Haus Melchior | Montabaur

Melchior House

For many years (from 1589) this building was an important inn. In the middle of the 18th century an internal family feud ended in a case of manslaughter. Thereupon – on the order of the prince – the building was split into two, as you can tell from the double gable and the dividing wall on the ground floor. The loft was probably used to store the town’s salt reserves. The Prince Bishops of Trier, under whose tutelage Montabaur stood, held a state monopoly on the salt trade.
