What to see in Nuremberg

Nuremberg, a city in the heart of Bavaria, Germany, weaves a tapestry of history and modernity. Its medieval Old Town boasts well-preserved architecture, while its role in the Nuremberg Trials marks a historic milestone. Today, it's a cultural hub with museums, festivals and a vibrant culinary scene, waiting to be explored.

Perched on a sandstone hill overlooking the city, Nuremberg Castle is an architectural masterpiece and a testament to the city's rich history. Dating back to the 11th century, this imposing fortress offers a captivating journey through the centuries. Begin your visit at the Imperial Castle, which served as the residence of the Holy Roman Emperors. The castle complex comprises a series of well-preserved buildings, including the Imperial Chapel and the stunning Double Chapel. The Double Chapel is a unique structure with two separate chapels stacked on top of each other, showcasing Romanesque and Gothic architectural styles. As you explore the castle grounds, take in the panoramic views of Nuremberg and the surrounding countryside from the Sinwell Tower, which offers a breathtaking vista. Inside the castle, the Deep Well (Tiefer Brunnen) is a remarkable engineering feat, plunging 50 meters into the ground and once serving as a vital source of freshwater during sieges.

A visit to the Nuremberg Documentation Center offers a profound and sombre reflection on Germany's history during the Nazi era. This museum is situated on the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds and provides insight into the propaganda machine and the monumental rallies that took place there. The centrepiece of the museum is the Congress Hall, a massive, unfinished structure that was intended to be the site of massive Nazi rallies. Inside, you can explore the permanent exhibition, Fascination and Terror, which provides a comprehensive look at the rise of the Nazi Party and its devastating consequences. The exhibition includes photographs, documents and multimedia presentations that shed light on this dark period of history.

Nuremberg’s Old Town, or Altstadt, is a captivating tapestry of history and culture, inviting visitors to wander through its medieval streets and soak in the city's charm. Begin your journey at the Hauptmarkt, where the iconic Frauenkirche stands with its distinctive twin towers. This square is not only the heart of the city but also the site of the famous Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt, one of Germany's most renowned Christmas markets. Stroll through the narrow alleys and explore the well-preserved medieval architecture. The Albrecht Dürer House, the former residence of the renowned artist, offers a glimpse into the life and work of this influential figure in German Renaissance art.
