The Carree an der Frauenkirche in October 2007

Seen from the Neumarkt: left: entrance Salzgasse, right: Rampische Straße. Facades: the house to the left, the former "Swan Hotel", and the house to the right are model buildings. Also the house in the middle, "The Bell", has been reconstructed after historical model. Drawing: VVK.

The biggest house, An der Frauenkirche 13, is called "The Swan". It was erected between 1740 and 1746. Thirty years earlier George Haases had created the house Rampische Strasse 1. The lopsided bay is especially conspicius. The building in between, An der Frauenkirche 14, looks narrow and small. It is called "The Bell" and dates from 1708/09.

All four facades of the houses at the beginning of the Rampische Strasse are reconstructed.

Seen from the Salzgasse (no. 7; no. 8 and An der Frauenkirche 13). Two narrow buildings are simple modern interpreted with traditional plaster facades, tiled roofs and high sitting windows with transposed plastered window recesses.

Rampische Straße 3, 5 and 7 before the destruction in 1945.
