The county hospital is the second largest employer. Town council and county council follow in terms of number of employees.

The economic structure of Hameln is also characterised by its geographical location within the attractive landscape of the Weserbergland and especially the world-famous legend of the Pied Piper: tourism plays a large role in Hameln´s economy.
