When you enter Hameln you will see signs on which the times that the puppets come out, appear. In our case it was at 13.00. First you hear the chimes of the bells and then the story of the Pied Piper is represented. An absolute...More

The exterior of this characteristic building of Hameln is beautiful and a fantastic motif of photographs, but unfortunately the interior was completely spoilt by an unsuccessful project so that it cannot be visited any longer.
