Eh'Haeusl means the house of marriage. It was built to break outdated marriage regulations in early century 18, requiring young couples in the city to prove their ownership of land if they want to get married. An entrepreneur used a narrow gap of 2,5 m between 2 towels, built more 2 walls in front and behind, shingling the roof to turn this place into a separate house. 

In 1728, Eh'Haeusl later was resold to a couple to prove their property. Until they get married, the owner once again resold to another one. Such a repeat, every few weeks, a couple moves here to live. In front of the door is an image iconical for the history of the house. Photo: Lukas Rode/Uniq Hotels
