Pegnitz River, Nürnberg: 9 reviews and 26 photos

  River Pegnitz, Nuremberg
by antistar

Nuremberg is at its most exquisite down by the river Pegnitz, which cuts straight down the middle of the Altstadt winding its way under a jumble of bridges. I particularly love the way the buildings hang over into the water, and some are even built over it on stone stilts. There are also some magnificent old buildings by the water's edge, like the Hospital of the Holy Spirit, the Weinstadl and Hangman's Bridge. If you just look at the pictures I took along the river's bridges it doesn't even look like it came from a city, more like a big town, which is exactly how many people describe Nuremberg.
