THE HISTORY

Built at the Unschlittplatz in 1800, the guests at the HOTEL HAUSER enjoy their stay in a cozy and historic atmosphere. The Unschlittplatz, with its medieval buildings, is one of the few surviving historical ensembles of the city of Nuremberg and continues on the southern bank of the Pegnitz with the Unschlitthaus the former city wall

KASPAR HAUSER

The Unschlittplatz attained nationwide prominence when KASPAR HAUSER appeared there on May 26, 1828 and addressed two Nurembergers at the corner of House No. 8. The fate and the origin of the unknown and his violent death in Ansbach in 1833 occupied the world at that time and has led to countless researches and literary editions to this day. Not only a commemorative plaque at Haus Unschlittplatz No. 8, but also a street monument by artist Sabine Richter are reminiscent of Kaspar Hauser. She has incorporated a poem about Kaspar Hauser by the Polish lyric poet Ryszard Krynicki in German and Polish on a 12 meter long strip of metal embedded in the pavement of the Unschlittplatz. Northwest of the Unschlittplatz between Mittlerer Kreuzgasse and Unterer Kreuzgasse is one of the central squares of the Kreuzgassenviertel. Located on the banks of the Pegnitz near the Kettensteg, it was named in 1989 in Kaspar-Hauser-Platz.
