Nuremburg, part 2

Knowing that they were called the Nuremburg Trials, if you thought about it hard enough, you'd know that the city saw a lot of action in WWII. But before that, the city had a very impressive history from the 1300's. The castle is at the top of a large hill, and used to have a wall that enclosed the entire city. The city has since spread, but you can still find parts of the wall around the city. Top to bottom:

The hangman's house. Seriously. Who'd you have to kill to live there? Ba dum dum. (Thanks, I'll be here all week, try the veal.)

I'm blanking on the name of that church and I'm too lazy to go look it up. It was bombed to the ground and rebuilt. Inside, it's amazing but you're not allowed to take pictures.

That's really what a lot of the city looks like. That's just a random street that is pretty.

A castle wall- you can see where it's been repaired, post-war.

Another view.
