The marker is mounted to the left corner of the building, but is not visible here because it is obscured by a pole.
 Münsterplatz (Schwäbisch Gmünd) (Wikipedia, in German). "The building dates back to 1557, but the building was erected using Romanesque building materials. The half-timbering took place in 1938. Interior renovations were completed in 1949 and 1986. The ground floor was originally a two-nave hall. Since the 19th century, the house has always been divided into two parts."
