“Crazy sculptures”

House of the Seven Deadly Sins
Reviewed 28 June 2018 via mobile

Inside is a bakery. It seems like this place is a must do in Limburg. Otherwise it was a pretty plain building.

One of the oddities of the town of Limburg. Shows the artists concept of the 7 deadly sins of mankind. On a narrow alley in the center of town. Worth a couple of pictures

I agree with the other reviews, don't make the trip to Limburg just to see this building, but it is worth seeking out if you are already there. We found it very interesting and had fun trying to figure out which statue was for each sin.

I was expecting some sort of great feature or building, however it is so insignificant we wlaked by it 3 times. Its just 7 faces of sin carved into some wood of the roof beams of an old building. Dont go out of the way for this one.

In Limburg, there are better half-timbered houses
Limburg is one of the major half-timbered cities in Germany. However, the half-timbered "House of the seven deadly sins," I, unlike many others, do not like. Simply, it’s location is very good - on the fork of the roads leading to the city center with its squares Kornmarkt, Fischmarkt and Bishofsplatts, to the Old Bridge with the statue of St. John of Nepomuk, to the beautiful cathedral, to the oldest half-timbered house in almost the whole of Germany - in Roemerstrasse, 8. Yes, in addition to all of this one of the first owners of the house had lucky idea to put on a beam above the first floor 7 masks, to which then popular rumor attributed the biblical prototypes.
And so, by itself, the house represents nothing special. In Limburg, there are better half-timbered houses.
