Bremen, a city in northwestern Germany, promoted its tourist attractions at the World Expo yesterday.
Bremen is a city inspired by Grimm Brothers' fairy tale, said Heiner Heseler, Bremen's economic and harbor minister. The city's symbol is a bronze sculpture by Gerhard Marcks, called "Die Stadtmusikanten" (Town Musicians). It portrays the donkey, dog, cat and rooster, all characters in Grimm Brothers' fairy tale.
Bremen also boasts cutting-edge science and technologies and visitors can find the most advanced assembly lines of Mercedes-Benz, Heseler said.
The city attracts more than 2,000 Chinese tourists each year.
The Bremen Pavilion at Expo's Urban Best Practices Area showcases urban mobility solutions and climate change research.
