“First half 15th century”
Reviewed July 10, 2011

One of the most beautiful half-timbered houses in Bacharach. Of the original stone building, built first half 15th century, only the substructure was preserved, its half-timbered-floor in Rhenish Gothic style dates from the 16th century. The House was built in 1420 for Peter Ackermann, but its name is derived from Franz von Sickingen who, with his family members, lived here for a long time. Now owned by the family of John Lieberz. The House was built in standard style: the vertical bars consist of a single tribe, in this beamwork were horizontal gradient bars inserted. As this style did hot have much stability was the dais was invented (overhang part of a building), hereby Covenant one horizontal gradient bars with short vertical bars. Due to this difference it is easily noticeable which ones are the older homes.
