This sundial seen at a building in the city of Nuremberg (Nürnberg) made me smile. Can you see the face? 🙂 Not far away you can see a sundial at the Fembohaus and and a very different one at the Nassauer Haus.
Sundial at the Fembohaus which houses the city museum of Nuremberg. Inside one can see a lot of fascinating stuff, e.g. a big model showing Nuremberg before World War II.
Surprising detail seen at this house sign of an inn: The man with the crossbow is actually a beekeeper! I was told beekeepers were allowed to use this dangerous weapon in order to keep away bears.
Fun presents found at my hotel room. A box of Lebkuchen and the artist Albrecht Dürer as toy figurine. Actually Nuremberg is for both pretty famous. By the way a big exhibition with the works of the young Dürer will open on May 24th. A good reason to go back to Nuremberg soon.
Nuremberg (Nürnberg) is still surrounded by a city wall to a large extend. From my hotel located next to the wall I had this excellent view of the guard’s walkway.
Steam locomotive 41.360 dating back to 1940 seen at a locomotive parade at the Bus & Railway Festival in Fürth. This locomotive is member of the DRB Class 41 and is still operated by the German club ‘Dampflok-Tradition Oberhausen e.V.’
A tramcar of the series 700/800 dating back to 1925 seen in Nuremberg (Nürnberg).
My first view of Nuremberg after leaving the train and standing in the hall of Nuremberg central station: A tower called Frauentorturm dating back to 14th century. The tower is placed near the Handwerkerhof, a court full of shops selling traditional products and craftsmanship.
