Show sight on map

Leucojum vernum, commonly called the spring snowflake, St. Agnes' flower, and rarely snowbell among others, is a species of flowering plant in the family Amaryllidaceae. It is native to central and southern Europe from Belgium to Ukraine. It is considered naturalized in north-western Europe, including Great Britain and parts of Scandinavia, and in the US states of Georgia and Florida. This spring flowering bulbous herbaceous perennial is cultivated as an ornamental for a sunny position. The plant multiplies in favourable conditions to form clumps. Each plant bears a single white flower with greenish marks near the tip of the tepal, on a stem about 10–20 cm (3.9–7.9 in) tall, occasionally more.

Show sight on map

The Pied Piper's House or Rattenfängerhaus is a half-timbered building in Hamelin. It is named after an inscription on its side which purports to be an eyewitness account of the events of the Pied Piper of Hamelin story, describing the departure of the Hamelin children on 26 June 1284. An English translation given on a plaque reads:A.D. 1284 - on the 26th of June - the day of St. John and St. Paul - 130 children - born in Hamelin - were led out of the town by a piper wearing multicoloured clothes. After passing the Calvary near the Koppenberg they disappeared forever.

The Horst Wessel Monument was a memorial to Sturmabteilung-Sturmführer Horst Wessel, who was killed in Berlin in 1930. The remains of the former monument are located in the Süntel about 700 meters as the crow flies north of the Hamelin district of Welliehausen in Lower Saxony. It was planned from 1933 and built by 1938 in the vicinity of former quarries at about 370 m above sea level. The construction created a 12-kilometre visual connection to the Bückeberg to the south, where the Reich Harvest Thanksgiving Festival took place from 1933 to 1937.
