The ancestral home of the industrialist family Siemens in the Schreiberstrasse, built in 1693, is one of the largest and best preserved patrician mansions in Goslar. It is an impressive example of the typical multifunctional character of a house of the time: it was not only a residence but also the family’s place of business.
A loaded wagon could drive into the entry hall and pass into the courtyard beyond, while numerous upper storey floors and two wings at the back provided abundant storage. The beer brewing room is a monument of Goslar’s commercial history: in the 17th century more than 380 properties had the right to brew beer.
