 Leinwandhaus (Linen Hall) & Stadtwaage (Weigh-House)
The building stood at the southern edge of the Weckmarkt and contained the Historic Museum and archives.   During the Middle Ages, the house was used for the sale of linens and hemp.  It was built in 1399, probably by the designer of the Cathedral Tower, Madern Gaertner.  It was destroyed during the second World War, but rebuilt  in 1982-83.
