The Nuremberg Altstadt is a nice mix of the old and new. The pace is generally easy going and there is plenty to see. A word of caution: avoid the Altstadt on the opening day of the Christmas market (usually the Friday after Thanksgiving, for US visitors) and on the weekends. Otherwise, the Altstadt is a good place to visit and stroll any time of the year.

Hi everyone,

First time i was in Nurnberg it was for a 6 month work delegation . The only thing that comes into my mind when i think of it is Superb!!!!!

The buildings, atmosphere warmth that you can feel all around you is incredible.

Excelent places to drink a coffee on the river, ice cream is a must and the castle with the view over the city.....no words!

You can visit in sommer or in winter. Weinachtsmarkt is the best i've seen so far. Not the biggest, but the one with christmasy feeling!(frankfurt/munchen are the ones in comparison).

Maybe this city reminds me too much of my home
town(Timisoara) maybe not, but you definetely should pay it a visit. It is an extraordinary piece of art!

All the best, T

P.S I am now the 5th time here when Iam writing the review ;)

We stopped here on the way to another destination and are glad that we took the time. I had read from other reviews most of the city has been rebuilt after the war, but it was done beautifully and retains its old-world charm. It was a Sunday, so like all of Germany the stores were closed only restaurants open. We still enjoyed strolling the streets and stopping for cake and ice cream.

This ancient walled city almost looks as if it was built for tourism! Or should I say - rebuilt, for it suffered mightily during the war. Check out the old tunnels, dating back several centuries or, simply enjoy a stroll be the river. There are some fine buildings and often a food market in the main market place. You will also see street theatre here on occasion.

There are many great restaurants - providing you like Frankonia food and, if you get chance, be sure to eat at the old hospital on Spitalgasse. The old rathouse (townhall) restaurant is also worth a visit.

Don't be frightened to use the U-Bahn (underground) - it's very cheap, fast, frequent and reliable and runs until late in the evening.

One of the best old towns in Europe. Went during Easter holiday, there was a open market at the main square at the time serving all sorts of things (grilled foods, sweets and local crafts, etc). The old town is very picturesque with a classic castle, church, beautiful bridges and buildings. Several restaurants including a very good Indian and Turkish restaurant at the entrance. The old town is very easy to reach just across from the train station. Worth at least a 3-4 hours.
