The construction of the military bakery lasted from 1849 to 1852. The building is symmetrically constructed with a clear span. Against the central element with two floors were in east and west two rooms positioned. Each element had a gable roof which got simple decorative elements. On the long side large basket arch windows were installed with keystone in stone, creating a depth effect, the head ends were provided with round windows at approximately 3 meters.
