  Guess which part was the house
by iandsmith

You only have to see this building to know it reeks of history. The Haus zum Guldenen Stern (Gold Star House) is easily identified and even has the year 1459 written in Gothic style on its oriel.
This was a dual purpose building, both a home and a printing house where, in 1473, for the first time ever in Erfurt, something was printed. That something was a letter of indulgence, the type of thing that Martin Luther railed against a couple of decades later.

Address: Allerhelligenstrasse 11

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
