Kaiserburg Castle is situated on a small hill overlooing nuremberg's old town. Much of the castle and gardens can be wandered around free of charge. You only pay entry to go up a tower or into a museum. We only looked at the free parts. The castle consists of several towers, several buildings and stretches of wall. There is a viewing point which affords lovely views over nuremberg, lovely castle gardens. the toilets were located here and I was very glad to find them, too I can tell you. Near the gardens there is a viewing platform which overlooks Durer's House and square. You can enjoy a spectacular view and take a great photo from there.
Nürnberg Imperial castle was one of the most important imperial palaces of the Middle Ages. The original castle was first recorded in a document in 1105, although a second castle was built on the sandstone site in 1140 by King Conrad III. During the 13th century the castle came under the control of the city. Some of the imperial residential and state rooms in the main building have late medieval and Renaissance panelling, but after the rebuilding the rooms were furnished with items from the 16th and 17th centuries.

Nuremberg Castle (Nürnberger Burg) is located on a sandstone rock in the north of the historical city. With its architecture and history the castle is one of the most important fortresses in Europe.
It comprises three sections: the imperial castle ("Kaiserburg"), some buildings of the Burgraves of Nuremberg ("Burggrafenburg"), and the municipal buildings of the Imperial City at the eastern site ("Reichsstädtische Bauten").

The castle affords a panoramic view of the city, but go early before the crowds arrive. I suggest waking early, having breakfast, and taking a morning walk up to the castle.

The Castle of Nuremberg is its symbol. It is one of the most important imperial palaces of the Middle Ages. It is interesting to walk around but the view from the castle is what I liked the best. Read about its history here. It is definitely a must see .
Nestling on a hill at the North West edge of the old town is the Imperial Castle. It was built in three stages between the 11th and 15th centuries. The castle is open daily but you have to go on a guided tour to wander around its rooms. The oldest part of the castle is the five cornered tower. In one of the castle courtyards is the round Sinwell Tower which you can climb to obtain even better views of the city. Next to the Sinwell Tower is a half timbered building which contains the 47 metre deep Tiefer Brunnen (Deep Well).You can walk around its grounds and gardens for free and from this advantage point look over the city of Nuremburg.
