Beust´sche Haus

Detailed description

Born into a family of civil servants serving in the court of the Count of Sayn-Hachenburg, this polyglot also worked as a painter and mathematician, in addition to her contributions to literature. She was a great admirer of Goethe and corresponded regularly with friends from his circle. While the front of the house has an early classical façade, its other walls still show the original timber framing. This structure probably dates back to the rebuilding effort that took place after the city‘s great fire. The vaulted cellar of the historic house still contains an old well.
