    Industrial ruin, which is definitely worth a stop. Great ambience and some interesting information panels on the history of the hammer.

    Already in the 14th century (1372) was in Hammer a mill from which gradually developed an industrial estate. From the year 1492 it is known that there was a brass hammer next to the mill. The industrial settlement Hammer is located outside Nuremberg's city center, east in the district of Laufamholz. This had advantages and disadvantages in earlier centuries. Advantage: One did not succumb to the restrictions of the Nuremberg industrial code. Disadvantage: The settlement did not enjoy the protection of the city wall and was destroyed in the second margrave war (1552). The reconstruction of the hammer mill as a wire drawing mill was carried out by the Kanler family. In order to prevent renewed destruction, the area was surrounded by a wall (except the river side).

    The "Fabrikgut Hammer" is station 26 of the Pegnitztal - Ost nature trail and deals with the history of the property, the site and the factory. The area has been a listed building as an industrial history ensemble since 1977. It is freely accessible all year round and can be visited. The museum is open from Easter to October.

    It is worth stopping here for a photo or two and snapping up information about the story! Especially the light-shadow play of the buildings / ruins is wonderful in the sun!
