Pinsteps. Ship of Fools, Nuremberg; Narrenschiff
Places to visit in Nuremberg. Languages: en, he, ru

This contemporary work by Jürgen Verber is based on a book that is over five hundred years old. The text of the medieval writer Sebastian Brant is relevant to this day. Ironically, two years before Christopher Columbus sailed to America, not knowing anything about it, in 1494, Sebastian Brant wrote the book The Ship of Fools. He portrayed deceitful politicians, greedy merchants, corrupt priests, and fake scientists, calling on a ship to sail into the land of fools. Jürgen Verber connected the plot of the book with the images of Albrecht Dürer - a native of Nuremberg and created this monument. In 1987, the statue was bought by the philanthropist Kurt Klutentreter and presented to the city.

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.
