Nuremberg

Historic Sites Museums Sightseeing

Gingerbread Capital of the World

Nuremberg's historic town center stands in the shadow of a towering imperial castle that dominates its northwestern corner. With a history spanning almost 1,000 years, Nuremberg is often associated with its traditional gingerbread products, sausages, and handmade toys. This vibrant urban center also offers museums, theaters, open-air markets, parks, medieval churches, sports venues, and art galleries. An atmosphere of lively co-existence between the past and the present prevails in Nuremberg; modern structures stand just a few steps away from the largely intact medieval city wall. This city is alive with masses of tourists all year long, but never more so than during its celebrated Christmas market. Nuremberg is known for an atmosphere of tolerance and a very high quality of life. When using our Germany holiday planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay in Nuremberg

The Altstadt and the Egidienviertel districts, the city's historical sections, provide an array of guesthouses and hotels. An alternative is the Gostenhof area, a suburban region with a selection of tourist sites. If you stay in Gostenhof, however, you need to take public transportation to the city center. For local flair, consider staying in the Knoblauchsland district near the Hauptmarkt. Avoid the Südstadt district near the train station, which is mainly residential and doesn't offer many entertainment options or access to sites.
