A place to visit if you are interested in Bavarian architecture. This place is full with churches and shops. Also is very good during the winter because it has some good christmas/winter scenery.

The heart of Nuremberg is the city. The Altstadt, or Old Town, is the historic part of the city, surrounded by a wall. The river Pegnitz flows through the middle and has a couple of interesting bridges one needs to use to cross from the upper to lower parts of the Altsadt. Lots to look at, many shops and restaurants... More

Altstadt is located just in front of Hauptbahnof and resembles the medieval architecture of the Nuremberg city. It has around three churches and the Altstadt center is famous for its 'Beautiful fountain'. You can walk till the imperial castle from which one can have a excellent view of the Nuremberg town. I missed the medieval dungeons as they are closed... More

We were on a river cruise, and wound up in Nuremberg on Christmas Day. We wound up in Altstadt late in the afternoon.....shops were guiet, surprising number of people out and about, and most of the coffee shops were open. We had a great time.....two churches, pretty scenes along the river, nice architecture, people watching and a nice hot cup... More

Our tour guide gave us a "rule of thumb" for measuring the buildings in German cities. He said "if it looks old, it most probably is old". The Altstadt is the perfect example of an old inner city.

There is loads to discover, restaurants to eat in and shops to buy lovely things at and of course the architecture to admire! Highlights are the craftsmen court, the Albrecht Durer house and the castle. But honestly? Just grab you camera and walk through town. You can't go wrong with that!

Despite the almost complete destruction during the Second World War, the Altstadt shines of its fairy athmosphere. It's never enough to go around its streets.

Altstadt is really amazing for stroling. OK, Old castle is impressive looking from the Altstadt but walking these small streets and just enjoying the small shops along the way - this is an amazing experience.
