I had a great dinner at the restaurant with my colleagues. The place is very nostalgic and cute. We ordered different meals and everybody satisfied with his meal. Waitresses are helpful and not all of them perfect in english:)As a result, if you visit hameln, you should have a dinner in rattenfangerhaus.

The building was very historic. It was well preserved too. You can feel the famous story inside. There are nice old pictures of Hameln on the walls. Also there are small souvenirs about Rattenfanger and Hameln. When we come to food I should admit that everything we ate (we were 6) was very delicious. Also suggest the wheat beers.

Very tasty traditional food. The calf schnitzel was very tender. Generous servings. Some of the plates are good for two.

This is probably the most touristy restaurant in Hameln. The restaurant is supposedly the Pied Piper's house from the 13th century (I think). Anyway, they specialize in German fare for obvious reasons. It seemed quite authentic. The room decor was more traditional as well. Overall it was a good dining experience while in Hameln.

Stopped by here after a day of walking around the old town. My wife was drawn in by the promise of roast duck and red cabbage, I mostly just wanted some schnitzel and a beer. Wish granted, my wife said her duck was some of the best she's had, and the jagerschnitzel was good too. Beer was of course great.... More

Having visited this town on numerous occasions and just walked past, a "collective family " ,actually my sister, decision was made to try here rather than just allow both my brother and law and me to enjoy the Christmas market food and drink, and we were all not disappointed. Fantastic food, drink and service. I have noticed complaints regarding the... More

Business dinner in a charming town with interesting history. Rattenfangerhaus provide a historical atmosphere with candle lighting, post & beam accents to highlight one of the many charming dinning rooms. Great food, perfectly seasoned, exactly as ordered. A must see and eat location in Hamelin.
