The Bremen Town Hall and the Bremer Cathedral at Christmas are the main motifs of this his beautifully detailed large advent calendar.
The Bremen Town Hall is the most important Gothic building in Europe. For more than 600 years, the political fortunes of the oldest European city republic in the free Hanseatic city of Bremen have been designed here. Bremen, we all know in early childhood, because the "Bremer Stadtmusikanten" is one of the most beautiful fairy tales of the brothers Grimm.
Bremen's "city musicians" have hidden themselves both on the cover picture and behind the windows of this German advent calendar.
The detailed picture has 24 little doors to open. Each door has a little picture behind it. The tradition is to open one door each day from December 1 thru December 24. Children love to open a door a day as they count down to Christmas.
