A unique series of historic hotel buildings - a picture book of art history

Here a unique series of historic hotel buildings follow one another; a small art history about the railings of the balconies could be written, too. Still today many houses show by their names that they were hotels once, like the “Russiche Hof” (house no. 23), in which not only Russian guests stayed but also the King of Denmark, or the “Englische Hof” (no. 46) with its classical front in which royals stayed, too. The “Schützenhof” was among the first-class hotels once. The rococo front of the house “Herzog von Leuchtenberg” (no. 40) was especially splendid. Three fountains from the year 1839 remind that the maids had to carry the drinking and cleaning water to the hotels before the invention of water pipes.
