Handwerkerhäuschen "Am Ölberg" below the castle in Nuremberg The Handwerkerhäuschen belong to the important architectural monuments of Nuremberg's old town. They lie along the lane Am Ölberg at the foot of the Nuremberg Castle. This alley also houses the oldest half-timbered house in Nuremberg dating back to 1338.The craftsmen's cottages were built as small, single-storey residential and workshop houses for craftsmen, with in part only one or two rooms. These were later supplemented, but remained preserved in their medieval core. The original thatched roofs were banned early because of the fire hazard. Only a few of these narrow two-storey houses survived the bombing raids in the Second World War undamaged.

The symbol of Nuremberg. In the late Middle Ages, Nuremberg was considered the "most distinguished and best-situated city in the empire". The city was the scene of numerous imperial assemblies, and from 1356 the "Golden Bull" of Emperor Charles IV stipulated that every newly elected ruler must hold his first court day in Nuremberg. Nuremberg thus became one of the centers of the empire – alongside Frankfurt as the place where the king was elected and Aachen as the place where the king was crowned.
