The three kings Inn, French Heritage monument to Ribeauville

Building located at the corner of the Grand'Rue and the street of the Abbot-Louis-Kremp, masonry ground floor and upstairs in timber, corbelling on lateral and gable, with a diagonal floor beam angle. Sablière curved Carter. Joints for rabbet and dovetail. Doors and Windows updated. Roof to a great everything. On the corner, taught from the hostel: plate steel rounded painted representing the Magi (very restored). Originally the building was perhaps not an Inn
* It is cited from 1729 to 1789 as a place of meeting of the Fiddlers. Certainly, the building dates back to the 15th century, due to the presence of a pan of datable archaic wood this time, part of the gable on the lateral. The right side of the gable has been taken in the 18th century. The ground floor openings have repercées to the 18th or 19th century. Modern skylights.
