Berlin Travel Tip:
German Timber-Frame Road
German Timber-Frame Road
The German Timber-Frame Road (German: Deutsche Fachwerkstraße) is a German tourist route leading from the river Elbe in the north to Lake Constance in the south. Along the road you can find nearly 100 cities and towns with remarkable timber-framed houses. It is divided into seven sections, leading through the following states of Germany: Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Hesse, Thuringia, Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. The total length is nearly 3,000 km (1,864 mi).
In 1975 the 'ARGE Historische Fachwerkstädte e.V.' (Association of Historic Timber-Framed Towns) was founded. Its aim is to preserve the cultural heritage of a huge variety of different styles of half-timbering in Germany. To share this knowledge with other interested people the 'German Timber-Frame Road' (sometimes referred to as the "German Timber-Frame Route") was founded in 1990. In the meantime 98 timber-framed towns have joined up under the slogan "Timber-framed houses unite".
