Dürer

 


"The Albrecht Dürer Monument is the first in Germany to honor an artist. Today, Albrecht Dürer still looks down at the Albrecht-Dürer-Platz from his pedestal above. In the 19th century, the bronze statue near the Dürer House became a place of pilgrimage for art lovers and respected artists of that time.

The cornerstone of the monument was laid in April 1828. On that day, a Dürer celebration took place in Nuremberg. Artists and academics from all over Germany came to Nuremberg to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Dürer’s death.

The monument was designed by Christian Rauch from Berlin and cast by Jacob Burgschmiet. Burgschmiet had an art foundry in Johannis, not far away from where the statue is located. The monument was festively dedicated in 1840 on the Milk Market (today’s Albrecht-Dürer-Platz) and marked the beginning of many pleasant Dürer celebrations in the city." -- Nürnberger Quarter

Chörlein

 


"The Nürnberger Chörleins often served as private chapels with a sort of choir protruding onto the street. But purely profane use is also widespread. This clearly visible architectural feature probably represented a certain prosperity anyway." -- Travelwriticus.com

Schöner Brunnen

 


Schöner Brunnen (en:beautiful fountain) is a 14th-century fountain located on Nuremberg's main market next to the town hall and is considered one of the main attractions of the city's Historical Mile. The fountain is approximately 19 meters high and has the shape of a Gothic spire.


Männleinlaufen

 


"One of the most notable features of the church is the Männleinlaufen, a mechanical clock that commemorates the Golden Bull of 1356. The clock was installed in the church between 1506 and 1509. The Holy Roman Emperor is shown seated with the prince-electors surrounding him.

The clock mechanism is activated at midday, when a bell is rung to start the sequence and is followed by the trumpeters and drummer. Then there is a procession of the electors around the figure of the Holy Roman Emperor." -- Wikipedia
