The Ox at Meat Bridge

The Fleischbrücke is a bridge over the Pegnitz between Kaiserstrasse and Hauptmarkt (right next to the biggest Starbucks in town...), and there's also a small portal with an ox on it, watching the people passing by, which I only recently noticed. According to Wikipedia the inscription means "All things have a beginning and grow, but look: never has been the ox you see a calf".

Partner towns

A part of the Christkindlesmarkt is reserved for stalls from the partner towns of Nuremberg, who sell souvenirs and special food from their countries. This poster lists all of them: Antalya (Turkey), Atlanta (USA), Bar (Montenegro), Brasov (Rumania), Charkiw (Ukraine), Gera (Germany ;-), formerly GDR), Glasgow (Scotland), Hadera (Israel), Kalkudah (Sri Lanka), Kavala (Greece), Klausen (Italy / South Tyrol), Krakau (Poland), Nice (France), Prague (Czech Republic), San Carlos (Nicaragua), Shenzhen (China), Skopje (Macedonia), Venice (Italy), Verona (Italy), and the region of Limousin (France).

Quite a list!
