...way to describe the Human Rights in numerous languages but still very interesting. We thought that the wording on the main gate maybe a bit of a mistake, see what we mean?

We did this walk while visiting the Germanic History Museum. It is a pleasant place adjacent to the museum. It is unlike anything we've seen before. A welcome respite from the rest of Old Nuremberg.
