Wilhelmstraße 23

This large farm building was probably the 17th century ancestral home of the Blankenhorn family in Müllheim.

In the middle of the 19th century the front of the building was redeveloped to present a uniform facade in the late classic urban style.

Typical features include a segmental (i.e. does not form a semi-circle) arched gate, balconies above the doors with ornate metalwork bars, an attic level punctuated by ventillation hatches, and immediately below the roof-line the repetetive stone artwork of a tiered dentil cornice. The inner yard is accessed via an elaborately designed baroque entrance and covered arcade.

The building faces onto Markgräfler Platz, venue for Müllheim's many outdoor events. Across the square towards St Martin's Church is the Tourist Information office.

Next stop: in the opposite corner of the square is the Old Town Hall.

Alamanicus is wandering his old Alemanni haunts, revisiting the places where once he used to drink, carouse, and beat up the odd Roman legionnaire or two. Things have moved on since his day, and the old Alemanni country now lies across south west Germany, French Alsace, and northern Switzerland. Cut through by the mighty Rhine, it is an area of great beauty, and a lot has happened there since Alamanicus last walked this land.
