„Der Sparer mit Schweinʺ

Anno 2008

Spende der Sparkasse Bas Hersfeld - Rotenburg


Since the founding of the city the cityscape and the local community is dominated by rural presence. Farmers supplied the citizens with food, the butchers with cattle, the weaver with flax, and the tanner with skins. The North Hessian farmers were a hardworking, tough breed of people and very frugal as well.

Grimly or with mischievous pleasure the farmer stuffed his Kreuzer, Heller or even Taler (old German coinage) from the livestock trading or other transactions in his purse. Up until the 60s many farms were located in the middle of the city such as in today's Post Road the courts Blackert and Meyfahrt.
