Jakob Bower

slide show (2 images)

The Jakob Bower was built from rubblestone in 1250 and is one of the oldest secular buildings in Braunschweig. It was maintained as a ruin after the Second World War and in 2006 it was carefully restored with an extension which was added in a consciously modern design. This takes the place of the original front building and displays a façade made of rusting CORTEN weathering steel.
