The Jenisch house, built between the years 1831 and 1834, is a typical representative of late classicist architecture. Due to its almost square floor plan and its only graphically differentiated walls, the building appears sublimely plain. On the first floor, a balcony is supported by four Doric sandstone pillars. The filigree of the gold-plated cast iron balustrade decorates windows and balcony. After repairing the destructions of war, the house was re-opened in 1955 as museum of home decor. As the original furniture was not preserved, a compromise was created: The spacious representative rooms on the ground floor are decorated in Classical and Biedermeier-style, partly with artefacts from Jenisch's possession. The 14 rooms on the two other levels display furniture from the late Renaissance to Art Nouveau.
