Bridges | Nuremberg

Which Bridge?

Nuremberg certainly has a lot of bridges within. Understandably so since it is situated on the Pegnitz river and the Rhine–Main–Danube Canal, the former flowing through the city center. They may not be as many as the bridges of Venice but they add charm to historical Nuremberg’s appeal.

Coming from the Fleischbrücke’s other side we moved to the left on that supposedly summer day, here’s what I saw – a restaurant terrace by the riverside overflowing with pelargonias. Parasols paraded too and went accordingly with the flowers’ color.

Looking beyond the terrace you’ll see another bridge which I don’t know the name of…this one is crowded too but without the vendors…on our side were souvenir carts of different sorts. There, on their side, were just people passing by, one or two playfully fetching water with a pail pulling it up and down with a rope. Can’t tell what they’re up to.

  1. I think i’ve seen a postcard of this somewhere. i love postcards of bridge/s.

    thank you for playing sis. sorry for the late visit. 🙂

  2. I forgot to say that the flowers are indeed beautiful! I’d like to have a garden full of Pelargonias too.
