Gasthof Zum Lamm (Volkach)
The Gasthof Zum Lamm was first mentioned in 1770. At that time, the owner Caspar Model handed over the property to Friedrich Ott. In the same year the business came to Bernhard Fröhlig. The frequent changes of ownership continued in the period that followed, with the widow of a certain Michael Hartmann for the inn as early as 1785. She bequeathed the house to Matthias Bertold. Only with the Böll family at the beginning of the 19th century began a phase in which the building remained in the same hands for several decades.
In 1803 the inn consisted of a house, the actual inn, then called Zum Weißen Lamm, a barn and a courtyard. The Böll family stayed in the Lamm family as the host family until 1823. Georg Ziegler sat in the property in 1839. He or one of his unknown predecessors had set up a bowling alley there . There was also a horse stable and a wooden hall. Ziegler handed the inn to Christoph Ulsamer in 1843.
For the year 1897 Otto Leist has been proven as the owner. After Michael Holzer was mentioned as the owner in 1905, a slaughterhouse was added to the inn. The bowling alley no longer existed. In 1930 Maria Holzer, perhaps Michael Holzer's widow, was the owner of the lamb. She wrote two diaries about the events that took place in the so-called lamb hall, such as carnival events and balls by veterans of the First World War .
On November 6, 1930, the first National Socialist meeting in Volkach took place in the premises . Unlike in other places, there were no conflicts. The National Socialists often met at the Zum Lamm inn later. After the Second World War , the inn was leased. Heribert Haug was the owner in 1951 and Edelbert and Berta Haug in 1984. Today, the house is empty and the Bavarian State Conservation Office as a monument out.
The inn is a two-storey, gable-free half - hipped roof house with slightly cantilevered upper and attic storeys. Both storeys probably have plastered half-timbering. The window frames are partially drilled. The core of the building dates back to the 18th century, but changes were made again and again. An extension building and the so-called Lammsaal with beer garden were later built on Bahnhofstrasse .
A special feature of the plastic Tavern arm on the side of the upper market. On a console which is fastened with leaf and Volutenornamenten on the wall, is the symbolic animal of the inn, a striding lamb. The boom comes from the first half of the 19th century and can be assigned to the Biedermeier period . Similar objects can only be found in Middle Franconia , in Lower Franconia they are a rarity. The boom was removed in 2019 as part of renovation work.
