Krummel´s House

back to overview

Of all the many historic buildings in Wernigerode, Krummel’s House stands out from the crowd. Its unique façade ornamentation sets it apart from all other buildings. It is completely covered with exquisite woodcarvings, from the doorstep right up to the eaves.The house was built in the year 1674 by the corn trader Heinrich Krummel.

The windows here were fitted with wooden grilles for better ventilation...
