Weserbergland

Fairytale forest: the Reinhardswald

Fairytale forest: the Reinhardswald

The Weserbergland is a hilly, forested region in central Germany along the Weser River. A number of quaint towns with traditional half-timbered buildings are situated along the banks of the river. One of the most interesting of these is Hamelin, the town that the Pied Piper allegedly ridded of rats – and children – in 1284. The oldest structure in the region by far is the 8th century Abbey of Corvey, the west end of which still stands. The Fairy Tale Road (Märchenstraße) leads along the Weser from Höxter to Reinhardtswald, connecting many towns in the area associated with German fairy tales and legends.



Attractions Weserbergland

Hameln

The city of the Pied Piper of Hamelin

The city on the banks of the Weser is nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Weser Uplands. It lies on the German Fairy Tale Route and one of the darkest fairy tale characters was at home here: the Pied Piper, for whom a monument has been erected in the pedestrian area. However, guests do not come only because of the strange Piper, but also because of the magnificent old town. Along the River Weser walks and cycle rides can be enjoyed, as well as boat trips and recreational activities for water lovers.

Hildesheim

Early-Romanesque architecture on the edge of the Harz

The medieval Bishop city of Hildesheim is one of the most beautiful in Lower Saxony and a major site of early-Romanesque architecture in Germany. After being destroyed in the war and the ruination thereafter in the 1980's the marketplace was again restored to its former historical form. The Knochenhaueramtshaus (a half-timbered guild house) is seen as one of the finest timber buildings in the world and the city hall has a Renaissance oriel window once again. When crossing the pedestrian zone one arrives at the Holy Cross Church. However, the biggest tourist attraction in Hildesheim is the thousand-year old rose at the Hildesheim Cathedral. Even older is the St. Michael's Church, which, together with the cathedral, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Following the Rose Route is the best way to explore the old town. It is characterized by flowers which are painted on the pavement.
