    As "Langer bridge" he was built in 1320/25 to connect the two halves of the city of Nuremberg, Sebald and Lorenz. The Henkersteg today bridges the southern Pegnitzarm and leads from the Unschlitthaus to the western part of the flea market, directly to the Henkerturm. It owes its name to the hangman's apartment in this tower. In the spring of 1595 the Henkersteg, together with eight onlookers, fell victim to the devastating flood.

    The Henkersteg was reconstructed in 1954 and is now part of the historic mile of Nuremberg. Definitely worth seeing!

    The Henkersteg is a footbridge over the Pegnitz, which begins at the Henkerturm; it connects the St. Lorenz district with the flea market on an island in the Pegnitz.
