Restaurant advice and Name this Bar!?

by stuartd71

Four of us (late 30’s) are visiting Nuremberg mid December for the Christmas market. It’s about five years since we last visited. Can anyone offer advice on the following three restaurants on a Saturday night to celebrate a birthday? We want somewhere reasonably enjoyable, memorable, fun, friendly, modern/nice décor, decent food etc. (We’ve been to places like Bratwurst Roslein previously so don’t want a very ‘traditional’ restaurant.)

S’baggers - seems a bit quirky but is it worth the trip out to an industrial estate?
Padelle D’italia - seems to have good reviews but website pictures look a bit dull inside!
Etage - Thai restaurant – can’t find anything about the building and atmosphere?

Also, can anyone identify the bar/club that we went to last time we were there? I can’t seem to find anything on Google or Google Maps that identifies it! Somewhere near the castle and Albrecht Durer Haus there’s quite a long wide (cobbled?) street that runs downhill. It’s got various bars (several Irish bars I think?) and others on either side (big stone buildings). At the bottom on the left there’s a bar/club that is on the corner. It was quite cramped inside, a bit studenty, lots of wood panelling with a central bar in a square shape that you could access from pretty much all sides. It was split into almost little rooms, with a dance floor at the back.

Any ideas?!

You might try the Stockholm bar/restaurant (www.stockholms.de), cocktails were good, however food was just OK, the interior is nice. There is the Zeit & Raum (www.zeiti.net) bar and restautrant where brunch is supposed to be very good, interior is dark but aesthetic with French and Marocoo flair. Tapasitos is pretty good for Spanish tapas with a huge range of cocktails (www.tapasitos.de). For good traditional German cuisine I can recommend the Albrecht Dürer Stube that serves the best "Schäuferle" as my boyfriend says - and he tested some... (www.albrecht-duerer-stube.de). But it is not a party location as the others.
Unfortunately, I cannot give any hint to you fave destination...
Have a great stay, Chris.

Christmas market in Nuremberg

by Travelchili

Nuremberg's Christkindlesmarkt (Christ Child Market) is one of the oldest and most famous Christmas markets. The first official record of this market dates back to 1628. Already in 1737 nearly all Nuremberg's craftsmen were represented in this market. At the end of the 20th century, there were 190 stalls in Nuremberg's Christ Child Market.

What can you buy and eat in a Christmas market?

* One thrid of the stalls offer food specialities from Nuremberg such as Rostbratwuerste (fried sausages), Lebkuchen (spicy gingerbread), Gluehwein (mulled wine) and Fruechtebrot (rich fruit loaf).
* The larger part of the stalls offer toys, decorations, candles, arts and crafts.

Crailsheim

by Nemorino

Crailsheim is a town of about 32,000 people on the railroad line between Stuttgart and Nürnberg. The first mention of Crailsheim in any document was in the year 1136.

In 1945 the center of Crailsheim was almost completely destroyed by air raids and ground battles at the end of the Second World War. From 1952 to 1993 soldiers of the US Army were stationed here, in McKee Barracks.

I only spent one afternoon in Crailsheim, to do a presentation at the Adult Education Center. (It went fine, thanks. Nice group of teachers).

Upscale Italian Dining

by nicolaitan about Da Claudio

This sophisticated restaurant is recommended by everyone from hotels to Conde Nast Traveller magazine to Yahoo. The exterior, featuring large etched glass picture windows allows visualization of the interior - well lit, decorated in pale colors, with a large and impressive modern bar, Da Claudio seems very appealing and draws a well-dressed and well-heeled clientele. The neatly cloth covered tables are set in advance. One need dress up a little for the occasion.
The menu offers a mix of northern and southern specialties, not large but with enough for everyone to find one good choice. The servers are smooth and coordinated and made us feel welcome as well.
The website suggests an open display for a the antipasto and specials reflecting daily purchases. Neither of these were apparent to us, however, as no specials were offered and only the desserts were on display. Prices were high - with beer, not wine, we spent about $80 US here.

The food offerings were surprisingly bland = the best word that comes to mind is dull. We hoped for a bit more sophistication in preparation. There was enough to eat but just not enough to excite especially at these prices. Ambience is not everything. Linguine in a marinara sauce with seafood contained an abundance of marine life, most of it fresh, and was the only dish we sampled with any verve at all. For the squeamish, do note that the shrimps do come with heads attached here.

Nazi Documentation Center - II

by nicolaitan

The permanent exhibition is titled "Fascination and Terror" and is absolutely superior in presentation and content. It details, with special attention to the ideologic and practical importance of Nuremberg, the causes and ultimate results of the Nazi terrorist regime. There are no apologies here - an almost clinical dissection of tyranny and megalomania. Ostensibly organized into multiple segments, the presentation follows the early years of the Nazi movement through ultimate power, defeat, and the Nuremberg Trials through a largely pictorial display. There are supplements of short movie segments including taped interviews, and, interestingly, anti-Nazi cartoons and editorials prior to the 1933-4 murderous subjugation of political opposition. The title of the exhibit is remarkably illuminated by the images depicting the fanatical support Hitler received and the horrors that befell those in opposition. The available audioguide in multiple languages is superb.

The featured movie in the auditorium concerns the Nuremberg Trials, in which leading Nazi figures were tried for their war crimes and crimes against humanity. It intersperses filmed segments of the actual trial with interviews from those were were in attendance. We were mesmerized by this movie - sat riveted in our seats - watching the murdurous monsters on trial, testifying calmly and dispassionately about their lack of involvement in the genocides. Mind-blowing. I sit here now almost two months later typing this tip and recalling this movie.

The Nuremberg Documentation Center Museum is without question the most compelling of its class. A visit to Nuremberg without several hours here is a visit wasted.

Sidebar - the glass and steel walkway through the Congress Hall is frequently likened to a spear thrust through the heart of the Nazi movement and is often considered a word play on the name of Albert Speer, the chief Nazi architect. How ironic that this building is the only part of the rally grounds which he did not design.
