Jugendstilfass

Jugendstilfassade

The four-storey “Jugendstil” town house – a fine example of an Art Nouveau facade – at the beginning of Sporgasse dates from the 16th century. Until the 18th century it was owned by chandlers. Later it was the business of Heinrich Kielhauser, who in 1900 commissioned the unique, floral Art Nouveau facade designed by Joseph Bullmann and August Ortwein.

Spanning three storeys the facade is covered by decorative stucco: pillars, pedestals, ribbons, vines, vases, floral ornaments and – prominently – two plaques by Georg Winkler with the portrait relief of a young women.
