Worms Off The Beaten Path: 7 reviews and 24 photos
It cannot get more off path than this, but if you have time and are mobile when at Worms, you should go and see this most cutest tiny house yourself ! Ibersheim, a “suburb” of Worms (not actually suburb, but incorporated into Worms greater town), is only 12 km to the north at the banks of river Rhein. Just go to Rheindürkheim and then turn right, direction Ibersheim.
I am grateful again to Fritz Reuter, for having placed a photo of this in the booklet about Worms. As soon as I saw this photo, I knew I MUST go and find it. What a lovely and funny surprise, as it is part of a tiny little old house, which is a sight for itself !
Oh, the name :-) It only means something for German speaking people, and if I translate it into English, VT software would transform something into *** anyhow. Now how to explain this name ? Ducate sh***er maybe, but the little wooden carved sculpture speaks for itself, lol.
Well, this tiny guy (he is tiny in reality, if the sun wouldn’t have shine on his blank butt, I might not even have noticed him) is at the edge of a tiny house called Ammersheisje. Meaning house of the… erm, no none is actually sure if “Ammer” means poor (arm in German) or midwife (Hebamme in German), but this does not matter, does it ? Well, the house has been lovely renovated by the locals and not only has the little sh***er carved on but also lovely other carvings and paintings. One day, I’ll surely write about this lovely village and the house, as – ah thanks – Ibersheim is on VT database.
You can find it when turning at the sign Gemeindehaus, and just follow the road until you won’t get any further (= until you come to the dam which separates village from Rhein river).
