He parades through the streets of Hameln in a colourful outfit, playing a happy tune. His story is full  of mystery and does not end in happiness. Hameln’s Pied Piper is fascinating to everybody, whether young or old.

Embedded in the gentle hills of the Weser Mountains region lies Hameln (population 60,000), on both sides of the river Weser. The historic city centre with beautiful sandstone and half-timbered buildings from the 16th to 18th century, the Pied Piper openair performance and the musical “RATS”, the glass-works in the historic Pulverturm, a boat trip on the Weser – you can experience all this in Hameln. A further special on the programme is the range of offers entitled “Mystery, Magic and Temptation”. No matter if you’re a first-timer or a regular visitor – let yourself be tempted by the mysterious, legendary city of the Pied

Piper.
