A beautiful piece of old Hamburg is preserved in these typical residential homes which date from the 17th century. The oldest of the Krameramtsstuben (A and M/N) can be traced back to 1615/1620 and the whole ensemble was enlarged in 1676. A narrow alley leads between these half-timbered houses. Among the details worth noting is the way the chimneys are screwed onto the roof, and a sign on the house in the shape of scales. House C is an original widows house in the 17th century-style. Find a tearoom and a nice second-hand bookshop in the alley.
This place looks better in pictures. I enjoyed the coffee/tea shop across the way better than the actual site. It's very small so if you happen to be there with a tour group (like we were) you'll find it very claustrophobic. It wasn't really worth the trip for only 1 house with 3 rooms to see. It's not a loss if you don't make it there.
