Found it when we headed down from the castle area, walking to the centre. It's very beautiful area with a little outdoor beer garden in the other side of the bridge

If you take your time to stroll through the Old City, hidden gems such as this 1824 pedestrian bridge will greet you. Located to the right as you enter the Hallertor, this neat little suspension bridge provides a scenic crossing across the raging Pegnitz River.

The Kettensteg is an intriguing and interesting bridge along the river. If you are touring the city walls of Nuremberg (and you should), you really need to take a few moments to visit this bridge. This is near the city center - Altstadt (Old Town)...More

Enjoyed sitting outside, basking in the spring sun and watching the gentle flow of the river. The food was great and the beer even better. Happy with the service - left a big tip.

The Kettensteg is worth a slight detour for a quick photogenic view. The history is modestly interesting, but it is not necessary for the appreciation.

When you walk around to see the sites, this is a must on the list. Close to the city center with great views of the river.
