The Brewers’ Building (1535-1554) used to supply the surrounding breweries with drinking water by means of an ingenious distribution mechanism, which has remained largely intact.
The plant consists of a horse mill which set a machine in motion that ladled up water and emptied it into containers on the upper floor.
From there it was distributed to the breweries by means of pipes.

The wonderful council chamber belonging to the Brewers’ Guild is also open to the public.
