(x) Town and Fortress -Walkers Guide 4 Garvergården, Skippergade 26

4 Gavergården, Skippergade 26

This large, half-timbered house was presumably built in the 18th century. It  contained many activities, among them tanneries -hence the name ("garveri" is Danish for "tannery"). Market town used to have many small, half-timbered houses, but most of those now preserved are large like Garvergården. The building is today a listed private residence.
