Door with its own address: Kleine Pfaffengasse 25, Speyer Germany

The door of this house is located in the historic center of Speyer, which has so many buildings with landmark status that it has declared entire streets to be a "landmark zone".

The door has it's own address Kleine Pfaffengasse 25 although it is physically located in the Judengasse. The door opens directly onto the street as you can tell by drainage and cobblestones in the foreground as well as in the next photo.

Door is on the right side, in the middle of the photo, just before the yellow house

The house is located at a cultural crossroads between Catholism, Judism and Protestantism. Nearby is the bishof's residence and the Catholic Diocese, one of the oldest in Germany, dating back to the 4th century. The Judengasse (Jewish alley) leads to the ruins and museum of the former Jewish Quarter also dating back to the 4th century. One block away is the Lutheran Protestant Church Council.

I love the door and the streets. I wish there were more towns with cobblestone here in the states. It is an uncommon sight :(

Thanks Russell! I captured a really cool door in Chicago and then thought, I think everyone's had enough Chicago for awhile. I'm glad you commented, it confirmed I made the right choice and I'm glad you liked it!

This cobblestone street looks a bit like the 'Schnoor' in Bremen. (My birthtown smile)

Ah du bist ein Nordlicht! I visited Bremen once as a student, 1984 or so...it'd be interesting to visit again, if it weren't so far away from Baden-Württemburg...
