    Pauluskirche

    by Hewer Written Jul 25, 2004

    The Pauluskirche was built in the 13th and 14th centuries. Whilst the city itself has moved in and out of the spotlight, the church itself has been the one consistent feature of the center.

    If you stay in Hamm for any length of time, you are bound to come across the Pauluskirche.

Hamm Nightlife

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Schutzenfest-Anywhere Westfalen
    Should you venture to Westfalen in late Spring -Early Summer ,you may be in for a treat.
    Schutzenfest is a celebration ,nominally involving Shooting a feather from a tower. Mainly its about a community coming together and celebrating itself ,through Music,Dance,
    Drink and Parades. Each small town (and sometimes neighborhoods within larger Cities) will set aside a weekend in Summer to gather under the big tent and PARTY. Its a jolly time, and the locals seem particularly friendly to foreigners (or at least to USA folk) during this time. Check it out if you're in town.
    Pic shows old town Rhynern-Westfalen...nice Schutzenfest town

    Daytrips by train to Munster,Hamm ,Soest are quite enjoyable.Some towns / locations though are only accessible by car . German roads can be a drivers delight .The back roads from the Externsteine thru Schwalenburg back to the Ruhrgebeit cities make one long for one of those old Porsches,but even in our rental Opel Astre they were fun.

    Westfalen is a varied part of Germany. From the bustling Ruhrgebeit , to the Teutoberger Wald there is much to Experience.If you're interested in a German city where you WON'T hear English spoken try Hamm. Its a major railcenter, so finding a Bundesbahn connection should be no problem . The Bahnhof is right in Centrum, so its an easy walk thru town This is a city that was heavily hit in the Second World War,but has recovered in fine fashion with tree lined Pedestrian Street,homey pubs,and people who are friendly to Americans. (There is a DuPont Plant nearby that once brought a few score American families to the area-Mine being one of them). If you're interested in seeing what the present day multi-cultural Germany is like without the touristic facade,this may be an interesting daytrip. Its no Rothenburg for sure,but it is the real Germany.

Hamm Favorites

  • Windsor Schools

    by Xefian Written Dec 20, 2004

    Favorite thing: From the late 40s to the early 80s Hamm was home to two British Forces Schools Windsor Boys and Girls Schools...1000s of Brits and a handful of Americans and Canadians got a pretty decent education here . Yhe local lore had it that WBS was a WW1 era air force training base...back in the old Bi-Plane/Blue Max days
    Now both campuses serve as holding areas for Refugees from the former Yugoslavia...there is limited access to WGS available ,but sadly WBS is locked up pretty tight as far as ex Windsors are concerned ....
