The City of Bremen is a Hanseatic city in northwestern Germany. The Old Town Hall was built in 1409 and renovated in the 17th century. It was especially designed to act as a Town Hall, and used this way over the ages. With next to it the St. Peter's Cathedral.

The Roland statue is 5,55 meter high and dates from 1404. It stands in front of the Town Hall, but faces sidewards to the church. Roland statues can be found in a number of German towns, they represent market rights and freedom.

 They have been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2004.
