I know most of you have heard of the Pied Piper legend. The legend originated in the town of Hameln when several children went missing in June of 1284. The center of this town survived the Second World War and still to this day is a perfect reflection of the Weser Renaissance period.
Above you see a picture of Hannah befriending a statue and to its right is a picture of the St. Nicolai Market Church.
This is the Hochzeitshaus (Wedding House). It is right in the center of the town. Do you see the window in the middle with wood covering it? About three times a day that opens and little figures Pied Piper figures come out, spin around, and reenact the story of the Pied Piper. Hameln also has an open air stage that puts on performances of the Pied Piper story every Sunday during the warm weather months.
