Casa Luxemburg was built at the beginning of the 15th Century and seats on the first fortifications of Sibiu ("Villa Hermani"). Two older Saxon houses, one facing the Small Square and the other the Huet Square were combined to form a larger building. A third floor was added in early 1800s.
In the nineteenth century the building was bought by Johann Georg Schaser, an Evangelical priest and until 2004 the house was known as the Casa Rosie (Red House) or Casa Schaser. Between 1999 and 2003, the building was restored with funds offered by Romania's Ministry of Culture and the Bureau for National Monuments of the Great Duchy of Luxembourg.
Casa Luxemburg features an interesting mix of well-balanced Classical, Baroque and Rococo architecture. Original elements that have been restored include the Gothic wooden door, the impressive wooden staircase, and the second floor's wooden ceiling bearing the Taylors' Guild Seal (1597). Beautiful stucco floral motifs adorn Casa Luxemburg's colorful façade.
In 2007 the Romanian Postal Service issued a stamp sheet featuring Casa Luxemburg.
