The story of a unique Building
Even Patricia Schulz, author of the famous “1000 place to see before you die”, mentions Maison Kammerzell in her book as one of the most beautiful brasserie in the world.
Maison Kammerzell is a must-see situated on the Place de la Cathédral in Strasbourg, in the centre of what is called the Heart of Europe. Strasbourg is proud to present Maison Kammerzell as one of its most charming building, an authentic and traditional symbol of the city’s age-old values. The original architecture of the building, somewhat come straight out of a fairy tale, is a great example of the region’s traditional artistic past. Wooden sculptures, frescoes, spiral staircases and view angles are just some of the details that reveal the richness of the past of this monument.
The late Gothic foundations date back to 1427. Later on in 1467 and 1589, three upper floors of timber panelling were added, increasing the originality of Maison Kammerzell. The rich decoration on the façade, both secular and sacred, was inspired by the Renaissance humanistic ideal mixing Roman antiquity with the middle ages. The 75 bottle bottom stained glass windows give an extraordinary lighting to the rooms.
