This beautifully crafted building is another of the photo treasures of the city, like the Plonlein and the Rathaus. The forge house is a rebuilt building. It is seen easily as you walk the wall around the Roder gate and Tower.

In a city of beautiful buildings, this is quite eye catching while walking the wall. Not exactly city centre like Das Plonlien, but a nice find along the way

This Gerlachschmiede or Old Forge is a pretty building. You can pass it on the street or see it from the walls. I took plenty of photos of it. It is near the Rodertor. Definitely, get a photo.

I walked past Markusturm (highly recommended) to get here, and though it was OK to look at, but then I walked along the town wall (must see attraction) and the view of the house was even better.
