Going to the Main square we saw this nice Gothic building, which used to be a granary and customs office. It was built between1498-1502. It was an important building to supply the inhabitants of the city. It was converted into a department store, and now there are many shops in it. It’s worth a few photos.

In the city of Nuremberg you can see the “Mauthalle” a famous building who has being built around the year 1500 and this by by Hans Behaim, “Mauthalle or tollgate” has initially served as a granary to supply the inhabitants of Nuremberg. But a second function was added about 70 years later: the municipal customs office moved in. From now on goods from all over the world were checked and weighed here. Nice building to visit on a sightseeing in the city.

Saw this opposite our hotel and its beautiful. It was rebuilt after the war which is why there are two dates on the building. Inside a few shops and a rather nice brewery

I believe that this building has been rebuilt on its original locale since most of the city was destroyed during WWII. The bottom half is brick (which would not have been used in the Middle Ages) and the upper half is timber. It now houses numerous shops on the ground floor. Worth a quick photo or two.

A very big building but with not a very special architecture.Placed in the center of old town,in a busy area.In the past it used to be the customs house.Now it houses different shops and a good traditional restaurant -Barfusser.

Huge midieval structure, half timbered and stone construction. Located right on the main thoroughfare The Konigstrasse in the Old Town.. Originally a granary and customs house, it now serves as a department store!!! Oh well, I guess that's progress!

It's right across from the Gideon Hotel where I was staying so I got a great look at this restored toll hall: intricate beauty.

The Toll Hall (Mauthalle) was built above the last-but-one city moat between 1498 and 1502 by Hans Beheim the Elder as an Imperial Corn Store.

Carts could be driven into the house from both narrow sides of the three-storey sandstone building with its five attic storeys. Hatches for a block-and-tackle above the gable axes and on the eaves sides assisted in transporting the goods inside.

Today, the cellar vault supported by 26 pillars houses a restaurant with its own micro-brewery. from nuernberg.de.

it nice building & but not unique desgin.
