  • Then, in 1988, the fountain of Jürgen Weber met with fierce criticism. The artwork is neo-Baroque kitsch, etc. Today, the fountain of fools ship among attractions in Nuremberg. So the times are changing. I mean, that distinguished the fountain sculpture in the overall ensemble of the nameless square between the Museum bridge, Spitalgasse and Plobenhofgasse inserts.

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.
