A great small 'museum' to show how people used to live. We enjoyed touring this small house (small admission fee) and look at artifacts from a former life.

We stumbled upon this one whilst walking along the wall besides it. You have got to admire how they have managed to keep all these fascinating buildings in excellent decorative order.

This beautifully crafted building is another of the photo treasures of the city, like the Plonlein and the Rathaus. The forge house is a rebuilt building. It is seen easily as you walk the wall around the Roder gate and Tower.

In a city of beautiful buildings, this is quite eye catching while walking the wall. Not exactly city centre like Das Plonlien, but a nice find along the way

The Gerlachschmiede has the distinction of being a truly triangular building. We were there early one morning, so weren't able to go inside, but it is right up against the town wall near one the better-known gates.
