Hameln - the town of the pied piper

One of the most famous fairy tales the Piedpiper of Hameln has also a quite nice old town to offer. Albeit a couple of modern buildings it is still a convincing collection of lanes, timber-framed houses and typical Weser renaissence gabled houses.

Looks very beautifully preserved! I wondered if this town would ever be covered on here due to the famous story.

Thanks for the pictures, Johnor!

@Xemita
Most houses are from the 1700th century. Late Renaissance

@Svartmetall
The house you liked is called Dempterhaus and is from 1607/08 This style is called Weser-Renaissance and is mostly found in area around the river Weser. Hameln is called the capital of this style.
