Schmallenberg – East and West street, Schützenplatz, all the houses and the parish church Saint Alexander in the center – on a detailed drawing, Peter Walach presents the historic city center as part of the 775th anniversary of the city of Schmallenberg. In addition, the architecture office Peter Walach team has created a new image with the city's monuments.

Wallach had the idea 25 years ago. Schmallenberg then celebrated the 750th anniversary of the city. "I have updated the cityscape drawn from 1994 on the occasion of the 750th anniversary celebration," reports the graduate engineer. He had tried to take into account all the changes of recent years. At the historic market on the 7th and 8th of September in Schmallenberg, the factory can be bought on a stand located in Weststraße at a price of € 7.75. "Urban landscapes are updated, numbered and signed, and on request they are also framed," says Walach. The edition is limited and is 500 pieces.

For the anniversary, the architect also realized another idea: a picture drawn with the monuments of the central city with the street names and house number (edition also 500 pieces). This drawing is also available on the historical market. In addition, the Walach architectural office team again showed each monument individually. The drawings will also be presented on the historical market stand and can be purchased on site. The historic market of 7 and 8 September completes the festivities marking the 775th anniversary of the city of Schmallenberg this year.
