Freudenberg is a small town near Siegen in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is famous for its historic core built wholly of half-timbered houses. There are many towns with half-timbered architecture in Germany, e.g. Celle, Limburg an der Lahn, Dillenburg, Wernigerode. What is unique about Freudenberg is that all these half-timbered houses look… more or less the same.
