You can’t miss this large bronze on a lovely square below the Castle near Dürer’s house, apparently based on a sketch he made. Not the most attractive of memorials, but a good picture opportunity.

You can’t miss this statue if you’re wondering the streets of the old town, the big rabbit is a bit eerie, and it’s so overwhelming the small one I almost missed it.

Found below the Nuremberg Castle is an interesting, if not bizarre, sculpture. It is well worth spending some time viewing it from difference angles. It's free and it provides an interesting photo opportunity.

An interesting if not pleasant piece of sculpture which is almost impossible to miss if you wander around the old town, visit the Albrecht Durer House or the castle.

Finally something a bit weird made into art in a historic place. Life isnt always beautiful amd saintly, and this rabbit is a good macabre representation of this fact. It reminds me of the Rats of Nimh and the evil rabbit in Watership Down.

On a walking tour around this delightful city we came across this totally weird monument of a dead hare. Quite large and unattractive. Would not recommend looking for this unless you like this kind of thing ??

The hare is located just down the hill from the castle in a small square. It is certainly large and impressive but a little grotesque. Just across the road is the house where Albrecht Dürer lived which we didn't have time to visit during our...More
