Short walk from Limburg’s old bridge, you’ll find this unique half-timbered house… As an extra feature, on the side of the house are seven wood sculpted heads which stand for the seven deadly sins: pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed, sloth. At the first sight,...More

Look at this extraordinary house near the river Lahn, the old bridge and only some minutes uphill to the famous DOM. Admire the seven special sculptures, that show the seven sins.
