In Today's Daily Jigsaw Puzzle, we see the Hangman's Bridge, or "Henkersteg," - a historic bridge over the Pegnitz River in Nuremberg, Germany. Built in 1457, this wooden pedestrian bridge was an access route for the city's executioner, who lived in the nearby Hangman's Tower, or "Henkerhaus." The executioner's isolated residence was a result of the stigma associated with his grim profession.

The bridge was reconstructed in 1595 following flood damage and has since become an iconic symbol of Nuremberg's medieval past. The half-timbered Henkerhaus, now a museum, provides insight into the life and work of the city's executioner and offers a glimpse into Nuremberg's judicial history.

Nuremberg is a city steeped in history, dating back to the 11th century. Its strategic location made it a crucial center for trade and commerce during the Middle Ages. By the 13th century, Nuremberg had established itself as one of the most important cities in the Holy Roman Empire, celebrated for its contributions to arts, culture, and craftsmanship.

The city flourished during the Renaissance, becoming a hub for artists, scientists, and inventors. Renowned painter Albrecht Dürer was among the prominent figures who called Nuremberg home. The city also played a significant role in the Reformation, hosting several important religious and political discussions.

Nuremberg was known for its Imperial Castle, which hosted numerous imperial diets (assemblies) and contributed to the city's reputation as an imperial city. Its rich architectural heritage includes stunning medieval structures, such as the Church of St. Sebaldus and the Church of St. Lawrence.

In the 20th century, Nuremberg gained notoriety during the Second World War as the site of major Nazi rallies. Post-war, it became known for the Nuremberg Trials, where key figures of the Nazi regime were prosecuted.

Today, Nuremberg is a vibrant city that honors its historical roots while embracing modernity. It features well-preserved medieval architecture, numerous museums, and cultural festivals, attracting visitors from around the world. An interesting fact about Nuremberg is that it is home to the world's oldest continuously operating Christmas market, known as the "Christkindlesmarkt." The market dates back to the early 17th century, with its first documented mention in 1628. The market is held annually in the main square and features traditional stalls selling handmade ornaments, toys, and local food specialties such as gingerbread (Lebkuchen) and sausages. The Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt attracts visitors worldwide and is renowned for its festive atmosphere and historic charm ♥

@bevpuzzler I am writing a novel about those times. Would love to get a critique from someone who remembers it. Would you be willing to read some of it and let me know what you think?
