Discover the charm of Nuremberg

On the banks of the Pegnitz River in Germany , you will find one of the most important cities in Bavaria , Nuremberg or Nürnberg in German. If you walk the streets of this ancient city you will feel as if you have moved to what was the most flourishing time of the city, the Middle Ages.

Its imperial and medieval castle , the Kaiserburg, stands out from the rest of the monuments of the old city. Which is also surrounded by approximately five kilometers of walls with about eighty towers and turrets. The bourgeois houses and old Gothic churches that you will find in Nürmberg reflect and demonstrate what the city was like back in the Middle Ages. Even so, not everything in Nuremberg is past, since this municipality of more than half a million inhabitants is today the second most important economic center in all of Bavaria.

Thousands of tourists visit the city every year, being one of the favorite places to see the house of Alberto Duero (one of the most famous artists of the Renaissance). This house was built in 1420 and how could it be otherwise, its architectural style is the same as that of the typical bourgeois houses of the city. It was built with timber frames and stone quarrying. Another of the most visited sites is the National Museum of the German Republic , where you can discover the history, culture and art of the city from its prehistoric times to the present day.

In addition to this, every year a large number of events take place in Nuremberg, the most important of which arguably is the international music and poetry festival , the Bardentreffen. Also important are the old town festival , Altstadtfest, which is the largest in all of Germany, or the famous Christmas market , the Christkindlesmarkt (the one in the image).
