In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the town of Rinteln underwent an economic boom, and the period saw the founding of the Ernestina University. Most of the half timbered buildings standing today date from this period. Rinteln's prosperity was severely affected by its involvement in the in the Thirty Years War, and by the plague which...more
The night watchman patrolled through the city and watched out of fires. Today you can still see the night watchman as statue at the market square. But there's also a night watchwoman! She's still alive and you can see her once a month. More info: http://www.rinteln.de/EEObject?ID=2958506&Token=8EE985E098B0F7D42A5823D548AC8547&Version=L1&ContextID=4more
Next to one of the towers of the fortifications you find the district of "Hinter der Mauer" Once the poorest part of Rinteln it is now the nicest in my eyes. Please compare the size of the house with the size of the car! Unbelievable, there are still living people in the house!more

Two main things we got there which we even did not need to ask for: The certain sauce to asparagus came separated in an extra bowl. Great thing! Salad came with oil and vinegar not with that heavy tasting mayonaise dressing, Great thing! We had different sorts of fish, salad, and asparagus which really tasted wonderful despite that it was pretty...more
Restaurant Kassel is a very nice, a very lovely, traditional, and typical German place which provids with an hotel as well. It's located on Rinteln's pedestrian zone. Though the restaurant is less lightful it is yet very cosy, and quiet. Very friendly waiters/waitresses, great food. Their rost beef tastes so fantastic that one may call it an event....more
There visitors can find the typical Italian ice cafe, typically located on a town's pedestrian zone. And if it's a good Italian ice cafe, like this one is, visitors will enjoy the typical, Italian creamy made ice cream. Just that. Nice atmosphere, a bit loudy, and very friendly staff.more
This Reformhaus Rinteln is another clean, neat, well structered and organic items providing, health shop. Salesladies are very friendly and helpful. I do recommend this health shop as much as Bad Pyrmont's health shop at pedestrian zone: Reformhaus Kreisel-Siebe, Brunnenstrasse 3, Bad Pyrmont, 31812, ph 01149-5281-46 00 since Bad Pyrmont is pretty close to Rinteln (about 20-30mns).
The organic market in Germany is by far the biggest in Europe, with sales more than five billion euros (6.5 billion dollars) in 2008, according to German Federation for Organic Food. The next biggest market, Britain, is worth two billion euros. And eggs are the most popular of bio products, citing a survey showing that 63 percent of organic shoppers put eggs in their baskets, just ahead of fruits and potatoes.

As the journal of Lippische Landeszeitung wrote, Rinteln can be happy to have the Dunkelpeter Popcorn company moved into their town. Not only due to the sweet, sugar scent one can smell there on windy days but also Germans don't need to munch imported popcorn. I do consider their very tasty, crispy popcorn, with caramel added, the best.Dunkelpeter...more

The origin of the strange name of Rinteln's district Todenmann (dead man) is not known. Assumptions are, the name might be related to the shut down of the former local coal mine many years back. Rinteln's suburbs with the village of Todenmann (among others) is the latest founded village (16th century) which earlier, was not more than a cluster of...more
