The Ancienne Douane, with the Cathedral, the Rohan Palace and Petite France, is one of Strasbourg's most visited sights. It is also an essential witness of the commercial prosperity of the Cité Alsacienne. The original building was erected in 1358, on the site called "Salzhof" (Court of salt), a parchment of 1143 recalls that there was stored the products of the salt mines of Lorraine, which were then shipped beyond the Vosges.
In 1401, the ground floor of the building was bought by a butcher named "Spanbett", who operated an inn.
In 1497, a fire broke out in the Zum Spanbett Inn.
In 1507, this inn was rebuilt with the funds of the "Work Notre-Dame".
On August 11, 1944, during the Second World War, the building was almost completely destroyed by aerial bombardment. It was to this sad fate that he was abandoned for nearly 18 years.
On May 4, 1962, the city of Strasbourg decided to revive it while respecting the parts classified "Historical Monuments", and the building will find the silhouette of its roof with steep slope, with its innumerable skylights and gothic gables.
