You could spend hours wandering the streets of the old town, especially if you're into photography. The area is very picturesque and February is a great month to visit if you're after peace and quiet. Lots of bakeries and food stalls dot the streets of old town Nuremberg. There are also several hand crafted items to browse and buy. The... More

the noon time display of the church bells and characters is interesting in a quiet way! nothing too spectacular but well worth the 5 minutes of watching. if you get there early, macdonalds sells cheap and tasty coffee and is opposite the church.

Nuremberg's old town (Altstadt) is one of Bavaria's jewels in the Crown. Considering the city was destroyed by WW2 bombing raids, it's amazing how well it's been reconstructed using the original architectural designs and in many cases the original stones. One of the best parts of it is that it's nearly all pedestrian precinct - which is so user friendly... More

Nuremberg is one of the coolest cities in Bavaria. It is significant city if you want city with mix between modern and history.

The Altstadt or Old Town is a very interesting part of Nuremberg.Easily accessible from the main train station there is planty to see and do within the old town. Lots of shops , rstaurants , cafes and hotels along with historically significant attractions. There is a river that runs through the middle of town and cobbled streets everywhere.

Nuremberg has always been significant throughout German history. More or less annihilated by Allied bombing raids during WWII the city center (Mitte) has been rebuilt with a respect for history and original architecture seldom seen. The building all look as originally intended and the feel of Altstadt (Old Town) is remarkable. Where new buildings are added it is done with... More

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
