The Spieker at Atteln is a renovated Tudor style building from the 'Weser- Renaissance', it was built in 1588 and is one of the most well known listed buildings in the 'Paderborner Land'. For cultural historians, its architecture alone make this 400 years old secular building a very interesting site. Rosettes filled with a rich fan design on the breastplate decorate this treasure. The so-called Spieker served probably as the village mayor's house or the council chambers. The senior mayor or councillor was provided with 45 square metres of living accommodation and 45 square metres of storage room. This is in honour of something very special, even if its history is still shrouded in mystery.
