The Krameramtsstuben in Hamburg are located at the Krayenkamp in the Neustadt below the "Michels". Formerly used as apartments for widows from the Krameramt, the half-timbered houses built between 1620 and 1700 today form the last closed courtyard development of the 17th century in Hamburg.Today used by small shops, galleries, restaurants and a preserved as a museum apartment, the ensemble of the two front buildings, with the built along a narrow corridor houses of the courtyard, best illustrates the appearance of the until the 20th century large parts of the hamburger Old and new town formative Gängeviertel.One of the three-storey old apartments is preserved in its original state as a museum Kramer widow's apartment, a branch of the Museum of Hamburg History (Hamburg Museum). It has been furnished with a complete furniture from around 1850/60, partly from the apartments themselves or other grocery households, and can be visited.It illustrates the housing conditions in the widow's apartments and at the same time, since these apartments were not inhabited by poor sections of the population, the rarely shown housing conditions of the middle class in a large city in the middle of the 19th century.A beam balance and an Elle from the period around 1800, the most important measuring instruments of the Kramer and as a guild sign also on a blackboard on the houses to see, are also there to see.Source and further information:

Not far from the Michel is the historic alley of the Krameramtsstuben, a unique example of the 17th century Hamburg residential building. Breathtakingly narrow is the closed courtyard with a total of ten half-timbered houses, where today smart shops, a gallery and a time-honored restaurant have found their home. At that time there lived Kramerwitwen - only one apartment is preserved and still gives insight into the living conditions of that time.
