Photo Diary: Old Hameln, Germany

Hello, Hameln! Lukas drove us a couple hours out of Hamburg to the small town of Hameln which is right on Germany’s Fairy-tale route. It has been a town since the 12th century and is most known for the famous medieval tale The Pied Piper of Hameln. L and I were staying in a nearby castle, Schlosshotel Münchhausen, and we spent a couple days exploring Hameln’s tiny old town. We love day trips to these small, middle-of-nowhere towns – they’re little gems buried in this beautiful country and definitely worth a visit!

My coat is from Holiday Beacon Hill by Julie Brown NYC. Navy booties are from Cole Haan. I found myself matching with many of the doors here in Hameln! #ihavethisthingwithdoors all the way.

We really came this far out of Hamburg to stay at the castle in nearby Aerzen but Hameln was a really delightful experience and the architecture that stands (and how long it stands for!) is really breathtaking. It’s like walking and living in a real life fairytale! The fairy-tale route and this little fairy-tale town definitely lived up to its name!
