On November 2nd and 3rd, 1797, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe stayed overnight at the "at the Golden Edge" post inn on the marketplace. He himself wrote: On crossing the border of the state of Württemberg, one finds Gmünd, an imperial free city

on Rems River, with green meadows and surrounded by gardens. The city has two walls, but outside of the old city center it's crap. Very old built houses. Lodged at the post inn.
