Büsingen Junkerhaus

The Junkerhaus is one of Büsingen's tourist attractions and was the residence for the local bailiffs. From 1535 till 1854 Büsingen belonged to Austria and was ruled by the Im Thurn family. On 10 April 1693 Büsingen bailiff and Nobleman Eberhard Im Thurn who resided in this building took a decision which eventually stopped the incorporation of Büsingen into the Swiss federation and which led to the present enclave and exclave situation.
