The Old Town at Dusk

History and Nuremberg Tales, Familiar and Unfamiliar

For over 400 years the ox on the Slaughterhouse Bridge has watched over the portal to the former slaughterhouse. But what does the atin inscription under it actually mean?

Our route takes us along the Pegnitz River to the Bagpiper and Kaspar Hauser at the Unschlittplatz (former tallow storehouse), over the Max Bridge to the house of Albrecht Dürer.

We learn where the street name "Am Ölberg" (Mount of Olives) comes from, what the Sebald square looked like in past centuries and how the figure of Christ on the Church of St. Sebald ended up blackened.

Have we aroused your curiosity? Underway you'll also hear some of the legends and tales relating to Nuremberg.
