My Postcrossing (10) – Freie Hansestadt Bremen, Germany

none Time to discover the world by Postcrossing again! This time, I received a postcard from Bremen. There are four tourist spots on the postcard!
I didn’t know Breman well. I only know Werder Breman lol. So I spent some time to understand the four spots. Let’s start from the upper left.
又是從明信片看世界的時候了!這次收到一位住在不來梅的老伯伯寄來的明信片,明信片上有著4個不來梅的著名景點!
哈哈,我對不來梅不太熟識,只知道它是德國的一個城市,還有雲達不來梅,故為了了解這4個景點是什麼地方,我又做了一番搜查!讓我們先看看左上角的那幅圖。

It’s the statue of Bremen Roland which is in the market square of Bremen. Roland is the hero of the Song of Roland, an important epic poem In the Middle Age. Roland was a Frankish military leader under Charlemagne. Under the spread of laterature and poem, Roland is a representation of the Middle Age.
這幅圖上顯示的是不來梅的羅蘭像,在不來梅市政廳的前面。羅蘭是中世紀文學《羅蘭之歌》中的英雄,在歷史上他是法蘭克帝國的將軍,在文學和詩歌的傳播下,他成為了歐洲中世紀的代表人物之一。
On the upper right, you should know what it is if you have watched Grimms’ Fairy Tales. Yes! It is the Town Musicians of Bremen! In the story, a hen, a cat, a dog and a donkey planned to form a band in Breman. Se there it is, beside the Bremen City Hall.
再來是右上角的這幅圖,如果你小時候有看格林童話,你應該能夠猜出來,它就是不來梅的樂隊!在不來梅的樂隊故事中,雞、貓、狗、驢打算到不來梅組樂隊,故現在不來梅市政廳的左側,就有著這個雕塑。很多人認為摸摸驢的前腿許願,願望就會實現,故大家會看到雕塑中驢的前腿已被摸得發亮。
On the lower left photo, we see a golden sculpture. It is the symbol of Böttcherstraße. Böttcherstraße is a very old art street. It is believed that Alchemist in the 15th century worked in the street. In the early 20th century, a coffee trader renovated the street into the shopping street, in the style of the Middle Age. Now, now artists and crafters move to the street.
在左下角的圖中,我們看到一個金色雕塑,這是貝特夏街道的象徵。貝特夏街道是一條很古老的藝術街,相傳十五世紀時的鍊金術師都在這裡工作!後來二十世紀初期一名咖啡商把這裡以中世紀特式重建成一條購物街,現時很多手工藝及藝術家都來了這裡,讓這裡充萬文藝氣息。
Finally on the lower right photo, it’s the Wallanlagen, which means wall park. The windmill is the symbol of the park.
右下角的,就是城牆公園了,這風車已成為公園的icon,十分值得大家參觀。
I feel Bremen is very fantastic just from web searching. That’s why people call Bremen the “City of Fairy Tale”!

我只上網看,已覺得不來梅十分夢幻,實不負其童話之都的稱號!
