On the banks of the Regnitz River, just downstream from the Rathaus (city hall) are the picturesque fishermen's houses of Little Venice (Klein Venedig in German). We photographed the houses from across the river (panorama) and from a boat trip on the river.

|The south end of Little Venice. The buildings were used by the university biology department. The crane was for loading and unloading boats.|
The facade is decorated by a resting cow!
Two more cranes. Because it was raining and not nice weather for walking around town, we took a boat trip on the Regnitz through town and out to the Rhein-Main-Danube canal.
