Simplicissimus House Renchen

About the object

The important German storyteller Johann Jakob Christoffel von Grimmelshausen was mayor of Renchen from 1667 until his death. With the conversion of a historic farmhouse into a museum of literary history, an art collection assembled over decades has been made accessible to the public in memory of the man who gave his name to the town of Grimmelshausen.

Multifunctional extension with barrier-free access

The poet’s legacy was to be conveyed even better through a multifunctional extension. Bernd Sieferman, current “Schultheiss” of Renchen, wished that the enlarged house would now become “an even more important place for meeting and experiencing art, culture and literature”. In order to make the museum and the events in the Simplicissimushaus accessible to people with walking disabilities, access without barriers and obstacles was planned for the extension.

Convenient and safe access with automatic door from Baier

This was put into practice with an automatic door from Baier GmbH, which is based in the Ulm district of Renchen. Automatic doors offer convenient access to buildings with public traffic. The advantages are obvious. Balanced in function and design, they adapt to almost any existing building situation and grant access without direct door contact. Baier automatic doors are tested and certified and thus reliably fulfil all comfort and safety requirements.
