Barrel 2:

Now you are in the middle of Market Square. Directly in front of you the Till Eulenspiegel fountain. Probably you know this jester: Till Eulenspiegel liked to play heavy jokes on his fellow humans. Stories about his life and (mis-)doings are told since the early 16th century. He was also up to his mischief in our town. Do you know the trick he played on a master brewer? A little hint: The tale has to do with the German saying “It’s enough to drive the dog in the pan mad”.
Looking to the right, you will see the magnificent Brodhaus (Markt 13). It is one of the oldest inns in Lower Saxony and even today you can still enjoy freshly tapped draught Einbecker beer at this place. The Brodhaus was first mentioned in a document in 1333, and it is the only preserved guildhall of Einbeck. It offered shelter to journeyman bakers and was used by the bakers’ guild as a location for celebrations, assemblies and as an inn. Today, the only witness of this time is the historic bakers’ guild sign outside the building. It is told that an Augustinian monk gave the property as a present to the bakers’ guild, because the monks were not allowed to hold any worldly possessions in the Middle Ages. In exchange, the guild delivered hosts for the Holy Communion to all churches within a distance of 2 miles – free of charge, of course!
If you walk along the street Münsterstraße, you will get to the next barrel. Simply follow the beer barrel markings on the ground.
