Every traveler is looking for something different on vacation. Some want great food; others, history and art. Fortunately, Nuremberg has it all. Journey to the past with a walk through the old town, sip a pint of Bavarian beer or marvel at the masterpieces of Albrecht Durer in one of the many museums. There is also the location: Because Nuremberg is in Germany’s geographic center, it is a convenient stop on any European trip. If you ever need to find a nice and affordable place to stay in Nuremberg check out the collection of Nuremberg vacation rentals on Live Like a German. If you still need convincing, here are five reasons why Nuremberg must be part of your trip to Germany.
1. Nuremberg Castle
This breathtaking castle, perched on a sandstone bluff above the city, is evidence of Nuremberg’s prominence in the Middle Ages. The city was an administrative center of the Holy Roman Empire, and many trade routes passing through led to wealth and power. Today, visitors can see this past glory in Nuremberg Castle and the attached museum. The top of the castle offers great views of the surrounding city. Underneath the castle, hundreds of tunnels and rooms are carved into the rock. These underground spaces, once used as beer cellars and storage rooms, are open for tours.
2. Historic architecture
The castle is not the only sign of Nuremberg’s long past. Gothic churches, historic houses and other medieval structures line the streets of the old town. Go for a stroll. You will feel like you are in the 15th century. Though Allied bombs damaged many buildings in World War II, extensive restorations mean that all of the buildings maintain their original appearance.
3. Delicious Nurnbergers
The people of Nuremberg love biting into a juicy Nurnberger, the city’s special sausage. Nurnbergers are similar to Frankfurters, which are more well-known abroad, but many feel that Nuremberg’s distinctive sausage is more delicious. Though smaller than Frankfurters, they have more spices. Enjoy a plate of Nurnbergers with bread and sauerkraut any time of day.
4. Amazing museums
Nuremberg’s 49 museums mean that museum lovers will never run out of places to go. The largest is the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, which displays a massive collection of German cultural artifacts from prehistory to the present. Also of note is the house of Renaissance master Albrecht Durer.
5. Accesibily to other placs
One of the real beautys of Germany is the amazing public transport. You can be in Berlin and all it’s history, Munich and all its beer, Cologne with their Escort Agency Cologne or Dortmund with it’s footy team. In a matter of hours you can be on the other side of the country.
