"Handschuhsheimer Hof" Ladenburg Things to Do Tip by Kathrin_E
Ladenburg Things to Do: 29 reviews and 86 photos
The impressive part stone, part half-timbered building belonged to the noble family of Handschuhsheim (Handschuhsheim is now a suburb of Heidelberg). Such a name (Handschuh = glove) requires a 'speaking' family crest which shows, of course, the glove.
The house dates from the late 15th century and was enlarged and redecorated in renaissance style a century later. The year 1561 is written above the portal.
Ground floor and first floor received a design with diamond-shaped stones which were popular in those times and often used on palaces and other reresentative buildings. However, these here are not real but a painted imitation.
Address: Rheingaustraße 32
