    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.

    Despite of being one of the most important city in the Holy Roman Empire, Nuremberg did not have its own town hall until 14th century. Construction of Gothic edifice, located to the east from St. Sebald Church, and on the right, North bank, of Pegnitz River started in 1332 under direction of city's architect Philip Gross. Wars, Craftsmen's Uprising, recurrences of Black Death plague, pogroms of Jews, or later in 16th century conflicts between Catholics and Protestants, all these did not stop city from growth. Having acquired city rights along with other privileges Nuremberg flourished despite of all these calamities. Its most know and celebrated citizen, Albrecht Durer, designed and directed executing of wall and ceiling painting for Rathaus' great hall. It was, at the time, the largest wall and ceiling painting in Europe, surpassed only by Sistine Chapel. Durer's work was a part of major renovation works ordered by city council in the first half of 16th century. One hundred years later another great works were undertaken during which town hall acquired its elongated, monumental West Facade with Baroque portals. under city's master builder and architect Wolf Jacob Stromer. What we can see today is from the West its Renaissance elevation with strong influence of Italian architecture. South - East part of Town Hall building preserved its original Gothic elements. Beneath the Great Hall are located medieval dungeons where guided tour can take you to the torture chambers and prison cells. In Ehrenhalle, on the ground floor, are kept replicas of imperial regalia. Unfortunately, none of the Durer's wall paintings has survived. They were destroyed during WWII, after heavy bombing in 1944-45.

    The main train station in Munchen is huge and despite its indicative signs being very informative, the actual services provided, such as the information desk weren't very well organized - just two desk operators for hundreds of passengers queuing to either purchase tickets (particularly those not speaking German and thus unable to use the machines). We found the staff spread along the premises to be very kind, even if they weren't particularly able to help us.

    Arriving and exiting from the train station the tower is the first historical thing you see and following the road leads you to the heart of Old town.

    This was a pleasant surprise for as I thought it was just an old clock tower but this is actually an imposing entrance to the subway station. Very nice.

    An interesting little building that wasn't on the list of things to see, but was well worth stopping to take a peep at. Close to all the main city centre attractions.

    Had a great at the winery! Was so disappointed with the food at barrel house grill, the burgers were cold and when we told them the brisket was missing from the food they brought us a bowl of brisket that was still frozen. I’m hoping it was because it was the second day they opened after lockdown.
    Still had a great time overall.. Sean who did our wine tasting was fabulous.

    Wetterhäuschen (Weather House) is a fun landmark just in front of St. Lorenz Church in Nuremburg. Constructed in 1878, Wetterhäuschen provides weather conditions, forecasts, barometric pressure and water levels of the Pegnitz. Do have a look at the dials on the side of small building.

    Destroyed during the war, Wetterhäuschen was reconstructed in 1978. These days, the landmark is a popular meeting place for lovers in front of the church. You can conveniently see Wetterhäuschen before or after your visit to St. Lorenz. Give it a quick look-see before continuing onward with other intended sightseeing in the area.
