Hameln Old Town, Hameln
(4.7/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Step into the story of the Pied Piper at Hameln Old Town. The famous Brothers Grimm story has its origins in Hamelin, whose historic area brings the story to life. The 16th- to 18th-century sandstone and half-timbered houses create a backdrop for street cafes, restaurants, and beer gardens. As the town's claim to fame, the figure of the Pied Piper can be found around nearly every corner--look for him on building displays, or seek out his statue. If you're lucky enough to be in town on a summer Sunday, don't miss the re-enactment of the old legend in the main square.

  • Townhouses, museums, shops - always worth visiting the old town of Hamelns. The cityscape is alone worth a visit.

  • This is a great place to visit with very olds buildings that are very well maintained. The Xmas market is worth a trip 
  • Particularly worth mentioning is that you can visit the city on foot and must. The old town is pedestrianised. So you have enough time to look closely at the houses. They are built in the style of the Weser Renaissance and they are magnificently restored. It is a pleasure to see the colorful sculptures and drawings. Of course, there are enough guest houses to enjoy after the tour. Try it once. You will not regret it.
