  • 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!
  • The three-story building, including two timbered dates back to 400, and over the centuries it has been transformed into wine storage, hence the name. Nice wooden covered bridge that connects it to the rest of the city, too bad I found it closed (but I get the impression that it is nearly always).

  • There is still a small exhibition about the criminal history of Nuremberg in the executioner's practice 19th. In particular, the story is told by executioner Franz Schmidt on display boards. The exhibition is very interesting.

  • Bar/House and the complete subject Max bridge is one of the most photographed motifs in Nuremberg - right.
