This sculpture/tower is a nice decoration on street. Visit if you pass by, do not go there just for this.

This is currently boarded up for restoration, so unable to see it, though I have seen it before and turned the ring! It will probably look great when they have finished the restoration.

I was disappointed not to see this Medieval fountain on this visit however although not much is visible at present due to conservation work I know this 14th century fountain warrants an 'Excellent' rating. The fountain is found as you enter the market square. Fortunately I can post a photo that I took in 2011.Forty brilliantly coloured figures on the... More

The fountain is located in the square in front of the church, where the outdoor market is, for me being there at Easter, it... More

The fountain was blocked off by walls for maintenance or something. I could only see the top half probably but what I could see was pretty awesome. It's hard to believe it's been there from the 14th century. The fountain is located next to the market and St. Sebaldus Church, it's worth a look I just wish I could have... More

This fountain shaped like a Gothic spire is truly remarkable. It is said to bring good luck if you spin the brass ring. Just go there and see yourself. It is very central, just a easy 5 - 10 minutes walk from the main train station (I don't know how fast you walk).

Lovely fountain- the craftsmanship here is stunning! Great spot to take a few pics- and while you are at it- there are 2 rings built into the metalwork, if you spin them, luck will come your way- or so we were told. The more obvious is the fold ring but there is a brass one on the opposite side as... More

This monument is a landmark of the city and a masterpiece of Gothic art. Full of colours and sculptures with great details. It is a nice place to take some pictures and admire it, especially if you love medieval art and symbolism (even the truth is that it is a copy after the original). Our hosts from Nuremberg told us...

We saw this as part of a stroll through such a beautiful city. Its not worth a specific visit as its only a landmark and not that big compared to the 3 major churches in the city but do put it on your list if your in the city

Is there and you are in downtown, so go and see it. Not amazing or ugly, or big. Basically a landmark and a traditional view in postcards.
