The Brusttuch (meaning Tucker which is a sort of neckchief which covers the area round the neck and chest in period gowns usually for daywear) is so called because merchants and traders would sell these garments from stalls infront of this house on marketdays due to the proximity of the house to the market square.

It was built in 1526 and is now a Treff Hotel, part of the Ramada Group. I have not stayed here so haven't listed it in Hotels but in Things to do as it is a beautiful building.

When it was built a woodcarve was employed to carve figures into the timber in the upper section of the building. Apparently one carving shows a Buttermaid scratching her bare bum!
