Overshadowed by Sababurg's claim to Sleeping Beauty's castle and Bodenwerder's Baron von Münchhausen, Höxter's connection to a fairy tale is limited to a small Hansel and Gretel fountain in the middle of town. One of the bigger towns in the Weser valley, its appeal instead lies in its Rathaus, a perfect example of the Weser Renaissance style, and proximity to the impressive Reichsabtei Corvey, which lies a short drive away.
