Historic Covered Bridge
Dec 2019
This was part of an old wine storage complex (now mostly a school), but we took advantage of the covered bridge to take in yet another view of the river, and get some good photos.

Beautiful and old!

We were not able to visit the small museum inside, but did get to view the beautiful area. You must definitely visit the area for the landscape and the river.

No comparison with other museums

Having just spent a full week, visiting some of the many museums, in Nuremburg, we have to agree with the review from "izzy96". An interesting venue, certainly and well worth a photograph from several angles, but not worth 2 Euros entrance fee, when most of the others only charge 6 Euros and even include an audio guide, in English, for at least 2 or 3 hours' viewing. Knowing, in advance, that this is the Hangman's House, anybody with a modicum of intelligence could imagine the sort of information provided on the walls of two very small rooms, inside. In fact, we suggest that it could all be easily paraphrased, on a wall outside!

Yes; it's tiny, but only 2 Euros and interesting
May 2018 • Couples
Interesting to see how the house was built over the river, the history of its occupants, and what happened when the river would flood. Yes, it's small, and it helps if you know German, but it is a good view with interesting architecture.

quite impressive

A social enterprise well executed and it was done quite a long time ago. Even now people get help and understand the place is very clean.

Do not go in a waste of time and money
May 2017 • Solo
It is only 2 euros to go in, but if you are not able to read German there is absolutely nothing to see - there is 2 rooms with information boards which have lots of writing in German on them and each of them has a couple of sentences in English which is very basic. There is no audio guide or other information formats in English. Apart from the information boards there is nothing else, no artefacts, nothing. The area is lovely and well worth a visit but they should either supply the same information in English as there is in German ( the amount of information in German cannot equate to the sentence in English). Save your money and give it to the statue guy who stands near Lorenzkirche, it was more rewarding and exciting to see him move when placing money in his tin.

You cross the Hangman's bridge in order to get to his house, das Henkel Haus. Sadly during the winter it is only open on the weekends. The house is neat though as it is built out over the water and connects to the Weinstadl next door. I had my picture taken on front of it because it is so neat.

A beautiful,nice rehabilitated building,in fact a house built on a bridge that spans over the Pegnitz river.That's the interesting part.On the other hand,inside is not much to see...only some written information about the executioner's history.You don't need more than 20 minutes to see all.

Small museum that overlooks the River Pieglitz offering beautiful view of Nuremberg. Gives a glimpse intolerant German law of the time period!
