“Interesting place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2010

Its a multi story house of the german equivalent to shakespere. Each floor allows an interesting peak into life in the past. The massive clock on the 2nd floor to me was the highlight of the house. It tell the time, date, month, lunar and solar years, Zodiac and all that without electricity - simply amalzing - request a volunteer on site to explain you this piece that is simply amazing and hard to express in words - must visit
