Did you notice this beautiful Renaissance house standing on the cathedral's square, residence of a rich merchant?

An inscription above the front door indicates that the ground floor dates back to 1467, put up for the draper Hans Joerger. Storeys were raised from 1589 for the cheese merchant Martin Braun.

Look at the façade's details! We can recognize Zodiac signs, but also Virtues (faith, hope, charity represented by a griffin, a pelican and an eagle). Here, you have dozen of little musicians with a drum, a harp or a fiddle...
