Must do inNurembergh

by pulgaron

If you only had one day in Nurembergh what would be the must do things?

Re: Must do inNurembergh

by nicolaitan

nuremberg's old city is compact with the castle overlooking, the albrecht durer house and museum, several other good museums, and the picturesque pegnitz river. but the highlight of our trip was the documentation center and parade grounds reached by tram from the train station with an incisive history of the national socialist movement with special reference to the importance of nuremberg to the party and its leaders. if you have interest in this period of history, very well worth the effort to visit. the center is described in detail on the things to do section of my nuremberg page right in the beginning.

Re: Must do inNurembergh

Excellent advice. The Nazi archives are only a short tram journey from the main railway station, and must be one of the best museums in Europe and provides a splendidly balanced overview of Nuernerg's dark 20th century history. After that, you'll need something jollier, and fortunately Nuernberg is a delightful city with a compact and historic centre. Everything that has been recommended above is worth doing, but if you have an interest in toys (particularly tin toys), have children or are looking for a wet weather option, the Toy Museum is also great: Nuernberg has a long and proud centre for toy manufacture.
One day is very short for such a lovely place, but many of its great attractions can be seen on foot (rather than being reliant on opening times) so if you start early and finish late - I assume you're staying overnight? - you can fit a lot in. Nuernberg is very atmospheric at night, so wandering around after dark (it's very safe) lends a completely different and very special perspective on the place - especially if you finish your evening by retreating into one of the ancient cellar bars!
There is a great deal of good eating and drinking to be done in Nuernberg, and don't miss out on the local bratwurst - after extensive (and self sacrificing) field reserach, my nomination for the best sausage in the world! They are tiny, and the experience is further enhances by the illicit greedy frisson of ordering sausages by the half dozen!
We were in Nuernberg in early December for the Christkindlmarkt, so unfortunately my pages are work in progress, but if you're looking for more information I would direct you to antistar's page, which, as ever, is excellent.
Happy planning!
Regards
Cathy

Nurnberg is indeed a lovely city, and very walkable.

In one day I would definitely include the Lorenzkirche, Frauenkirche and Sebalduskirche, take an underground tour from the Hausbrauerei Altstadthof, visit the castle, perhaps visit the Albrecht Durer house....but definitely wander that part of the Altstadt anyway, wander the riverside..

Although so badly damaged during the war, Nurnberg's Altstadt retains a strong sense of what once was.

The city is well worth a whole day's exploration. My Nuernberg pages have info and tips about most of the places I've mentioned.

Travel Tips for Nürnberg

„Medieval Nuremberg”? Consequences of World War II

by Kathrin_E

(Ignore the headline please)

Until World War II Nürnberg was the best-preserved medieval city in Germany and considered the most “German” place of all, which was why the Nazis selected it as location of their party rallies. The romantic idea of the “Master Singers” like in Wagner’s opera and the memories of a proud past as one of the wealthiest free imperial cities in the Holy Roman Empire added theirs.

However, do not expect to see that much medieval architecture in Nürnberg’s old town. A model in Fembohaus museum shows what it looked like at the end of the war: 80% were smashed to ashes and rubble. Being an industrial centre and train hub made Nürnberg a target, being the symbolic centre of Nazi propaganda made it a top priority target for allied bombers.

The castle and city walls survived the air raids with not too severe damage. However, most of the centre had to be rebuilt from scratch. Post-war city planners in Nürnberg followed an extremely conservative approach which was not applauded by everyone. All streets and outlines of the houses were copied. Few important buildings have been reconstructed, though. The majority of the houses in the old town are post-war buildings that somehow pretend to be, but aren’t, like the pre-war appearance. A closer look reveals the uniform faceless 1950s facades with maybe the copy of a medieval Madonna or a renaissance oriel attached to it.

Handwerksburschernring

by frankcanfly

Find the Shoner Brunen on the NW corner of the Market Square, then find the Gold Colored Ring .

It's a movable and seamless ring that you can rotate for good luck.

Legend says that it was incorporated into the Wrought Iron by an apprentice without his master's knowledge. This "Apprentice's Ring" is one of Nuremburg's landmarks.

walk along the old townwalls

by globetrott

In the middle of my picture you may see the townwall dating back to the medieval times.
You may walk along these walls for quite a long time and you may even still see the big corridor, where the armed soldiers could run to and fro, when defending the town.
At many places there will be additional towers and only at a few places you have a possibility to get outside of the walls, where you mostly will get to recreational areas inside the moat.

You certainly need a whole day to entirely explore all of these walls.

Pillhofer

by bonio about Pillhofer

Just time for a quick lunch before heading for the airport, and a good choice.
Very tasty food, with an excellent aubergine schnitzel for Mrs Bonio and a friendly and comfortable atmosphere in this busy restaurant. Certainly visit again next time we're in town.

The Castle

by Alex_71

The ancient center of Nurnmberg is simply amazing..it's the old medeival town. In this magificent scenario you can find the old castle. To come here and walk at the inside of the castle is simply a must. You can't say to have visited Nurnberg if you haven't spend some hours into the castle. It really give you the feeling of the medieval period so...come and check this out:-)
