Heidelberg - Renaissance house Zum Ritter in the Market Square

Zum Ritter house in the Heidelberg Market Square in Germany

Possibly the main architectural jewel of the historic city of Heidelberg in Germany.

I mean the Zum Ritter House, which you can see in the central marketplace of this city of great university tradition.

Also known as the Knight's House, was built in 1592 by a merchant, and it is one of the only houses in Heidelberg that have survived the devastating invasions and fires of the late 17th century.

The main reason for these survivors is that this bourgeois house It was built entirely in stone, compared to the usual wooden constructions of the time.

I assure you that when visit Heidelberg, you will not be indifferent to the vision of the spectacular facade of the Zum Ritter House, which now houses the hotel of the same name.

From Renaissance architectural style late, this facade will certainly remind you of some of the facades that survive in the Heidelberg Castle, with its characteristic reddish color and ornate decoration, which includes numerous figures and decorative elements.
