Hoxter

Höxter is not actually in Lower Saxony, but just over the border in North Rhine-Westphalia. The town's appeal lies in its Rathaus, a perfect example of the Weser Renaissance style, and its proximity to the impressive Reichsabtei Corvey, an abbey that's a short drive away. There's not much Grimm here; 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.
