  • Located directly above the Pegnitz River, it is the former residence of the executioner of Nuremberg. Inside you can visit through the halls, the view of the history of the crimes of the Bavarian city, and the city's most famous executioner: Franz Schmidt. Fascinating To VISIT!!!

  • This House has a small museum, don't visit it. Outside, reminiscent of the houses of the middle ages with the half-timbering and the beautiful colours that have given.

  • Once in the old days was in town executioner, then he had a House. That, or this already does not matter! Tourists show House and Bridge executioner in an ensemble, they love it! And the executioner looks at it from the heavens and smiles-but not my house and so much more ...

  • Great photos form this point in the city.
  • Amazingly the river was frozen!
  • Beautiful little house from the outside. I didn't go in because it was closed, but I hear it isn't worth going in. The island which this house is on is lovely. Do walk around, it's great for photos.
  • The place is beautiful from the outside and the bridge has a nice atmosphere but do not bother going inside! I paid 2€ to see the inside which was renovated without regard for it's legacy. It displays a few posters about the executions and that's it. You cannot go up the tower (or at least I couldn't at the time of my visit). If you want to see what it was like during the dark ages and how the process of accusation, torture and execution was carried then visit the Medieval Dungeons at the Town Hall!
  • Only the outside part is interesting.Not too much to see inside,only a few written information.
