Travel, encounter and experience German heritage alongside the Danube

The house belonged to the German family of Traiber, whose ancestors had been given titles of nobility for their military services. In the second half of the 19th century, a strong linguistic assimilation of the German speaking bourgeoisie could be observed in the whole of the country; this is also reflected on this building, since the family put their Hungarian name on the attic façade in 1870: Vasváry. The front is ornamented with a relief of pyrogranite, which was produced in the local pottery Zsolnay, thus forms a link to the Traiber-Vasváry family’s profession: they were iron and steel traders.
