The corner of the town museum
The town of Hameln in Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) is a jewel of so-called “Weser Renaissance” architecture. The city’s streets are lined with fantastic half-timbered and stone houses, most dating from the late 1400s and early 1500s. Some photographs showing these treasures can be appreciated here.
We stopped for a night on July 31 on our way north to the ancestral towns of Marklohe and Martfeld (coming soon).
