The views from the castle are worth the steep climb. It is especially a great vantage point to see Nuremberg from above to get one's bearings especially of the old city. The reconstruction of Nuremberg after the war is phenomenal.

Worth a walk up for great views of the city. The re-built castle after the war is impressive but not the largest I have seen. We didn't pay for entry so cannot comment on anything else.

The castle is located at the end of town and requires a rather steep climb (not too difficult - but, you may get winded if you do not take it slowly). The view over the city from over the castle wall is quite nice! Apart...More

Although this castle visit is nothing as extensive as those at Edinburgh castle, any of the Loire Valley chateaux, Neuschwannstein or Heidelberg Castle, it is still worth a visit if you are in Nuremberg. It doesn't take long, and is not hard to get to...More

A little bit of a hill climb but well worth it with the views from the top over the city are great. The museum is very interesting and a tower climb is a must. The 'well' story is fascinating.

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
