Charming setting either side of the river with the castle high on one side. Some nice quiet spaces along the river which was a bit of a surprise, and some interesting buildings. Worth a visit for sure. Not many foreign tourists which was good.

This has to be one of the most beautiful Old Towns in Europe. Gothic and medieval. Churches, town square, fountains, towers, etc., which merge with the usual retail shops in a pedestrian area. Excellent public transport with U-Bahn and buses. Compact, we walked up from the train station, past St Lorenz Church, and into the Hauptmarkt, a 30-minute stroll at... More

Nurnberg certainly is worth a visit. It has a long history, which is clearly reflected in the old town, despite the fact that much of it was destroyed during the second world war. It pretty much has it all, a famous castle, beautiful churches, old architecture, a nice river with bridges and islands, world class museums, excellent restaurants. You name... More

If one is visiting Nuremberg, visiting the old city is a must. With all the old beautiful building and architecture to view as well as many different wonderful tasty restaurants to sample, it is easy to lose track of time in it. The old city has many nice pedestrian only streets which make wandering around it all the more safe... More

The Altstadt is a great place as you can do a lot of things: sightseeing, shopping, exploring, dining etc. There are markets on Thur/Fri & Saturday's and other bigger stalls/markets during Easter/ Christmas which are recommendable. Something's for all age groups from young to old and if you are too tired from walking, sit at one of the terrace bars... More

This street can't be missed because it connect most of the sites in Nuremberg, you can find anything here from food, clothes, groceries, sweets...etc. and the price is right don't forget to eat ice cream in glass, and buy grounded coffee for back home. I personally found the prices here to be the best in Europe. C U Around

On Thursdays, Fridays, & Saturdays the Farmers Market offers many fresh foods, fruits and vegatables. Great places to eat include Boehm's Herrenkeller, Heilig Geist Spital and Bratwurst Roslein. Bocksbeutelstuben is a favorite place for wine and beer. Lots... More
