The House of Mayor Richtsen

The house was built in 1777 by the rich lace merchant and mayor Carsten Richtsen.

Large 2-storey baroque building with large bay windows and a beautiful sandstone portal with Rococo ornaments and doors. Probably the city's most beautiful house.

The house is not only geographically located in the border country, but is also architecturally a hybrid composed of several different styles and influences. As a testimony to the cultural and architectural development of Southern Denmark, it is not only of regional but also of national importance and as such indispensable to the Danish cultural heritage.
