Travel Tips for Hameln

The Market Church of St. Nicolai

by LysDor

The market is located in the old part of Hameln and surrounded by many beautiful houses in Wesser Renaissance style!*

We did not have much time to visit but managed to see the old center as we still had a long way to drive to Brussels.

Anyway, even if it was a rainy and cold day, I found the place extremely charming.

Maybe it was that strange legend and the rat trails painted on the street that had something to do with my mood :-)

Hameln is famous for it´s beautiful old town

by chancay

and of course for the Pied Piper of Hamelin.

Here´s the story about it:

It was the year 1284 when a strange and wondrous figure arrived in Hameln. He was attired in a coat of many colours and pretending to be a rat catcher he promised to free the town of a plague of rats and mice for a fixed sum of money.

The citizens pledged to pay him his fee, so the visitor produced a pipe and began to play. And soon all the rats and mice came running out of the houses and gathered around the Pied Piper in a teeming mass. Once convinced that each and every one followed, he went out of the town straight into the River Weser where the vermin plunged after him and drowned.

The townspeople, however, now freed of the plague, regretted their promise and refused to pay the Piper who left Hameln in a bitter mood.

On the 26th of June in that year he returned, this time dressed as a huntsman, with a grim visage, a wondrous red hat. While the townsfolk were assembled in the church, he again sounded his pipe in the streets

But it was not rats and mice who came out this time, but the children! A great many boys and girls older than four came running and were led through the Ostertor gate into the very heart of a hill where they all disappeared. Only two children returned because they could not keep up: one was blind and could not show where the others had gone, the other dumb and not able to tell the secret. A last little boy had come back to fetch his coat and so escaped the calamity. Some tell that the children were led into a great cavern and reappeared in Transylvania. A total of 130 children were lost.

one more in the old town

by chancay

all these houses out of the 16th and 17th century are especially famous for their distinctive gables and overhanging windows. In the whole region around the Weser here in the norht of Germany you find houses like these, but in Hameln are much more "concentrated".

Daytrip Weserbergland

by MichaelFalk1969

The whole area of the Weserbergland is worthwhile exploring, and if you have a car, it is extremely easy as the interesting destinations are concentrated in a relatively compact area. My personal highlights are the Old Town ensembles of Hameln, Rinteln and Lemgo, the Bückeburg Castle and Porta Westfalica (Kaiser-Wilhelm monument and viewing point).
