The pied piper town of Hameln is world famous and always worth a visit. It is located in the beautiful Weser-Leine-Bergland and has been inhabited since the Stone Age. Its lovingly restored half-timbered and sandstone buildings of the Weser Renaissance still form a city center that is worth living in.

The representative center of the old town are the Osterstraße and the horse market.
Particularly noteworthy are:
- The canons' house from 1558.
- The Leist House, now a museum (lots of information about the Pied Piper legend, but also the history and development of Hamelin from prehistoric times to the present day / admission 5.00 EUR / adult).
- The Pied Piper House.
- The Dempter House - The wedding house (today they got married like on an assembly line.) On the gable the pied piper chimes (Question: Are the sounds coming from the can in the meantime? I didn't see that a single clapper would have moved.) - Two wall towers (Haspelmathturm and Powder Tower) with a reconstructed section of the city wall
- Münsterkirche St. Bonifatius (Protestant), three-aisled Gothic hall church with octagonal crossing tower and Romanesque crypt. - Market Church St. Nicolai (Protestant), built before 1200, destroyed in 1945, rebuilt 1957–1959.
