The Kammerzell house

  • The Kammerzell house

    Although this house bears the name of the grocer Kammerzell, its owner in the 19th century, it actually owes its current appearance to Martin Braun, a cheese merchant who acquired it in 1571. He kept only the stone ground floor, dating from 1467, and rebuilt the house with three corbelled out storeys and three floors in the loft in 1589.
    The rich decoration on the façade, both secular and sacred, was inspired by the Bible, Greek and Roman Antiquity and the Middle Ages.
    Restoration work carried out in 1892 made the whole building darker, but this decoration still testifies to the cultural influences of a 14th century Strasbourg burgher.
    Inside the building, you can admire remarkable frescoes painted by Leo Schnug in about 1905.

The Christmas Market

The City of Strasbourg wishes to hold its Christmas Market, a tradition of the Alsatian capital, dating back several centuries. This is why the city is actively working on adapting the event to the health context, so that everyone can enjoy this magical time despite all of the constraints.

Depending on changes in local health conditions and contingent on approval from the Prefecture of the Bas-Rhin and the regional public health authorities, the Christmas market should begin on 28 November.
