Der alte Hafen
lag seit dem 14. Jh. bis 1912 zentral inmitten der Stadt am linken Regnitzarm. Mit
Kränen (1) wurden die flachen Lastkähne (2)
der Regnitzschiffer be- und entladen. Die
Schiffe fuhren flussabwärts über Main und
Rhein bis in die Niederlande, ab 1846 auch
flussaufwärts durch den Ludwig-Donau-Main-

Das Schlachthaus (3)
1740 zur Hälfte über dem Wasser gebaut, entsorgte seine Abfälle direkt in die Regnitz. Man
erkennt es noch leicht an dem steinernen
Ochsen mit echten Hörnern im Giebelfeld.

Das Hochzeitshaus (Am Kranen 12)
konnte von Bürgern der Stadt für Feste angemietet werden. Das hohe Renaissancegebäude
(4) ist heute, ebenso wie das Schlachthaus, Teil
der Universität. Links neben dem Portal befinden sich mehrere Hochwassermarken.-
(English translation:)
The old harbor was situated on the left arm of the Regnitz River from the 14th century through 1912. Cranes (1) were used to load and unload the flat barges (2) that plied the Regnitz, with the ships sailing downstream via the Main and Rhine rivers to the Netherlands,

and from 18466, sailing upstream also via the Ludwig-Donau-Main canal.

The slaughterhouse(3) was built in 1740, with of the structure above the water, its waste was disposed of directly into the river Regnitz. One may yet easily recognize the building by its stone ox with real horns situated below the gable.

The Wedding House (Am Kranen 12)
could be rented by citizens of the city for celebrations. The high Renaissance building
(4), as well as the slaughterhouse, is part
the University today. To the left of the portal are several high water marks from previous floods.
