Spohrplatz 7

Louis Spohr (1784–1859) lived in this historic villa with his parents through to 1786. He is considered as an influential composer between classic and romantic. The house, which was restored in 2003 in its original colours, is privately inhabited and not open to the public. Its half-timbered (“Fachwerk”) construction dates back to 1356, making it one of the oldest in Northern Germany.
