The Gerlachschmiede was a beautiful house on a lovely street. Great spot for photos. I wasn’t sure about the history, but it was very pretty and easy to visit from the old town.

In a wonderful town full of beautiful historic buildings this one truly stands out. The best way to view this unique building is from up on the city walls which can be relatively quiet.

This is such a cool landmark to see and take photos of. If you want a photo with nobody in it I would suggest you rise early in the morning and beat the tourists crowd. When we were last there, it was under renovation, but...More

Unique, charming, and a mandatory photo op. For another perspective, go up into the adjacent medieval wall and check it out from above.

While spending a few hours on the wall today we suddenly came across this beautifull looking place and thought that is smart. Sitting on the intersection like that and it’s colourful Tudor style exterior makes it hard to miss and hard not to admire, well...More
