  Crédit Mutuel, Rue des Hallebardes
by JLBG
 
 

Half-timbered houses are not standing only for tourists. Some have very standard uses. This one is a bank, the Crédit Mutuel. The address is rue des Hallebardes (halberd street). The amazing thing in Strasbourg is that many streets have kept a very old name such as Rue du Bain aux Plantes, Rue des Hallebardes, rue du Fossé des Tanneurs, rue du Vieux Marché aux poissons (not rue du Marché aux Vieux poissons!), rue de la Monnaie, rue des Dentelles, etc.
