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.

  • Great old buildings and a class historic old town. Unfortunately little shop, belonging to any chain.

  • Stroll through HAMELN, the lovingly renovated houses are striking again and again. The Carillon at the wedding House is always an attraction. Explanations to what is located at every historic house. Parkhaus "Pied Piper Hall" is just 3 minutes from the pedestrian zone, very handy. Many Cafés and restaurants.

  • A must visit place, great architecture and old buildings. We had a brisk walk around as a stopping place on our trip from Berlin to Albert (Somme).
