Weimar certainly is not especially famous for half-timbered houses. However, a powerful half-timbered house, built in the 16th century, stands out. Like all old half-timbered houses it has a long history.
In 1838, after the Weimarer town hall had burned down, the city bought the old house. For centuries its charm was almost inconspicuous because plaster covered the beautiful facade. After the German Reunification Köstritzer Schwarzbierhaus, today a tavern, was meticulously and lovingly restored.
