Bremer Loch

The “Bremen hole,” a coin slot in a (beautiful) cast bronze donation box disguised as a manhole cover among the cobblestones in Bremen’s town square. If you drop a coin in, you’ll hear recordings of the Brementown musicians, activated by a photo cell.

(BRAY mah   LOCHH.)

Goldesel

“Gold donkey,” the German equivalent of a cash cow.

(GOLD eh zel.)

Wenn es dem Esel zu wohl wird, geht er aufs Eis tanzen

“When life gets too good for the donkey, he goes dancing on the ice.”

(Venn ess dame AY zel tsoo vole veered, gate er owfs ICE tant sen.)
