“Handwerkerhaus”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

This was a beautiful example of the way homes in Germany were built. An excellent example. Charming, quaint and what I expected to see.

“History buffs, do not miss it!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

This was one of the most special things I discovered on my entire trip. Just happened upon it as I was walking around. What a treasure - a small private home that's been inhabited since the 1300 or 1400s! (I don't remember the exact date it was built.) Oh my gosh! I loved it, loved it, loved it. (Not everyone will appreciate this - no one else in my party visited after I told them about my discovery...)

“Really Interesting Too Bad More Don't Visit”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Off the tourist track but well worth the diversion. You get to see how a large family lived in a very small house. The old well and the cobbler's shop are highlights. Big museum upstairs as well.

“A glance back in history”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

This house is a must to visit if you are interesting in the lifestyle of the medieval residence. It is fascinating how the people lived those days.

“Time stands still here!”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

Amazing how this house is still as it was a few hundred years ago and the exhibits show how life was then. A rare glimpse of life then.
