  • Weissgerber Gasse

    Medieval street
    Tanners, who used to work with leather, used to live in this narrow street in the Middle Ages. Today, this street in the old town is home to a host of welcoming cafés, restaurants and shops. The ornamental medieval architecture has been well preserved, making it particularly picturesque.

  • Medieval dungeons

    Not for the faint-hearted
    Nuremberg's dungeons date back to the 14th century and are hidden away in the cellar of the town hall. Prisoners used to be held and examined here before their judgement was executed. Inmates used to be kept in the 12 cells in complete darkness. A glimpse inside the torture chamber and hangman's cell is enough to send a shudder down anyone's spine.

  • Former Wine Depot, Hangman's Bridge and Tower

    Historic Nuremberg
    This is where the city's hangman and his helpers used to live. Today, however, the old official building is home to an exhibition on the legal history of Nuremberg. The former wine depot (Weinstadel) stands next to the tower. This part of the city allows visitors to travel back in time to ancient Nuremberg.

  • Hauptmarkt

    Market square
    Including the two towers of St. Sebaldus Church, the Hauptmarkt is the largest paved market square north of the Alps. Every workday, you’ll find the market stalls lining the 5,000 square metre plaza. During Advent the Hauptmarkt is given over to the world famous «Christkindlesmarkt» Christmas market. The normal market is shifted to the surrounding lanes and streets during this time.

  • Strasse der Menschenrechte

    Unusual
    The Street of Human Rights, actually called the «Strasse der Menschenrechte», is an outdoor sculpture designed by Israeli artist Dani Karavan. The pathway to the main entrance to the «Germanische Nationalmuseums» the second largest museum in the world dedicated to German art and culture, is lined by 27 cement columns bearing articles from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948.

  • Kaiserburg

    Hallmark
    The Imperial Castle, locally called the «Kaiserburg», sits majestically atop the city like a throne. It’s not so much a uniform entity as a structure that seems like a village of winding alleyways with various buildings, romantic courtyards, chapels, towers and stalls stretched across a massive sandstone base.

  • Christkindlesmarkt

    Christmas market
    The oldest and easily the best known Christmas market in the world is opened year after year by the Nuremberg Christ Child. From the end of November until Christmas Eve, thousands come every day to visit the numerous wooden stands selling traditional, often handcrafted Christmas decorations and sweet goods like German gingerbread and almond biscuits. It’s a wonderful experience.

  • Wurzelsepp

    Tea, spices and sweets
    The scents of Wurzelsepp are like walking through an Arabian bazaar. True to their philosophy that “pleasure requires time and tranquillity”, the customers here are advised personally and patiently. That’s good, because it’s not easy to select between the blends of spices and fresh herbs, the special teas and tasty sweets and bonbons. This shop holds an embarrassment of riches. Little tip: the mulled wine sweets are particularly delicious.

  • Nuremberg State Theatre

    Culture at its best
    The Nuremberg State Theatre is a delight, both inside and out. It stages everything that a culture lover could ever wish for – operas, plays, concerts and ballets, to name but a few. The building is open to the public and a visit is well recommended even if there's no time for a performance.

  • Neues Museum

    Art & design
    This impressive museum building is not far from the central railway station. The contrast between the curved, transparent lightness of the nearly 100-metre glass façade and the massive city defence wall alone is fascinating. As the name suggests, the museum houses two separate collections under one roof: international contemporary art and design items.

  • City Museum Fembohaus

    Late Renaissance
    This building is of special note because it is Nuremberg's only preserved merchant house dating from the Late Renaissance period. While its exterior is an example of architectural beauty, the building itself is home to exhibits tracing 950 years of the city's history. Visitors are catapulted back to Nuremberg’s medieval past.

  • Document Centre

    Reichsparteitagsgelände (NS Party Rally Grounds)
    The remains of gigantic buildings on the former political party rally grounds testify to the megalomania of the National Socialist regime. The Document Centre is located in the northern wing of the convention hall designed but never completed by the Nazis. The centre houses a permanent exhibit called «Fascination and Violence» over 1,300 square metres which explores the roots, relationships and consequences of the reign of violence.

    Childhood memories
    Nuremberg is considered to be the city of toys. The world-famous toy museum is testimony to this long tradition that stretches back to the Middle Ages. Visitors can stroll through more than 1400 square meters of exhibition space in this paradise for children filled with toys from past centuries, as well as post-war exhibits.

LOCAL TIP

Nuremberg is surely not THE place to shop in Europe, but Crämer & Co. can hold its own against the really big names: 30,000 jeans from more than 50 different brands like Drykorn, LEE, 7 For All Mankind, Pepe and Nudie Jeans. You’ll also find bags, accessories, shirts and shoes there. Customer service there is wonderful, which is great given that it's easy to be overwhelmed by such an enormous selection. The staff there knows just what they’re doing, though, and they have a real eye for the perfect jeans. There are stores specifically for women at Brunnengasse 3-9 and Breitengasse 8. The men’s store is at Breitengasse 18.

The lovely Café Wohlleben is located near the Stadtpark municipal gardens. The name says it all. Alexander and Friedel offer really delicious coffee and some remarkable treats from their own confectionary like lemon cheese cake, brownies with pear, a Bounty tart, blueberry-elderberry cake, and the list goes on and on. If you’re up to it, you could try something different every single day. It’s a wonderful spot in Nuremberg.

To all kebab fans! The Atlantik Döner is the best kebab bar in town. It was even voted the best kebab bar in Germany. Tastes really damned good, and the bread is homemade.

I highly recommend the zoo in Nuremberg. The grounds are expansive and a joy to see. The zoo is home to a large number of animals that have a lot of space to move about in. That makes it one of the most beautiful zoos in Germany.
