The gardens

The carefully devised new design aims for a balance between historical Renaissance gardens and modern gardening practices. Generously proportioned stairs and terraces provide a harmonious connection between the Tucher Mansion and the Hirsvogel Hall, and convey a sense of functional and atmospheric unity. This has become a Renaissance "island" in Nuremberg's university district, an attraction for city residents and tourists alike.

The garden design won the City of Nuremberg Archtectural Award in 2004.
