In Genthof and Kortewinkel you’ll discover two authentic medieval wooden facades. It’s a small miracle that these fragile constructions have withstood the ravages of time for so long. The upper storeys each project a little further forward. This avoided water damage and made more space. Regulations to prevent fire had existed since the 13th century, but it was only in the 17th century that wooden houses were officially forbidden. Hundreds of examples disappeared forever, but fortunately these two have survived.
