Introduction to Nuremberg
Nuremberg is calm, creative and with a touch of the Middle Ages city. The parts of the old town that date back to the Middle Ages alone are well worth seeing. Then there is also the sensual perception of the specialties of the palate. The evenings of the short trip should be reserved for a visit to the theatre, the opera, or the symphony orchestra.
There are also many cool shops, cafes and of course the Nuremberg bratwurst, which simply tastes best with a view of the Kaiserburg. Truly, a great place to spend a vacation.

The only requirements: You must prove with a hotel booking that you are a visitor in the city.
Tip 3: Explore Nuremberg by bike
The quickest way to get from A to B in Nuremberg is to take the subway, but logically you won’t see anything of the city.
