Hamelin, Germany a town on the river Weser in Lower Saxony, Germany and is best known for the tale of the Pied Piper of Hamelin.
As the story goes, in 1294, a rat catcher was called to the town but was subsequently cheated of his fee.
In revenge, he lured the children from the town by playing beguiling melodies on his flute - and they were never seen again.

The town is a beautifully restored historical town with magnificent timber-framed and sandstone buildings,
many of which date back to the Renaissance period. Tiny, winding alleyways are dotted with cafés and inns,
cozy beer gardens and pretty little shops.
