"Germany for the Jewish Traveler"


The town’s Gasthaus Salmen (Inn) is emblematic of the highs and lows of the German-Jewish experience. The inn was begun by Jewish owners in 1806 and in 1875 became a synagogue. It was destroyed on Kristallnacht. Restoration of the building under municipal auspices began in 1997, and in 2002 it was unveiled by the President of Germany as a Cultural Landmark of National Significance.
