The atmosphere of this ancient eatery and the rat decor will keep the kids amused as you sip your second or third Stein of excellent Paulaner brew. Excellent food and heaping servings...and outdoor seating when it's not raining. Worth the extra pfennigs.

This is probably the most touristy restaurant in Hameln. The restaurant is supposedly the Pied Piper's house from the 13th century (I think). Anyway, they specialize in German fare for obvious reasons. It seemed quite authentic. The room decor was more traditional as well. Overall...More
