the year 1192. The Ritterhaus has been owned by the Ritterhaus Society (“Ritterhausgesellschaft”) since 1936, the year of its foundation. The Society
managed to prevent this remarkable medieval monument from falling into disrepair and created a Museum relating the history of the Ritterhaus and the various orders of knights. Since 1959 the Ritterhaus has been designated a National Historic Monument. Today it is a wellknown meeting place and has attracted nationwide interest.
