The buildings of the Wine Market, Dinkelsbühl

There are five magnificent gabled buildings (dating from around 1600) in the Wine Market; the former Aldermen's Inn (Gustav-Adolf-Haus) with its dainty domed tower roof: it also served as the town's guest house where important persons such as Emperor Karl V (1546) and King Gustav Adolf of Sweden (1632) stayed; a patrician house with stepped gable (now Zur Glocke); the Deutsche Haus with one of the most beautiful late Renaissance facades and decorative statues - Bacchus, the god of wine and frivolity can be seen sitting over the openings for the hoists; barn with curved gable decorated with obelisks - this long building Schranne was a corn storehouse and one of the municipal trading places.
