Weisz'sches Freihaus Building

Special features
Weisz's free house
 
What is a free house: In the Middle Ages and in the early modern times, houses were called “free houses”, which were located within the walls of a town but did not legally belong to it.

Until the middle of the 16th century, Christoph Weiss, whose grandson, Joachim Christoph Weiss, was raised to a “Freiherr” (Freiherr = Landlord, sometimes referred to as "Baron", was part of the titled nobility in the Holy Roman Empire), acquired the object in 1589. That is why it was formerly called "Freiherr Weißes Freihaus". Today it is a passage with shops, restaurants and bars.
