Diese Wohnhäuser sogn. Havelis, waren wohl vor langer Zeit sehr schön verziert. Von außen unscheinbar, innen (damals) sehr schöne Wohnhöfe.These houses sogn. Havelis, were probably very nicely decorated long ago. Unimpressive from the outside in (then) very nice residential courtyards.show original
