Have you ever gone to a place wondering what, and where, everything is? OK, maybe not so much today since we live in a world with Google Maps and GPS. Before the advent of all this technology, suppose you had come to the town of Lambsheim — then what?
Would you have known that on the Bahnhofstraße is a restaurant and hotel from the 1880s that’s known for its stucco work?
Would you know that along the Hauptstraße (check out #2 to #7 especially) you’ll find a Baroque House, a 19th century Parsonage, a Protestant Church, and the St. Stephen Church that was built in 1785 in both a Baroque and Classicism style?

Further along Hauptstraße is full of Baroque courtyards and houses, many from the 18th century.
Aren’t you glad I’m here to tell you this? There isn’t an “App” for that (yet). ;-)
You can go back a little further in time on the Hinterstraße, where you’ll find some 16th and 17th century houses. And even more found on the Marktstraße. At Mühltorstraße 33, you’ll find a beautiful villa to look at. Too bad it isn’t for sale — I’d love to have one of these babies.
I wouldn’t mind having the Meckenheimersches Schloss, either. This castle originally dates to around the year 1400; and while a school on the upper floors — its vast cellar is rented out for events.
The town of Lambsheim beat me to the punch to buy the former Jagdschloss, or Hunting Lodge, as it now acts as the town’s Rathaus (Town Hall). Doesn’t matter what it’s used for, it’s still a splendid example of Baroque architecture.
The best piece of architecture in Lambsheim has to be the remnants of the 14th century fortification and its Neutorturm (right, that’s a tower). Even if you don’t agree, it’s still a magnificent piece of work from the Middle Ages.
How about we discuss it over a glass of wine at one of Lambheim’s three wineries? A nice discussion with friends over a vino — thank Heaven there ain’t no “App” for that!
