Description

Relief showing a 'Heiner' leaning out of his window opposite the Stadtkirche, which is reflected in his window. There are some interesting details: I his hand on the inside of the closed window, the reflection of his back in the open window, the man at the top of the bell tower baring his behind, the lady in the window of the church tower displaying her 'assets'. By tradition, a "Heiner" is somebody who was born in Darmstadt and has always lived there.
