Pied Piper International
On the traces of a German legend
Who does not know the legend of the Pied Piper of Hamelin? For most, it is such a natural part of childhood that you cannot remember exactly when you first heard or read it. This does not only apply to Germany. The legend is told all over the world.
Most people are not even aware that this in its essence supposedly is a real event that happened in the year 1284. Rather, they know the fairytale-like plot of the miraculous banishment of the rats, the betrayed piper and the kidnapped children.
For more than 200 years, this story has been inspiring generations of writers, artists and musicians to ever new interpretations. Depending on the epoch and cultural area, new perspectives and interpretations arise.
