Take time to see the street of old half timber architecture that is captivating in its structure and colors. A great place to walk and take in the local scene. A perfect place for the photographer to get a lovely shot.

Charming street in the old town of Nuremberg! Typical houses , cobbled street, little eateries lining the street makes this gem a place worth to make a detour to see it.

Picturesque street in the Old Town with good examples of period properties - mostly renovated/ restored after WW2. Bit of a tourist magnet for some reason- nothing to do but walk it really.

What a nice way to spend half an hour on a sunny afternoon! This street is just a nice place to walk on your way through the city center. Beautiful buildings; lots of opportunities for selfies!

This is a lovely street to take a stroll. Great architecture on both sides of the street. You will spend a lot of time looking upwards!

Wow. This street is so historical lined with immaculate architecture that I just sat and viewed the detailed homes for a while.

Walking through this area of Nuremberg provides one with examples of old architecture as well as with a number of photo opportunities. It is free, easily accessible, and worth a few minutes of one's time.

Picture perfect street in the middle of old town with shopping and cafes. It is hard to walk as you are looking up at all the beautiful old buildings.

Located directly inside the Halletor (Gate), is the largest collection of half-timber structures in Nuremburg. The name comes from the tanners who lived on this street during the Middle Ages. Stand where the street meets Maxpaltz for an excellent photo. (Like the one here.)
