Great views of the city and cool museum inside! Defenitly worth a visit. And just down the hill you will find the Rathaus where the Nuernberg trials where held!

We loved walking around the castle. Most of the signs are in English but not all. It is just he right length so you don't end up too bored nor overwhelmed. The tower is really fun with great views and the stairwell is really cool....More

The highest part of Nuremberg so great for photos and you don't have to pay anything. We did the castle tour and it was not worth the money especially if not with audio guide as all labels are written in German. Going up the tower...More

Castle is very impressive and interesting to see where Nuremburg trials were held. Like the trams in the city. Nice and clean city, well maintained.

Visited the castle on a cold, rainy April day. There is a bit of information about the history of the castle, the usual medieval weapons and books/papers and a big tower outside (which we couldn't visit that day). Given the whole old fortress-city is quite...More

It comes down to have you been to another Germany old town? If not, then it is a yes. If you have and enjoyed the other one, then I would go. If you do like seeing old buildings/walls or moats, then do not go. I like old... More

Two key areas to visit: old Town and the Holy Roman Emperors Castle (walking tour); and the former Nazi Party grounds and HQ(museum now).
What are the open hours for the Nuremberg Castle during the week (M-F)? Thank you.
