Hamelin Panorama

Hamelin City Breaks

Visit the fairytale city of Hamelin in Germany and discover the world of the legendary Pied Piper. Enjoy a relaxing boat tour along the River Weser and take the time to visit the nearby city of Hildesheim, Germany's capital of Romanesque architecture. It is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Romanesque-Gothic Church of St Michael. Hildesheim is a city best explored on foot, taking in the town's Rose Trail.

Also in the area is Castle Hämelschenburg, a beautiful three-winged building surrounded by a moat.

Want to dance to a different tune than that of the Pied Piper? Take a look at our Cologne city breaks or hotels in Karlsruhe for a different view of Germany.
