The old town of Hannoversch Münden lies at the point where the Werra and Fulda flow into the Weser. The status of the former rich trading town can still be seen today in the high fortified towers and the remains of the town wall. The image of the old town is characterised by the historic half-timbered houses, the magnificent Renaissance town hall and the Guelph Castle, the former residence of the Duke of Calenberg-Göttingen. The town’s most famous son was Dr Eisenbart, who was appointed wound surgeon by the King of Prussia, but on the other hand was also infamous as a charlatan. The puppet show at the town hall as well as plays regularly commemorate the historical figure.
