Nuremberg is a popular destination in the Bavaria State, Germany, known for the Nuremberg Castle, an imposing castle complex from the 11th-century, considered one of the most formidable medieval fortifications in Europe.

Also popular is the Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds museum, one of the most important museums in Germany dedicated to the country’s darkest period.

Another important museum in Nuremberg is the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, which houses numerous items related to the artistic history and culture of the region. And the Neues Museum Nürnberg is a museum of modern and contemporary art.

The city has a charming old town centered on the Hauptmarkt square, which houses the Schöner Brunnen fountain and the famous Frauenkirche church. St. Lorenz and St. Sebald are two other important historic churches in the old town. And for beautiful views of the old town, the Bürgermeistergarten is worth visiting.

For travelers who have more time in the city, the Albrecht Dürer’s House museum, the Toy Museum (Spielzeugmuseum), the Nuremberg Transport Museum, and the Naturhistorisches Museum are also popular to visit.
