Steet of human rights

KartäusergasseThe “Street of Human Rights” is the most important public work of art in Nuremberg.

Füll

The unusual name for this street of houses can be traced back to a filled-in ditch on this site. It is the best-preserved historical street of houses in Nuremberg, with a row of noble town houses and merchant houses. The most attractive of these are numbers 6, 8 and 12.

Breite Gasse

The Breite Gasse was the starting point of the pedestrian zone in Nuremberg. In 1966 this street and the Pfannenschmiedgasse were developed into the first traffic-free zone in Nuremberg. Unfortunately, due to extremely high rents and the coming of large department stores, the pedestrian zone has lost a lot of its original character in the course of the years.

…and I thought that only in our country we have market places, where you can bargain for the price. Silly me… 🙂 Here, you can lower the price 3, sometimes 4 times from the original price for anything you can find on the market place!
