The town of Hameln is on the River Wesser in the beautiful Lower Saxony area of Germany and having a rental car will give you the freedom and opportunity to really explore this area. The town is, of course, famous as the home of the Pied Piper! If you are visiting with children they will love exploring historic Hameln and searching for the visible reminders of the Pied Piper, which can be found in street names, fountains, stained glass windows, clocks and bells. This Renaissance style town is compact and easy to explore on foot, with a stop for coffee in one of the town's many squares. Use your rental car to explore the Saxony region, famous for both its Meissen wine and porcelain. Drive along the Wesser Renaissance Road where you will also find many castles to visit. The Wesser Mountain Region is a haven for walkers and bikers, whilst water sport activities can be found on the River Wesser. If you want something more relaxing, however, you can enjoy a riverboat trip.
