Neumarkt Oberpfalz

October 10, 2009

The entrance to the Nurnberg Hauptbahnhof

Old Nazi Helmuts and Uniforms. In Germany, it is illegal to show the swastika, so all the relics are temporarily covered with tape or magents. So all the white circles you see in the picture are just covering up the symbol.

Again with the censorship. Here we have flags and medals awarded to Nazi soldiers.

A rock band playing in Kunst Verein (Art Union). It was once an SS training warehouse, now turned into an Anti-Fascist music venue.

The church of Nurnberg.

Nurnberg’s biggest contrabution to Bavarian culture – the Nurnberg Bratwurst. As always, served with saurkraut and a Helles Bier.
