A house that has miraculously avoided being torn down during the GDR times. Only 2,5 meters (around 8 feet) wide! It's a private home, so you can only see it from the outside, but it's well worth it.

This is a unique piece of architecture, just 6 feet 8 inches wide and 34 feet deep. You cannot tour it since it is a private residence. Check it out as you tour the sights, but do not make a special trip.

It is one of the smallest houses in the world. It's closed, unfortunately you can not come in there. But some photos with it will be unforgettable!

This is a very small and narrow house in the middle of more normal houses. You can't go inside but it's worth viewing from the outside.

Without a doubt the cutest house in Eisenach, but it's a house, not a museum. So I can't give it a five-star rating, even though it's really cute.
