Schild KiTa Burgkirche

The present street “An der Burgkirche” between the market place and Burgkirche was formerly known as Kirchgasse (Church Alley). There a remarkable collection of mainly baroque buildings has been almost completely preserved. Typical examples are the butcher’s house (No. 1) and the protestant parish house (No 7). Especially imposing is house No. 10, which derives from 1740, in which a kindergarten has been located since 1952. It has a high mansard roof, stone window cladding and so-called ear-frames, an artistically wrought...

An open stair leds to an admirably rounded portal guarded by pillars above which a coat of arms with the inscription “Hessisches Amtsgericht” is preserved.
