"Hameln - Home of the Pied Piper" Top 5 Page for this destination Hameln by Gerrem

Hameln Travel Guide: 105 reviews and 223 photos

The famous town of the Pied Piper legend is situated about 50 km south west (and about 40 km west of my hometown Elze) of Hanover, the state capital of Lower Saxony in the North of the Federal Republic of Germany. As well as the German name "Hameln" the town is also known as "Hamelin" and "Hamlin" to the English speaking world.

Hameln, situated on the river Weser in the centre of the Weserbergland (Weser Hill Country), is economically important and a tourist attraction. This hilly region extends on both sides of the river Weser from its source (where the rivers Fulda and Werra meet) from the town of Hannoversch Münden down to the region of Minden.

The Pied Piper's town has about 60,000 inhabitants, about 1/3 of whom live in the 13 associated boroughs
