Hersbruck
The Essential
This former lively fortified town lies at the point where the valley widens out. You can see the remains of medieval fortifications and handsome old buildings. Be sure to admire the Church of St Maria with its Late Gothic altar, and the Pastoral Museum, devoted to popular arts and traditions. From the bridge over the Pegnitz, you can see the gate of the Wassertor (residential tower) and its stone toll booth.
