    Jugend-Hotel Nurnberg


    A bit far off the beaten path lies this charming hostel with decent sized rooms, beds, and tiny bathrooms. They have over 120 rooms. Set in the woods by the airport, its like an old-fashioned adventurers hostel with nice natural scenic beauty around the grounds. The hostel is pretty spacious with lots of land for outdoor activities such as frisbee, barbeques, and sunbathing. Inside is a big lobby with a tv-lounge, internet room, and a dining hall. If you don't have your own car, public transportation or cabs are a must in order to get into town due to the remote location. Reception desk hours are sporadic but the clerk is not too hard to find. Rating: 4.25 stars out of 5.

    The best hostel in Germany


    The hostel in Nürnberg is really in a wonderful location, and old house just on the Kaiserburg, the fortress of the city. As you can see on the picture the place is really great.
    The hostel is very big, with any facilities you could need in a hostel. Anyway, it's good to book in advance, since really a lot of people want to sleep there, and it's not easy to find a free room, expecially in summer period.
    The prices are quite high for a hostel, expecially compared to other DJH hosteld in Germany, but it's surely worth the expense.

    Directions: Just beside the Burg entrance, up on the city walls

    Youth Hostel


    I didn't stay here, but when I saw it I kind of wished I had. The building is amazing, being the former stables of the castle, and it's location at the top of the hill in the beautiful medieval streets is fantastic. As I didn't stay I can't vouch for how good it is, but the people at the linked site below (one that I have found to be very good before) think that it is excellent. There is a good selection of quality backpacking accommodation in Nuremberg, but if you want to stay somewhere special this would take some beating even if you paid through the nose for one of the castle area hotels. The only downside is that it is only available to those under 26.

    Directions: Walk to the castle up Bergstrasse and it is at the top of the hill on the right of the entrance to the Kaiserburg.

Ist das Fussballspiel?

by Mazely


I intend to travel do Nurnberg on April and I found that the hotels are almost full from Tuesdays to Wednesdays. Could someone explain me why? During the other days, the prices of hotels are like half the price of the hotels Tuedays' nights! I wonder if it has something to do with football... Looks like Brasilia - and maybe other capitals -, where the politicians go to work on Tuesday and go back to their homestates on Thursday.
I also found probable that a fair could be running on April Tuesdays - Wednesdays. Does anyone know?

Thanks in advance,

There doesn't seem to be any important trade fair in April.

Don't have a real answer why the hotels seems to be already booked on these days.
You can try to find something with
probably you have more luck with them.

Oi Marcos, tudo bem?

O equipe alemão de hockey 'Nürnberg Ice Tigers" jogam os finais da sua liga no mês de abril: um jogo ocorre na terça-feira 7 e o outro na terça 19. Talvez isto explica a situação com os preços elevados durante estas semanas.
O esporte de 'hockey' e bastante popular am alemanha, casi (mas somente casi!) como o futebol na cidade maravilhosa...

The area between Nuremberg,...

by lobstop

The area between Nuremberg, Bayreuth and Bamberg is called the Frankische Schweiz (Frankonian Swiss). It is the area with the highest micro brewery density on earth. It is definitifely worth getting to that area and tasting the typical beer of that area.

Bratwurst Röslein

by bonio about Bratwurst Röslein

Nürnberg is famous for sausages, traditionally sold in 3's. This is a must for me - a sausage restaurant and not disappointed. Very tasty 9 sausages with sauerkraut and a couple of decent beers too. Vegetarian Mrs Bonio well catered for, not just sausages on offer.

The Transport Museum in Nürnberg

by alancollins

The Railway Museum in Nürnberg is the oldest in Germany and has the largest collection of trains and carriages. The museum is spread over 2 buildings and an outside yard. The museum has a replica of The Adler which was the first train to operate in Germany between Nürnberg and Fürth. The museum slowly brings you from The Adler right up to date with a mock up of the ICE. If you want to rest your feet there is a cinema which provides the story of the Adler. There is special coverage of the Nazi era and the two Germanys where it illustrates the differences between the two railway systems. From this exhibit I learnt that the double decker trains were introduced in the GDR because so many people used the trains it was a way of getting more passengers into a carriage. Because all the exhibits are only in German an audio guide is a must. For anyone with children the museum will keep them interested. The second hall only has must not touch rolling stock. The outside area does have a signal box overlooking the in use railway tracks which is hands on. The museum is closed on Monday and I would recommend checking their website for up to date information on ticket prices.

Visiting the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds

by alancollins

If you intend to visit the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds in Nuremburg and want to visit most of the sites you should be aware that it covers an area of 11 square kilometres and takes a couple of days to wander around. If you require a plan of the area the first place to visit is the Documentation Centre which is housed in the Congress Hall, where you can pick up leaflets and obtain information from the staff. The centre itself is a good place to start as it covers the history and the various places around the area. It is a large exhibition and easily takes 3 to 4 hours to cover. If you are pressed for time the Zeppelin Field with its reviewing grandstand is a must and this can be reached by car or foot. If you decide to visit the Zeppelin Field the leaflet describes a circular route which takes approximately 90 minutes on foot and covers most of the main sites.
