They were part of a green belt along the city wall, which included 360 gardens with different use and formed the prerequisite for the development of a high -standing garden culture at the gates of the imperial city of Nuremberg. The creation of any citrus plants was created. The green areas were created by patrician families and merchants in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries after the fruit, vegetable and herb gardens in the old town were gradually built on. The magnificent pleasure gardens separated the newly created suburbs from the old town. The city wall formed the physical border. Wealthy citizens have lived in St. Johannis since the early modern period who got a touch of Mediterranean culture into the home garden. The Nuremberg patricians and merchants oriented themselves to the model of the nobility in the garden design. Small ornamental gardens were built in the Renaissance and baroque style and equipped with a variety of wells and figures made of sandstone. There were valuable and exotic limon and pomerance collections in the elaborately designed gardens.

The NSU series of murders refers to nine racially motivated murders of small business owners with immigrant backgrounds in large German cities between 2000 and 2006 by the far-right terrorist group Nationalsozialistischer Untergrund (NSU), including eight of Turkish origin and one of Greek origin. Authorities' investigations focused on the victims themselves and their relatives, resulting in their victimization and stigmatization, while far-right-motivated investigations were rare. In major media outlets, the acts were misled as "Dönermorde", or-according to the title of the murder commission under investigation-the "Bosporus" series of murders, which have been criticised as understatements, platitudes and racism since 2011. The gun, a 7.65 mm Browning caliber Cesk á cz 83 pistol, was seized in the rubble of the last NSU apartment in Zwickau in November 2011.
