The Historic Rows of Barns in Weißenstadt are unique in urban planning.
The barns were relocated to the outskirts of town in order to prevent future fires from breaking out. The barns are still a defining feature of Weißenstadt.
The ridge line and eaves spanning across several barns make the otherwise rather plain buildings appear much more massive and impressive. Dark slate roofs, some dry masonry wall and archways with decorative granite frames are memorable features of the outer parts of the historic center of town.
The majority of barns is listed nowadays. In order to preserve the historic barns, potential new ways of utilizing them are being considered.
