    Downtown Nuremberg is great. Lots of restaurants, bars and gelato cafes.

    Don’t stay on the outskirts to save a nickel, find a hotel in the city and enjoy. Plan around special weekends, it can’t get crowded.

    Strictly for WW2 history lovers at it's present form!
    Just a few photos and some reading material in one room of the center - pretty sure it will be quite impressive given the HUGE building when it will be finally finished!
    Entrance should be free or max. 2-3 euros, 6 is too much for what you get. (the excellent Documentation Center in Munich is free btw)
    The area around which admittedly right now is way more interesting, is free for all to walk around and admire.
    Actually from what some locals told me, there was a debate in the city about what to do with all these vast buildings and grounds and I think it was wise to use it both as a (much improved) documentation center and as a place of future cultural events, sports, concerts etc.
    Be prepared for a long-ish ride with the tram to reach this area as it is a little off the city center.

    This is one of the biggest and most famous X'mas Market in Germany and probably the world. The whole market is divided into a few sections with one more for kids. There is so many stuff to see and eat at the market.

    Drop in! This once Catholic, now Protestant Church is different from others we’ve seen….Pop in and take a look. We were lucky enough to be there when a children’s choir was signing right out front…..Beautiful!

    One of the best zoos I have seen. Professional infrastructure, well designed and clean places. The areas for the animals seem comfortable for them and give the natural feeling. The dolphin show is included in the price and fantastic experience. We were there in a rainy day, less visitors, parking was easy.

    We did the arduous walk up to the castle only to miss the last viewing by minutes. Even though we didn’t get to tour the castle, I’m glad we made the trek up. The view was lovely, the grounds were different from other castles. Next time I’ll make sure we make it in time!

    This is the area where the Nazis held their rallies, those infamous rallies which we always see in their propaganda films. The museum here offers some background on the party and their growth.
    Apparently Nuremberg was dear to Hitler's heart, and supposedly he always spoke of it fondly, saying that - geographically - it was not the heart of Germany, but it was the heart of Europe (His Europe, which he planned to conquer).
    If you are interested in this background, I would recommend that you also visit the parade grounds, close by, and simply stand there and imagine what was taking place there in the late 1930s and early 1940s.
    It is still chilling today.

    Nyremburg: the Florence of Germany. A very clean city where you can walk for many hours and see the amazing wooden houses in the old town with the florist balconies. There is a quiet and lovely river in the center of Nuremberg with a lot of different bridges where you can take the photos of your life!

    The Germanisches Nationalmuseum is housed in a ultra-modern structure hooked onto a Medieval cloister. Due to its size, we devoted about five hours over two days to it. The 16th Century galleries included some of Albrecht Dürer’s most famous paintings, with the portraits especially striking. Much of the rest of the museum veered toward the “region’s attic” approach, assemblages of artifacts of more historic than aesthetic interest. The two temporary exhibits were well arranged and explicated, with texts in both German and English. One featured highlights from the museum’s Middle Ages collection, which was being relocated. The other focused on the art of Hans Hoffmann, a contemporary of Dürer’s. In addition to paintings of religious subjects, Hoffmann did some fine depictions of animals.

    My family and I were on a 10-day tour of Germany and Austria. The Nuremberg Trial Courthouse was the most moving and enlightening part of our entire trip. In talking about war crimes and crimes against humanity, I kept thinking about what's going on in Ukraine right now.

    Nuremberg is where toys are very well known. This museum had old old old toys and dolls and was really interesting to see how so many toys have changed over time.

    I was actually surprised to see how large it was.

    This museum details the history of the railways with lots of exhibits including fulsized trains and carriages. (Unfortunately, not much of the information had been translated into English.) There is a large model railway and also an interactive area for younger children.

    Great to get something to eat and buy fresh produce in this market. To top it all of, you will have a view of Frauenkirche.

    This Nürnberg, tourist magnet disappointed us. The rooms in the original section, where the artist and his wife lived had been stripped of their furnishings and decorations, then redone in the 19th Century by a businessman in what he thought would have been the style of a 16th Century middle-class family – lots of dark wood paneling, an interesting chandelier of a three-headed dragon. Texts set under the windows explain Dürer’s life and times, ranging from his childhood to the portrait commissions that brought him prosperity. A modern extension displayed copies of his most famous paintings executed by artists brought in to execute them during the 1928 Dürer Year. Most of the originals hang in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum.

    You visit here and get a chill when you stop and give some thought to what took place here and what their plans were for the future.
    It's a chilling experience when you think of Hitler speaking/ranting at those rallies where 100,000-200,000 Nazis gathered to plot their takeover of the European continent.
    It is in disrepair, so don't expect too much.
    The columns have been removed from the backdrop, but you can still get a sense of what took place, and you can see the grandstand where Hitler stoood to make his speeches.
    Worth a visit and worth a resolution.
