Romantic background for a perfect picture from Museumsbrücke (Museum Bridge) which is very nice too. This special building next to River Pegnitz together with some trees and various geese wandering around, create the atmosphere for good shootings!

Like many have mentioned there is not much to do. I just like the fact that this building is built across the river, which you don't see very often. Other than that it nice to pass by and relax on the bridge and watch the ducks swim by.

Not much to say but it is an old building with great architecture that makes for a nice picture as you are crossing the bridge. Something you will see while on a walking tour of Nuremberg or just wandering over the bridge.

Built betwen 1332 and 1330. Building is over the river Pegnitz. It was one of the largest hospitals in the middle ages. The structure along teh souther arm of river and northern wall of the former Hospice church survive. Tody, the Hospital of the Holy Spirit is a municipal senior citizens' home and it housed an excellent restaurant in 1963.
