- Baumeisterhaus: Baumeisterhaus ›
Sixteenth century German domestic architecture with first floor shops and stepped (corbie) gables.
The house known as the Baumeisterhaus, which was built by Weidmann in 1596 for a town councillor, is the most important Renaissance building in Rothenburg, notable for the particularly rich figurative decoration on its façade. The facade is decorated with two rows (on two floors) of seven herms. One set represents the Seven Vices or Sins and the other set the Seven Virtues.
