Artist's Description

Bridge with a covered walkway from Weinstadel towards the Hangman’s Bridge, Nuremberg, Germany
The Wine Store (Weinstadel) is one of Nuremberg’s most beautiful buildings. Two half-timbered storeys rise above the ground floor fashioned from sandstone ashlars. The front towards the river Pegnitz boasts wooden galleries with metal gargoyles, and there is a bridge with a covered walkway towards the Hangman’s Bridge. During the 13th century, this was the course of the “last-but-one city fortification”, which connected the two parts of the town by bridging the river Pegnitz.
From about 1571, the building served as a wine store, later on as a work house and spinning house and as accommodation for poor families.
