Germany- Stolberg

Germany- Stolberg
Around the year 1000 Stolberg (Stollen = mining gallery, Berg = hill) was established as a settlement for miners. Iron, copper, silver, tin and gold were extracted close by. As early as the High Middle Ages coins were minted in Stolberg, reaching its heyday during the 16th century. The Old Mint (PiP 1) is one of the most beautiful timber-framed houses in town. It was built in 1534 and has acted as a mint, mining fee office and district court; now housing the local Stolberger Museum Alte Münze.

The town hall (main picture) is dating back to the year of 1452. It offers a remarkable architecture, as it has no internal stairs; upper storeys only could be accessed by outdoor steps. Originally the building had 12 towers (months), 52 windows (weeks) and 365 glass windows (days). The sundial is from 1724, when the building became the town hall.

Stolberg is one of the most picturesque villages along the German Timber-Frame Road. It still has about 380 timber framed houses in its centre (PiP 2 and 3).
