History of the House

This house is the old municipal baths of Riquewihr. 

The ages have transformed this house but you will find parts of period steeped in history.


This house (6 rue de la Première Armée) is steeped in history, it received municipal baths from 1442 to 1721. The well is still visible today, it served to feed baths with water.


According to the cadastral map of 1833, the courtyard facade has been advanced to the north, overhanging the well and encroaching on the west elevation (courtyard) of House 1 Lateral street.


The door dated 1618 certainly was in the old facade, the date corresponds to remaniments or a reconstruction of the house. The present house dates from 1618 but the basics are older.
