More about Hamelin

The story of the Pied Piper is one of the most famous in the English-speaking world, and is believed to have happened in 1284. It was chronicled a century later. During the time of the documented story - and indeed, for much of its history - Hamelin was a very small market town, enclosed in its strong, defensive city walls. It only really began to grow any further in the early 19th century, when Napoleon ordered the demolition of the fortress that formed part of the town boundaries.

As a result, Hamelin has retained a small-town feel, along with a beautifully preserved centre. Here there are numerous half-timbered houses with richly decorated gables, set out on a network of attractive narrow cobbled streets. It is - just as it was described in the 14th century - a 'very handsome town on the River Weser', complete with many ornate wooden carvings and even several remnants of its medieval wall and fortress.
