We absolutely loved our recent visit to Hameln Old Town. It was a beautiful meander through some amazing buildings with the highlight being watching the clock complete with rats and children following, not to be missed. Wish we had been able to stop for longer.

In the central part of the old town, no cars are allowed so it's a very nice walking area. Amazing houses and buildings and outdoor cafeterias and bars.

We'd read so many reviews on the internet about how much people enjoyed their time in Hameln and they weren't kidding. It's was by far the best and most beautiful city on our travels on the 'Fairy Tale Road'. Beautiful buildings, clean streets (and "rats")...More

Hameln is a very beautiful town, cobblend Stone paths, and old buildings, the oldest one I remember seeing is from 1500. Hameln is famous for the fable 'The Pied Piper of Hameln'. This place is worth a visit.
