The Pied Piper and the historical old town of Hamelin
An absolute highlight for visitors of Hamelin is the historic old town. It’s for good reason that experts describe the historic city center as the jewel of the Weser Renaissance: half-timbered buildings restored with a sense of proportion and attention to detail, magnificent facades, and winding alleys characterize the cityscape.
Architectural eye-catchers of the historic old town are the majestic market church St. Nicolai and the Hochzeitshaus with its famous carillon – and of course the Rattenfängerhaus, only a few minutes away, whose more than 400-year-old facade has been preserved to this day. An inscription on a wooden beam of this landmark tells of the legend to which the Pied Piper House owes its name.
