Severinsches Haus

Short facts

  • Holzminden

The Severinsche Haus is a special half-timbered house in Holzminden.

Three-storey variant of the through hallway widespread in Holzminden with a third storey. Dated 1683. Richly decorated facade with projections on the individual floors. Several edifying inscriptions on the swelling blocks.
In the last few years, more half-timbered houses from the construction phase after the Thirty Years' War have been restored in Halbmondstrasse.

House no.5 could be dated to 1681 by examining the annual rings of the wood used. The house at Halbmondstrasse No. 1 was built in several sections: first the front half in 1668, which was lengthened to the rear in 1679, so that the house was almost twice its size. In 1785 the street facade was completely renewed. As in many houses in Holzminden, the original steep gable was hewn off.
