At the foot of the Nockherberg, within the southern Munich suburb 'Südlichen Au', there are only a few, still intact examples of the so called 'Herbergshäusl' (workman’s cottages) which used to be so typical of this area. They were built along the steep, former bank of the river Isa, presenting themselves to the street in many different forms and colours. Steep narrow stairs lead up the hill giving access to their - mostly provisional – rear buildings which have been altered over the years depending on the changing uses people had for them. As one climbs even higher over countless irregular concrete steps, one will be rewarded with lush green garden terraces, chirping birds and distant views towards Munich’s city centre. The NOCKI is one of these back houses within this rare, unique, patch worked, heritage listed building ensemble.
