While Nuremberg and the surrounding areas are better known for its various and rich beer brewing culture, other parts of Franconia are good at making wine as well. For some reason they like to use these oddly shaped wine bottles called "Bocksbeutel".
Here they are empty and hanging in front of a wine tavern on Trödelmarkt, happily reflecting me and the houses around me.
I'll be travelling for a few days, so Nuernberg Photos takes a short break. See you again soon!

View from Karlsbrücke. A quiet place, only a stone's throw away from the shopping streets and cafes and tourist attractions of the old town. The water is the river Pegnitz, which divides the historical city into a northern ("Sebaldstadt", named after its main church, St. Sebald) and a southern part ("Lorenzstadt" after St. Lorenz).

Not all parts of the old town are pretty and picturesque, most of them are normal houses (many of them build in the early 50's, guess why) inhabited by normal people -- who still have a very nice view out of their kitchen windows.
Obere Wörthgasse, view to St. Sebald.

View over the market to St. Sebald. The market is open all day, every day but sunday, with fresh produce from the area around Nuremberg and from farther away (the stall in front says "specialties from the mediterranean"). In May and June, everybody is crazy for asparagus and strawberries.

The "Blue Night" (Blaue Nacht) is a large event happening in various galleries, theaters, other cultural venues and on the streets of Nuremberg every year in early summer. These spotlights have illuminated St. Lorenz in an eery blue in the evening, a few hours after this picture was taken yesterday.
