In and around Hamelin, the countryside is steeped in Legends. The Piper has been facinating anyone who hears the story for over 700 years. Baron Muenchhausen's tall tales from the nearby town of Bodenwerder have inspired for centuries.
Meet the most well-known legend live, the Pied Piper. Hear his dulcet tones that have charmed more than just rats and children. Be led off on a tour of the Old Town. Your travels continue by ship first to Bodenwerder, then as far as the moon in the reminiscences and fantasies of the "Lying Baron" that are documented in the Muenchhausen Museum.
Another highlight is the tour of the Hameln Museum with focus on all the facets of the Pied Piper. See the mechanical Piper Theatre room upon your visit. Dinner is a Hamelin speciality: Rat-Tail Flambé and the Rat-Killer chaser.
From Mid-May to Mid-September, you may catch the Pied Piper in the act, at the Open-Air Play on Sundays.
