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.
