Upon learning that Bremen was in fact the namesake for the Grimm's Fairy Tale Bremen Town Musicians, I couldn’t resist investigating the town. Only an hour drive/train ride from Hamburg, Bremen is a fantastic choice for a quick trip on Germany’s Fairy Tale road. Nestled on the Weser river, this Hanseatic destination is full of surprises.
