    Why Go There?

    Wonderful city in Bavaria, which is the second-largest in Bavaria and secretly the inofficial capital of Franconia. This city has a lot to offer and draws visitors all year round!

    The wonderful city offers many attractions no wonder that for many years the city of Nuremberg was the undeclared capital of the Holy Roman Empire. Even German Kings loved the area and kept their crown jewels there. Nuremberg is rich on architectural wonders such as beautiful historical buildings from different centuries. Unfortunately almost 90 percent got destroyed during World War II. Luckily today most important buildings of the city, including the castle and churches in the Altstadt (old inner city) have been restored and returned the city to it´s former glory. After the Second World War Nuremberg was chosen as the site of the Nuremberg Trials - the war crimes tribunal in 1945.

    As the second largest city Nuremberg has a rich museum landscape, from the house of the world famous Nuremberg Albrecht Dürer genius (who was actually born here) to modern art in new museum. Visitors will find everything here that gladdens the heart of art and culture enthusiasts. In addition Nuremberg offers a variety of attractions like the opera and theatre or many options for indoor and outdoor sport activities. Major sights of the city are within the Altstadt and reachable by foot.

    Tip Visit the most famous christmas market of Germany, the Nuremberger Christmas market 'Christkindlesmarkt'. The Christmas market is wonderfull with wooden stalls with christmas gifts and souvenirs to buy, christmas music, local specialities like Nuremberger sausages and offers a wonderful christmas atmosphere in the centre of the city. Very recommended and an unforgettable experience for everyone.
