Red Route - Weinmarkt


The town’s traders were organised into 11 guilds. The numerous guild-houses which flank the Weinmarkt emphasize the importance of these artisans and traders to Memmingen. The retailers, weavers, butchers and carpenters were all represented here.


Here the guild with the most members in Memmingen erected one of the town’s most beautiful half-timbered buildings. Woven goods from Memmingen, due to their high-quality, were successfully exported for many centuries.


The Kramer were those merchants who were restricted to selling their wares within the town-walls. 42 professions were represented in the retailers’ guild.
