Germany: Knochenhaueramtshaus in Hildesheim

Today I got a postcard from Germany.

It shows the Knochenhaueramtshaus in Hildesheim. The Knochenhaueramtshaus is a masterpiece of the Gothic style and is said to be the most beautiful half-timbered house in the World. It was built in 1529 as meeting place of the butchers' guild. During World War II it was destroyed, but was rebuilt between 1987 and 1989. Today it houses the Municipal Museum of Hildesheim.
