Nuernberg, Bavaria. Some time ago this used to be the Henkerhaus, the residence of the executioner. I wonder if the logo was there so that the public could find easily an executioner when they wanted him.

The building used to be part of the wall of the town and it is attached to a bridge for use by the same guy. It seems that people of the time, although they had no apparent issues with death penalty, they kind of disliked the executioner and wanted him isolated from the the regular people...
