This castle can be done on your own but a knowledgeable tour guide can add significant insights into the history of the location, it’s impotence and the people who governed here. A must see if you visit the city.

I have visited Nürnberg annually for 8 years, but this was my first visit inside the castle. There is a current exhibition (until October 14) on Bavaria's gold, but the highlight is still the chapel. It was built around 1200. It is unusual in that...More
