I was amazed to learn that over 70% of Nuremberg was fully or partially destroyed during bombing raids, including much of the castle. It stands as a monument to the dedication of those who pursued such a splendid programme of reconstruction to so wonderfully regain...More

Informative tour with well preserved exhibits. The double chapel and double eagles were very interesting. Plus a good view of the city from the walls.

Had a nice walk up to the castle. Lovely castle. We didn’t go in to the tower which has a small fee, we just walked around the grounds. A lovely view over the city. Would definitely recommend to visit.

It comes down to have you been to another Germany old town? If not, then it is a yes. If you have and enjoyed the other one, then I would go. If you do like seeing old buildings/walls or moats, then do not go. I like old... More
