Fürth Things to Do

  • The Stadtpark

    This is a very pleasant park with lots of greenery and ponds. The park dates back to the mid nineteenth century when Johann Wilhelm Engelhardt, a local machine factory owner, had trees and plantss placed around the edges of the old cemetery.

  • The Paradise Fountain

    The Paradise Fountain is a great fountain depicting Adam, Eve, the snake, apples – some with bits out of them, unicorns and much more. It’s a fun fountain and you can walk along a wall into the middle of it. You’ll even find a half-eaten apple on the park bench next to it which is also part of the fountain. I really liked this site. The fountain...

    The Fürther Freiheit was once the site of the first German rail line which was constructed in 1835 and went from Fürth to Nuremberg. It was in operation until 1922. It had a stage and lots of stalls when we visited.

  • Centaur Statue

    Near the Haupt Bahnhof there is a centaur statue. It is a beautiful statue despite its rather sad subject matter. It shows a centaur being captured and tied up. It stood near the start of Germany’s first railway line and is supposed to represent man overcoming the forces of nature.The Centaur Fountain was designed by Rudolf Maison in 1890...

  • St Michael’s Church

    St Michael’s Church was closed when we visited and there was a festival stage and a bar outside. I liked the odd children’s artwork behind it with giant pencils and dragon statues. Strange, but cute.St Michael's Church is the oldest building in Fürth. Its origins date back to 1100.

  • Gruner Markt

    When Fürth was given market rights in the early Middle Ages, residents were able to hold markets in the area now known as Gruner Markt. The Gruner Markt has some strange and interesting statues. This was high up on my list of places to see, but the statues were largely hidden by music festival stages, speakers etc. One of the statues made rather...

  • Jewish Museum

    Near the town hall there is a Jewish Museum. We did not visit, but it is supposed to be interesting. The Jewish Museum was opened in 1999. The house was occupied by Jewish families until the late 19th century.

  • Fürth Town Hall

    There are several train stations in Fürth and one of them is right next to the town hall. I rather liked this building. There were food stalls behind it for the duration of the festival. There was also a stage for some of the festival’s musicians.Fürth Town Hall was built in 1840-50 by Georg Friedrich Christian Bürklein and Eduard Bürklein.

  • Near the Stadthalle Station

    Near the Stadthalle Station there were lots of beautiful buildings. The Jewish Cemetery is also in this area. It was closed when we went. I read somewhere that you can only visit by appointment.

    Hornschuchpromenade and Konigswarter Strasse are two streets near Jakobinenstrasse Station that have lots of Art Nouveau architecture. I loved the houses with their male, female and animal faces.

  • Old Town Near Town Hall.

    Near the rathaus around Gustav Strasse there are some lovely old buildings well worth seeing. There are also many restaurants, cafes and bars. This was a busy area during our stay as many of the music festival performances took place here. We ate in this area twice and had a particularly wonderful meal in an Afghani restaurant called the Kabuliya.

    Train Stop

    by frankcanfly Updated Nov 12, 2005

    At the train station in Furth, this is how I usually arrive...

    Since Furth is along one of the main train lines, you can frequently catch a train to nearly anywhere, but it'll be a slower train. You're better off taking the Ubahn to Nuremburg station, which is a major train network hub.

Fürth Local Customs

  • The clover leaf

    The clover leaf is the symbol of Fürth. We saw it on signs and notices all over the place. It kept reminding me of Ireland with its shamrock.

    more
  • Festival

    We enjoyed the music festival which was on in Fürth in July. There was lots of free interesting street entertainment. However, I was glad our hotel was a little bit out of town as I would not want to have been disturbed by it at night.

  • Football

    Germany won the 2014 World cup Final while we were there. There was a great atmosphere with people dressed up in the colours of the German flag. They also painted their faces. World Cup souvenirs were everywhere. Windows were decorated with flags. I had a good laugh at the celebration tractor bedecked in the German colours and laden down with...

  • Foerstermühle

    To be true, I cannot really tell you a lot about Foerstermühle yet. I stepped out of the subway, saw this impressing building and found it interesting enough to be worth an off-the-beaten-path-tip on this page. You have my promise that I am going to find out more about it.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Fürth Favorites

  • Varied Architecture

    Just walk around and look at the different buildings. From quite old to quite modern you can find many interesting views. Fürth is not very big, so you can cover quite a lot of it on foot.

    more
  • Town Hall

    The town hall is built of sandstone, and gives a sort of massive impression, almost a bit like a fortress.

    more
  • Fürth Railway Station

    The architecture of the railway station is in a way typical for Fürth. The fountain in front of it, with the centaur motif, reminds me of the centaur fountain in Altona, which originally also stood in front of the railway station.
