Tanners' Lane in Nuremberg

The largest ensemble of old artisan houses in Nuremberg can be found in the Weißgerbergasse. Predominantly half-timbered, the historical town houses, often with their own wells and a garden, testify to the affluence that could be attributed to the art of leather making. Instead of the busy tanners in the Middle Ages, the Weißgerbergasse today is populated with cafés, bars, small boutiques and handicraft workshops.
