05 Backes

The “Bäckeschen”, an old half-timbered house, is still referred to by villagers as “Backes”. It was originally the bakehouse (or bakery) of the Haghof estate, the name of which reflects its proximity to the castle.

The Backes is the best-known halftimbered house in Dreiborn. The former Haghof was historically significant and was located close to the church of that time. The Haghof was first mentioned in a mediaeval document, together with a tower, the village linden tree and an independent wine tavern at the Gassenhövel, in the area of springs near the castle.
