Krameramtswohnungen (Shopkeepers' Houses)

Krameramtswohnungen (Shopkeepers' Houses) Review

The shopkeepers' guild built this tightly packed group of courtyard houses between 1620 and 1626 for members' widows. The houses became homes for the elderly after 1866. The half-timber, two-story dwellings, with unusual twisted chimneys and decorative brick facades, were restored in the 1970s. A visit inside gives you a sense of what life was like in these 17th-century dwellings.
