Einbeck is an old Hanseatic city with half-timbered houses. Hanseatic means belonging to the trade union of free German cities. It helped in trade, as Einbeck has one of the oldest (founded in 1378) active breweries in the world, which produces the Einbecker beer.

The old city is standard, with many beautiful half-timbered houses starting from the 16th century. But the 16th-century City Hall is unusual, we saw the similar one only in Wernigerode.

The most beautiful place is the Market Square, with flower market on Saturdays.

There are also two ancient houses in the Market Square: bakery (Brodhaus, 1552) and pharmacy (Ratsapotheke, 1590), they stand to the right of the church.

And this is clearly a new house, but the design is unusual for Germany.

There's another unusual house behind the St. Jacob's Church, which stands on the Market Square.

Like other houses in the downtown, it has old tiles.

The tourist information office is also located in an interesting place. The Eickesches Haus was built in 1612 and named after the owner Eicke. Its facade is decorated with numerous wooden carvings.

There are also rather large areas of the defensive walls, including the towers. Because of this fact the city resembles Quedlinburg, but there is one unusual thing that we haven't seen elsewhere. As the city has grown far beyond the walls, the newer buildings were harmoniously joined with the walls and towers.
