Nuremberg is the largest city in Franconia. More than half a million people live here in lively urbanity - gastronomy, trade, living, culture, sports and work are mixed in the city districts. In addition, there are also several oases of well-being, quiet neighborhoods and many sights.
The Castle of Nürnberg – Kaiserburg - The castle is located in the heart of the city and is the landmark of Nuremberg. In addition to visiting the exhibition rooms, you should also take the time to enjoy the view from the viewing platform over the city of Nuremberg.
The beautiful fountain - Schöner Brunnen - As one of the sights of the city of Nuremberg, the “Schöner Brunnen” belongs to the Historic Mile of Nuremberg. Built in 1396, it stands on the edge of the main market next to the Nuremberg City Hall. The Schöner Brunnen is about 19 meters high and has the shape of a pinnacle decorated Gothic church spire. A legend says that whoever turns three times on the golden ring of the well his wishes will be fulfilled. So don’t miss the opportunity to make your wishes come true. The beautiful fountain on the main market is not only particularly beautiful to look at, but also provides welcome refreshment. And it has a secret: whoever finds the Golden Ring and turns it, gets to make a wish.
Absolutely worth seeing is the medieval old town including the mighty imperial castle. Nuremberg Castle is the landmark of the city of Nuremberg. The earliest traces of construction date back to the time around 1000. After the severe damage caused by the air raids on Nuremberg in World War II, the castle complex was rebuilt in historical forms. In its historical character as a fortified building and imperial residence, it is one of the most important fortifications in Europe in terms of history and architecture. It is one of the most important art and architectural monuments in the city and is part of the Nuremberg Historic Mile.
The “Schöne Brunnen” (Beautiful Fountain) is another sight that belongs to Nuremberg's Historic Mile. It was built in 1396 and stands on the edge of the main market next to the Nuremberg City Hall. The myth of the brass ring seamlessly forged into the iron grid also has a legend. It is said to have come in this way: One of the rings is considered a lucky charm, according to a legend, whoever turns it will be blessed with children. Mostly the brass ring is considered to be the lucky charm, but many Nurembergers believe that the iron ring is the "real ring" and thus the lucky charm.
Old Political Party Ground - Dokumentationszentrum Reichsparteitagsgelände - The National Socialists turned Nuremberg into the City of the Politic Party Rallies. Today, the unfinished Congress Hall on the former Reich Party Rally Grounds houses the Documentation Center. On 1,300 m2, the exhibition "Fascination and Violence" deals with the causes, contexts and consequences of National Socialist tyranny. The focus is on the history of the Reich Party Rallies, which were used as massive mass events by Nazi propaganda to stage the "Volksgemeinschaft".
