Description

A little further on you will see the Old Department Store, easily recognisable by the stepped gable with the large clock. In the Middle Ages and modern times, taxed intermediate trade took place here under a municipal merchant master. This was strictly supervised by the city. On the ground floor were the wool, saffron and fruit scales as well as calibration equipment, and on the upper floor the municipal dance hall. In 1838 and 1839, the building was converted into a concert and theatre house with a council cellar. In the process, neo-Romanesque changes were made to the Gothic character of the building. Another conversion took place in 1995, when the Old Department Store was transformed into the present cultural centre, opening in 1997.
