Centrally on Memmingen’s market square rises the city’s medieval administrative building – the well-known Steuerhaus. The building was built in the 15th century and housed the Privy Council and the city’s financial administration. Until 1805, several offices were located here. Even today, the Social Welfare Office is located here, whereas on the first floor there is a café and a store. The portico with round arches and the ocher-colored paint are striking features of the Memminger Steuerhaus. On the facade there is also a city view from the 19th century. The entrance to the building is in the four-story Münzturm, which was converted into a staircase in 1863.
