The Nassauer house is the last preserved medieval residential tower in the Nuremberg Old Town. The lower floors and the basement were built in the early 13th Century.
This in the Middle Ages often used type of building served as a fortified residence of wealthy patricians.
On the top floor below the battlements is to see a frieze with coat of arms of the king, the Pope and of the seven electors.
At the corners are located 3 oriels. The top floor and also the Chancel on the east side were added in the first half of the 15th Century by the at that time owner Ulrich Ortlieb.
At the basement is now a restaurant, the "Nassauer Keller."
The designation "Nassauer house" based on a erroneous reference to King Adolf of Nassau in the 15th Century.
