The old town here is magical, a great walk around and especially interesting at the Christmas Season Markets which we visited on 12.6.2016. 5/5 the Doctor hit me with a helpful vote.

Starting with the massive walls built in the 15th and 16th centuries surrounding the Old City to entering through one of its four spectacular gates, the Altstadt is home to most of the top midieval attractions that the city has to offer. It is very walkable and if you follow a logical route it is possible to see most of... More

While being bombed heavily during the Second World War, some old buildings still survive and they blend quite well with the new ones. This is also why the Christmas market here is so popular.

Always loved the old city great to see it again. Cobblestone streets mean wear your walking shoes! Quaint German style restaurants along side others with international cuisine. Outdoor cafes, lovely shops and historic sites. This is a real thriving old city center with apartments, and businesses of all sorts not just for tourists. This is the area surrounded by the...

The most beautiful part of the town,also the most crowded as long as is full of tourists.Here you can find wonderful old buildings like Nassauerhaus,Durrer house,Rathaus,cobbled streets,an old castle-Kaiserburg,old majestic churches like Lorenzkirche,Frauenkirche or St Sebaldus.Also,in the winter here takes place the Christmas Market.The main area to visit if you're a tourist.

Nuremberg has a special feel to it that you can only experience by walking. It may be the long history or it may be the people, but it is magical. I was a bit disappointed in the christmas Market as the quality of products sold has decreased since I was last here. perhaps this is just because it has become... More

Today's visit was for the Xmas market. Gorgeous, festive, so many stalls, sweets, Glühwein, Crêpes and fun shopping. Xmas music, buskers of all sorts, and a Starbucks fix for the drive back. A bit crowded, but still doable. If you want to get the Xmas spirit, I recommend!

Old city charm is a good way to summarise Altstadt. As you walk the cobble stone streets of this amazing place, you are transported back in time. Alstadt is overflowing with history and amazing architecture. Beautiful churches and chaples stand tall above the city. There's an abundance of shops and places to eat. Great place to try local food. It's... More
