Storybook Facades


About as close as you can get to a storybook gingerbread house in Munich is the famous Reffini House, just south of Marienplatz off of Sendlinger Strasse.  It’s actually made up from a collection of three individual units, which are lavishly decorated with fresco images from the turn of the century.  The house is named after Johann Baptista Ruffini, a major salt merchant from Bavaria.  The house was originally built in 1905, but has origins to buildings constructed in the 1800s.
