Hamelin on the German Fairytale Route


In the towns along the German Fairytale Route, the Grimm brothers collected the fairytales, sagas and legends published in the famous collection “Grimm’s Fairytales”. The German Fairy Tale Road begins in Hanau, the birthplace of the brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. And the German Fairy Tale Route runs from the River Main (in Hanau) to the sea in Bremen, where the Bremen Town Musicians conclude the fairy tale round.

The Grimm brothers collected more than 200 children’s and household fairy tales and also published almost 600 German sagas. Most of the fairy tales really are familiar to every child, such as Rapunzel (who was locked up in the tower of Trendelburg Castle), of course the Pied Piper from Hamelin or the stories of Baron von Münchhausen from Bodenwerder.

Famous towns along the German Fairy Tale Route are Alsfeld, Marburg, Bad Wildungen, Baunatal and Kassel, Rotenburg an der Fulda, Hannoversch-Münden, Göttingen, Bodenwerder, Hameln, Nienburg, Verden, Bremen and Buxtehude.

In these and other places, fairy tales are brought to life. And there are wonderful events throughout the year (such as the Pied Piper open-air play in Hamelin), which are summarised on the website of the German Fairytale Route:

Exploring the Fairytale Land by bike

A long-distance cycle route also connects the most beautiful places on the German Fairytale Route. It begins in Hanau and ends in Buxtehude and leads through charming landscapes such as the Spessart, Habichtswald, Weserbergland and, of course, Hameln.
