Valznerweiherstrasse 200, (Formerly Holiday Inn), Nuremberg, Bavaria, 90480, Germany
We have stayed at the Hilton Nürnberg two times, both times were good experiences and we would recommend this hotel to those looking to stay outside the downtown area. The Hilton is located within walking distance to the stadium but is also close to the train lines; however, both times we stayed there, we used the bus to get to the downtown, which conveniently has a stop right in front of the Hilton and ends at the train station.
Our rooms have been quite nice, exactly what we expect from the Hilton chain – spacious and clean with exceptional service - with free wi-fi and buffet breakfast. We have been fortunate to get room rates around €75 which includes breakfast for both Hubby and I. The large parking lot in front of the Hilton is free parking as well. You can purchase two-day bus tickets from the hotel front desk or direct from the bus driver.
The Hilton is attached to a conference center and a football field, so I can imagine that the hotel can get rather busy at times and supply and demand will be reflected in their room rates. We simply don’t choose to stay at times when the hotel prices are more than we care to pay – we typically search the Hilton website, checking the “flexible dates” box on the reservation dates. This gives us an idea of when the cheaper times to stay are available. The rooms are the same so why overpay if we are not going for a specific event and can choose the times we travel.
Would I stay at the Hilton Nürnberg again? Yes, definitely. And I recommend it to others that are interested in staying in the city.

REM in Nurnberg
Can anyone recommend a hotel perhaps within walking distance to the REM show in Nurnberg 4-6-05?
Re: REM in Nurnberg
Hm...they seem to play in the Rock im Park thing which says tickets also give you admission to the nearby camp site...Anyway it is in the Zeppelin field outside the city centre and there I only know these:
Novotel Nuremberg Messezentrum
Another one is Congress Hotel Mercure but that's on the other side of the whole park and artificial lake compared to the Zeppelin field, so then you have quite a walk to the field.
It is also easy to reach the Zeppelin field by tram from the Central station smack bang in the middle of the centre with all its hotels.
Re: REM in Nurnberg
Nuremberg has an excellent public transport system. And for such events the entrance tickets typically cover public transport in Nuremberg to/from the event.
Thus - there is no real need to stay close to the event itself.
Travel Tips for Nürnberg
The Nuremberg bratwurst is skinnier and longer than the regular bratwursts you get in Germany. It's also very flavorful and delicious with mustard (Senf). It is served between a round bun at the street stands--makes for a great lunch.
The neoclassical Church of St Elisabeth, built in 1806, is a stranger in Nürnberg's old town which was mostly characterized by medieval and renaissance architecture. It substituted a much older chapel which belonged to the Teutonic Order. After the reformation St Elisabeth was the only church in the city that remainded Roman-Catholic. The gothic chapel was alrteady too small for the community at the end of the 17th century but it took more than 100 years to achieve permission to build a new one.
The ground plan consists of three parts: the square nave, the vestibule with the organ in the west and the choir in the east. However, the hall appears circular, not square. A circle of columns carries the high dome. Statues of the twelve apostles are standing along the tambour walls underneath the dome.
The organ dates from 1903 and is originally preserved, even after World War II it needed no more than a cleaning. Thus it is the oldest preserved organ in the city.
Location: Jakobsplatz, behind the White Tower, U-Bahn stop: "Weißer Turm"
Drinks and coffee and cake and snacks 2
I put these two reviews together because, quite frankly, you could sit at an outside table in either Browns or the Black Bean...they are directly opposite each other on Ludwigsplatz and their outside tables are intermingled.
But I had my first Nurnburg drink (a looong Weissbier and very, very welcome!) at Browns. And also had several coffees and apfelschorlen there on a very hot evening, just to rehydrate myself after a long day's wandering.
They serve all types of drinks, of course, and cakes and snacks and ice-creams.
Both cafes were always crowded, so I assume that local people (there were plenty using them) consider them to be of a good standard and reasonable price.
I certainly did.
And having a fountain nearby was nice too! :-)
Nuernberg has a lot of well-preserved medieval and renaissance buildings. But somehow, this is one of my favourites. The Nassauer Haus is a tower-shaped building used in medieval times for administrative purposes. The lower part of the building is frorm the 13th century, the top storeys were added in 1423. It is owned now by a family who financed the rebuilding of the damaged building after WWII.
“Nassauer” is an expression for pennypincher, mostly used in the southern part of Germany. However, I don’t know if it has anything to do with this house. Or what the relation to the house of Nassau, now part of the royal dutch family (Oranje-Nassau), is. And what about the prejudice that the dutch are pennypinchers ???
Germanisches Museum - history and culture
The museum has a section about the German history and culture from the origins to the modern times. Among the exhibited things there are pieces of furniture (look at the pharmacy in the first pic), ancient clocks, armours, jewels and much more. However, I must admit that this section was not my favourite one. What I was eager to see were the German paintings. Follow me and I'll introduce you to some great painters!
