Station: [13] Steffen of Duisburg

Is everything really exactly straight? Master bricklayer Steffen von Duisburg carefully examines his assistants’ work using a pendulum level. The wall has to be flawless. Neither Rutger von der Horst nor master builder Arnt Johannsen, formerly a bricklayer himself, will stand for botches. He therefore checks his colleagues’ work especially thoroughly. Nonetheless, he has full faith in Steffen von Duisburg, who has also been working on the castle since day one. In the meantime, two of his sons have joined the ranks of the craftsmen as bricklayers. Such is the tradition: a son will learn his father’s craft.”
