3:32 am
hundred fifty three. freeman is full of stories like that today i'm going to discover them and here's what else we have on the show. local shows around crystal river and florida looting with some manatee. second year anton through voight takes us on a hike as big a star. and world. happen on the north sea coasts. the market square lies in the very center of brakemen. this is where stumble upon my next story this statue is called the roland and legend has it that as long as he's here the city will remain free and independent. the statue is
3:33 am
a unesco world heritage site just like the historic city hall across the street. that's why i'm going to take a glimpse inside this remarkable building. i don't. think we have a date. just in we're now in the upper hall one of the most beautiful ceremonial venues in germany and the town hall itself is the oldest in europe that still in its original state you know it's done by one why was this room built what is it used for just. as i thought it was the old town hall is actually a medieval trading center with a wine cellar below it and a covered marketplace and up here an assembly room on the room also served as a court room and the mayor used to be the chief justice. is on the spot anything like i find these model ships below the ceiling especially
3:34 am
impressive they're four to five hundred years old on and they're models like those built by the hunter yacht a clique before the ships were built for real english the. last one is the hands addict weak. league was a confederation of towns that promised each other protection and aid in trade and it was quite a large area it stretched just far as know of the road in russia to norway down to belgium and bremen was a member of the league. if you can how important was it for braman to be as the attic city in a nazi hot are we still call ourselves the huns the arctic city of bremen although the week ended three hundred years ago whatever but the term sounds good many associate it with honesty and straightforwardness and reliability on this and that's why we still use it this way in what's known the sort of. the brave and became quite rich during the middle ages as a trading city and the beautiful town hall is testimony to these wealthy times but of course there's much more to know about the city and we've got you covered.
3:35 am
the old town center is of course the number one tourist attraction in braman but you should also take a trip to the old port district a few kilometers down the river of asia. the former dogs have become a modern residential district. and if you like beer then you're in the right place this is where bax's brewed before it's sold all over the world. football fans also get their money's worth here fair play men have been bundesliga champions four times and won the german cup six times . the people of braman are also proud of their billion see rescuers for more than one hundred fifty years the german maritime search and rescue service has been in
3:36 am
action in the north and baltic scenes come rain or shine. in october and there's the prime market fair one of the biggest folk festivals in germany. the seafarers banquet for merchants and ship captains is a more traditional celebration for centuries it was a male bastion. women were only allowed to spectate until twenty fifteen when they took their place at the table for the first time. and let's face it it's the people of freedom and love a celebration and carnival in february is another big one.
3:37 am
my story searching quest here and braman takes me to the cathedral square they say this is where i'll find the so-called speeding stone and in conspicuous cobblestone with a very interesting history this right here is a site of remembrance for the crimes of geisha got freight back in the nineteenth century she poisoned fifteen people and this is the spot where she was beheaded in eighteen thirty one and still today the local spit on this very stone in order to express their disgust with the killings of got free. this putting stone lies at the foot of the ancient cathedral it's almost one thousand years old. and apparently it's home to a little church mouse made of stone. either i'm bad looking or it's good at hiding.
3:38 am
the pastor ingrid vigil will surely be able to help me can i bother you for a second. to leads me to the vestry. too so here we have the church. it's tiny and just like a real one. one is a deal with a mouse and their various story is the most common one is that in the past the artisans who worked on the churches were supposed to look at them very closely when they travelled through the country. and if they could say where this church mouse was here in the cathedral the master builder knew that they had looked at it properly. so it was to train the workers forwards or stay in iraq this. time around to head over to the city's oldest neighborhood snorre this is where the city's fishermen and sailors used to live and where they manufactured and sold ropes short and the local dialect despite the name of the district now is much more to offer visitors and that is why we're going to check it out.
3:39 am
no one has lots of wonderful little shops to have a poke around in. shops for teddy bears. home knickknacks. and shops that are heaven on earth if you've got a sweet tooth. there's also many a hidden curiosity within schnorrers narrow lanes for instance the smallest house in bremen nearly twenty people used to live here nowadays it sounds patrick's yet another unusual shop. you'll find some famous and infamous figures from braman past in the house of history a sort of living museum here the serial killer gets to got feed is brought back to life. i cooked the meal and put butter with rat poison into it again and gave it
3:40 am
to my children and parents to eight. the street names and also reveal stories from the past. eleven comes from an old word for wired news the battle was a branch of the river visa that flowed through the district the early residents of fisherman and artisans a simple folk in the one nine hundred fifty s. people actually consider. or tearing the district down. nowadays there's scarcely a spot that is now under historical protection like the oldest house in which dates from fourteen o two. you can also spend the night inching along like in this hotel there's just one slight problem it only has one band would you do get a lovely view over the show rooftops.
3:41 am
i've arrived at but just in the middle ages it was an important connection route between the market square and the river valleys or the street got its name from the coopers but and german who used to live here on the street as a whole is listed the red brick architecture is typical for brave men and on but just toss it it is perfectly preserved. in this court yard you'll find the fountain of the seven lazy brothers and of course there's a story behind that to. let them in the lazy brothers were the sons of a local farmer who weren't lack for their hard work they couldn't find a job here in bremen so they went out into the world there they acquired extensive knowledge and experience upon their return they built drainage ditches for their
3:42 am
father's fields the locals dismissed their ideas and accused them of simply being too lazy to work the money grounds today of course we know that they were lazy at all they were just a little ahead of the times. but yes shasta is a street that stimulates the senses your taste buds your eyes and your ears. at the top of every hour thirty porcelain bells play traditional and modern tunes and up in the tower you also. find a visual display to go with the songs. we're now going to leave bremen for a bit and head over to the u.s. state of florida veronica davis took us on a tour of her hometown crystal river and well it got quite wild let's go meet a local. fish my name is veronica and i'm here to
