Gleißhammer has been a district of Nuremberg since 1899 and the name of the statistical district 29 . It is located southeast of the center.


The original hamlet of Gleißhammer was on the open ground at the Zeltnerweiher , which is fed by the Goldbach , a left tributary of the Pegnitz . Today the district in the north consists mainly of four to five-story town houses that were built in the 1910s and 20s.

The place was first mentioned in a document in 1336. The mill was then operated as a hammer mill.

Towards the end of the 18th century there were 11 properties in Gleißhammer (1 glass loop, 9 goods, 1 tavern). The high court exercised the imperial city of Nuremberg , but this was contested by the Brandenburg-Ansbach Oberamt Schwabach and the Brandenburg-Bayreuth Vogtamt Schönberg . The sole landlord was King of Königsthal.

In the same year the rural community Gleißhammer was formed, which was congruent with the tax district. In administration and jurisdiction it was subordinate to the Regional Court of Nuremberg and in financial administration to the Fürth Rent Office . In voluntary jurisdiction, the entire place was subject to the Gleißhammer patrimonial court until 1835 . In 1825, Dürrenhof, Bottlenhof, Gleißbühl, Glockenhof, Hadermühle, Kressengarten, Neubleich, St. Peter, stables in front of the Frauentorgraben, Vogelsgarten and Wölkershof were incorporated into Nuremberg. From 1862 Gleißhammer was administered by the Nuremberg District Office . Jurisdiction has been with the Nuremberg District Court since 1880 . The financial management was taken over in 1871 by the Nuremberg Rent Office ( renamed the Nuremberg Tax Office in 1920 ). The municipality had an area of ​​3,330 km².

With industrialization, the original village became a district characterized by hammer mills and metalworking companies such as the toy manufacturer Bing .

Worth seeing is primarily the Zeltner castle (also Zeltner-castle ), a former manor house in a small, dammed pond. This seat, first mentioned in 1370, was built to protect a hammer mill , an early industrial water mill for sheet metal production. The complex was destroyed in the Second Margrave War in 1552 and rebuilt on a larger scale around 1569 by the Nuremberg patrician Jakob Imhoff . After several changes of ownership, the flood-damaged castle was taken over and restored by the politically and culturally committed factory owner Johannes Zeltner . Since then it has been called the Zeltnerschloß .

The roof originally carried the corner bay windows typical of Nuremberg mansions. After the destruction in World War II , however, they were not rebuilt. Today there are apartments and a culture shop in the Zeltner Castle .
