There must be a counterpart to the devil's oriel in town, don't you think? And true - there is one! It is located in the northwestern part of the old town, quite far from the devil ...

The house was built 1624/25 using older existing structures. Worth to see is the Renaissance portal but mostly the oriel, decorated with art works of stone: the dragon heads and portrait masks on the sides, the angel figure in the middle.

There is a shop selling typical wooden Christmas and Easter items in the house nowadays. It's not exactly my favourite shop (a sweatshop) but you can at least have a look.

Directions: corner Barbiergasse/Dohnaische Strasse
