The house Columbushof (Columbus Court) is built in the second half of the 19th century on Columbusplatz (Columbus Square). At this square begins the Columbusgasse (Columbus Street, with a mosaik), named 1 December 1864. The Columbusplatz dates probably from the same year, although there is no official decision for this name.
