Cloth hall

Local name: Lakenhal

The historic cloth hall was built in the first half of the 15th century, while only 7 of the planned 11 bays were built. The remaining ones were added as planned only in 1903. The upper floors from the beginning of the 17th century were occupied by the fencers' guild, currently transformed into an official sports club.
