Pinsteps. The Beautiful Fountain Nurnberg; Schöner Brunnen
Places to visit in Nuremberg. Languages: en, he, ru

Behind the small wooden houses with beautiful New Year crafts hides one of the most famous sights of Nuremberg - the beautiful fountain. The Beautiful Fountain (Schönbrunnleitung) was built around 1388. Two springs fed it in Gleißhammer, far from Nurnberg. The pipe was originally made of wood, was later partially replaced by lead and was in use as one of the oldest utility water pipes in Nuremberg until the 20th century. An ancient local tradition tells that if you twirl the ring in the fence, then the wishes will come true. A young apprentice mounted this ring in a fence that was made by a master. He wanted to prove his skills and get married to the daughter of the master. But, the master turned out to be stupid and lost not only a good student but also a worthy son-in-law.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

The first acquaintance with Nuremberg of Nov 29, 2019

We start the walk from the Big Round Tower on the main street of the city, which leads to the old town through the courtyard of artisans and St. Lorenz Square, to the central shopping area of the town, where the largest Christmas market in Europe took place annually. On the way, we see the famous museum bridge, the monument "Ship of fools", dine in the tavern of St. Sebald and return to the beginning of the path through Schleifersteg and Charles Bridge.
