Description Additional Information Reviews (0)
The center of the pedestrian zone is the well of the Knöpfleswäscherin before the Elmar-Doch-Haus. "Knöpfleswäscher", so the Heidenheimer are often called joking. The name stands for resourceful people who have "nothing misappropriated". Why this is so, tells an anecdote.
In the good old days, a local citizen wanted to bring her husband a basket full of knöpfle (a local specialty, similar to steamed noodles) to work. On the way she stumbled and the Knöpfle fell into the dust. The woman picked them up, washed them in the city stream and her husband consumed them with great appetite.
