We learnt so much about the Holy Roman Empire and the way the emperors were elected and why as well as how they visited. You can't miss the deep well - that was amazing!

We loved coming to the castle, it was well displayed and very pleasant to walk around. We learned the history of the area and its’ rulers with some fantastic displays. Would love to come again in the spring!

Climb up the hill for an amazing view of Nurnberg rooftops. Otherwise not much to see - at least in winter when the gardens we're closed to the public.
