    I can go back to childhood in this "Museum" and the kids have a chance to play with games that don't sell anymore. The visit takes little time, if you don't have children with you. Attention to the opening and closing times, the Museum is only open until 17:00 and is not open every day

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.
