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.

    What a beautiful city and definitely worth a visit. Place especially known for the Pied Piper of Hameln. Is used in all kinds of ways to "knick knacks to sell".

Beautiful square, the Town Hall and beautiful show of the Magic Theatre. Wherever there is a magical atmosphere that abstracts you from the problems of the world and of reality and it takes you back baby ...
