POTD: Nuremberg's Hangman's Bridge

From 2022 07 12 Nuremberg

Today's photo-of-the-day is from Nuremberg, Germany. It shows the Hangman's Bridge (Henkersteg) over the river Regnitz. Built in 1595, the wooden bridge connects the city to an island where the executioner for the city lived. It's strange how picturesque scenes can have gruesome history.

Bonus photo after the jump.
