    Stadtrundgang Krems

    font + font -

    The winding staircase leads us, as easy to see, up to the next church, the Piaristenkirche.

    And right at the beginning, to the right, a favorite place for centuries, painters angle the socalled Sängerhof from the 15th century with the high chimney of the medieval smoke kitchen. We approach unmistakably the oldest preserved parts of the city. The name of the Sängerhof comes from, the home of the choir master of the parish church, who lived here for a considerable long time. Some stories are told about him, like Walther von der Vogelweide should have stayed here for a night. Make sure you take a look into the courtyard. In the inside there are other houses which former belonged to the parish Krems cooperation. The final building at the end of the court, has a considerable big hall in the ground floor, formerly served as press house and was also supplied from the east side. The houses on the right side of the courtyard are the backs of the almshouses overlooking from the Pfarrplatz.
