German-English translation:

The Von Sonnenberg House

The former familial seat of the Sonnenberg family. From 1670-1673 Heinrich von Sonnenberg, a leading French diplomat, built this house on the site of two older houses.

The interior features rich decor from the construction period: a paneled room with coffered ceilings, a stucco-covered gallery and ballroom, with multi-colored marble slab floors.

The exterior was remodeled in 1842, and in 1895 enriched with decorative stucco.

In 1839 the house became the property of the municipality.

A listed monument since 1964.
