Erected from the 13th until the 15th century, 1993 until 2003 faithfully restored, the houses are an authentic mirror of Medieval living culture and way of life

The so-called "priest houses" - recorded for the first time in the documents in 1521 - a closed architectural unit with four two-storey houses and for the late medieval construction typical steeply pitched roofs.They are proven to be among the oldest existing residential building ensembles in Germany.
