The model to touch makes the architecture of Bremen's old town tangible for blind people. On the east side of the Bremen Parliament and next to the attraction "Bremen Hole" is a bronze model of Bremen's old town. It offers people with and without visual impairments a nice overview of the city center. The model is wheelchair-accessible and depicts the houses and streets at a scale of 1:750. The bronze is the work of artist Felix Brörken, who spent months handcrafting the miniature cities.
