Hameln - Altstadt

• Hameln ist eine Stadt an der Weser in Niedersachsen.
Die Stadt ist wegen der Sage über den Rattenfänger von Hameln berühmt. Die mittelalterliche Geschichte erzählt von einer Tragödie, die der Stadt im dreizehnten Jahrhundert widerfuhr: Hameln verlor alle Kinder der Stadt. Die von den Gebrüdern Grimm geschriebene Version machte es weltweit populär. Obwohl Hameln einen feinen mittelalterlichen Stadtkern mit einigen bemerkenswerten Gebäuden besitzt, wird die hauptsächliche touristische Anziehungskraft durch die Sage des Rattenfängers gebildet. An den Sommersonntagen wird das Märchen von Schauspielern im Stadtzentrum aufgeführt.

• Hamelin is a town on the river Weser in Lower Saxony, Germany.
The town is famous for the folk tale of the Pied Piper of Hamelin, a medieval story that tells of the rat-catcher and of the tragedy that befell the town in the thirteenth century: Hamelin lost all children of the town. The version written by the Brothers Grimm made it popular throughout the world. Although Hamelin has a fine medieval town with some remarkable buildings, the main tourist attraction is the tale of the Pied Piper. In summer Sundays, the tale is performed by actors in the town centre.

    Unfortunately, I don't know, how this method of building is called. In the Central Asia thus houses build now, sometimes fill with not burned brick from clay with straw.
    Your old houses are very picturesque! They from a stone?

      The construction method is called timber framing (German: Fachwerk [Фахверк]).
      The skeleton of the house exists of timber (that are the visible dark beams). The space was filled earlier with loam and later with bricks (these are the bright surfaces)
      This construction method was used in Western Europe since the antiquity till the 19-th century.
