This is an old building located right next to Hangman's Bridge. It is not opened to public but is great for a photo stop.

In interesting heritage building in Nuremburg is that of Wienstadel located on the northern bank of the Pegnitz at Maxplatz. This is one of the city's most famous architectural buildings.

What you see here is the largest half-timbered house in Germany, originally constructed between 1446-48. At that time, this location was outside the city walls. It was used then a hospice and place to feed lepers in the Middle Ages. In later became an imperial city wine storage location, giving the building its present name - Weinstadel (Wine Storage).

Heavily damaged during WWII bombing raids, it was reconstructed in the 1950s providing the version of Weinstadel that you can see today. Good views can be found from Maxbrücke as well as the small street that runs just to the west of this important heritage building.

A beautiful old bridge in the middle of old town. A great place for photos. Take the time to walk across the bridge.

This is hardly a highlight of Nürnberg, but it is a very nice walk if you have the time. Bring a camera. The name derives from the distant past when this was a vine growing area of town. Since then Nürnberg has become better known for its beer.

This building which is not open to the public sits next to Henkel Haus and the Hangman's Bridge. It is an impressive structure but it is not open to the public.

We stayed near the Weinstadel, and were captivated by the beautiful buildings, reflected in the water. Position yourself on the Max Bridge for wonderful photos. All in a fairly quiet setting. The covered footbridge is nearby, another nice spot for photos. Nürnberg is a beautiful city.

What most tourists miss when they see the Weinstadl is that this is the Studentwohnheim - student housing for those students at the Nuernberg campus of Friedrich-Alexander University.

Great spot.

Well repaired from the bomb damage, it still holds a charm of it's own. The water ways are lovely and the use of picturesque little bridges help.

I enjoyed returning to Nuremberg and once again walking through this part of town. The buildings ate beautiful and their relation ship with the waterways is fascinating and intriguing, having been so well restored after massive wartime bombing of the city.
