House from Rauschenberg II

House from Rauschenberg II

Built: 1685
Dismantled: 1978/79
Reassembled: 1986

At its old location, the two-storey, lower middle class House from Rauschenberg was squeezed in the midst of a row of buildings of a narrow street. The left part of the basement was reserved for stabling small livestock, and three simple steps led up to the house door. The top floor juts out strongly, a technique frequently used to create more space on the upper floors of timber-framed houses erected on small plots.

As with many other houses in the Market Square Ensemble, only parts of the original structure of the House from Rauschenberg could be salvaged. The eaves side facade hides a completely new construction that is now home to an herb and spices shop. Joined next door by a bakery, a Hessian souvenir and delicatessen shop and a market shop, these buildings recreate the authentic flair of a small-town market square.
