Corn Market Square

back to overview




There is a lot going on here, especially when the people of Füssen are doing their shopping. In earlier times it was no different. The house on the right of the entrance to the street opposite with the large gothic gable belonged to the master baker Martin Welz, before it was transferred into the possession of the Augsburg prince-bishop. Who then set up the town's administration in this house. On behalf of his ecclesiastical master the bailiff was responsible for the local government's secular administration and jurisdiction. The defence of the town and its subjects against incursions from outside were also part of his duties, which the Füssen bailiffs discharged until church property was secularised in 1803. Then the town became part of Bavaria and the administrative building was converted into the District Court. But the beautiful carved doors in the arched gothic entrance still recall this time.
