Altstadt, Nuremberg

4.8
In the heart of Nuremburg, Altstadt represents the city's rich history and its recent resilience. As you explore the old town's tree-lined streets, you can admire the imposing, medieval stone fortress and timbered houses. Much of Nuremburg was destroyed in World War II bombing. You may find yourself heartened by the last 70-plus years of recovery and rebuilding efforts. Consider a stop at the Church of St. Sebald. The town's saint is buried within. The riverfront promenade makes for a pleasant walk and place to grab a bite to eat.

  • This is a nice surprise, I who did not expect much from this big city, Nuremberg hides in its bosom a small Pearl that its historical center. The places are absolutely charming, with a ray of sunshine it is a real joy to walk in these small alleys lined with charm and perfectly preserved. Sublime buildings, waterways, bridges, paved alley, boutiques, squares, a real little marvel! Don't forget the fortifications, a place that is definitely worth a visit!

  • After a few days in Nuremberg, I am only sorry for the many American tour groups who are chased through the Old City by their leaders in quick passage, between Our Lady's Church, the city wall and the imperial castle. You can also do it differently: Arrive by train, book a hotel between the train station and the marketplace and then run, sit and watch (Nuremberg has a pleasing number of free benches for it). Two destinations a day are enough if you take your time and if you want to see more than the old town, there is a day ticket for bus and tram (€ 8.30) and then you can rattle off the ninety districts. Care: Nuremberg is about half the size of Munich and none (!) Small town, but a bigger big city. For the old town alone, one week is not too much.

  • This place is awesome. Saturdays no appointment needed but there's usually a wait.
  • Went here today for a haircut. Super friendly place! And one of the best cuts I have ever had. The cut was very precise. Well worth the money. Highly recommended. Looking forward to my next visit. (Walk-ins on Saturdays otherwise you’ll need an appointment).
