10 things to do in Nuremberg, Germany travel guide video transcription:
We start our day taking the U-bahn to the city center and getting off at Lorenzkirche. This put us on the south bank of the river Pegnitz, where we took the opportunity to visit some markets before visiting the church of St Lorenz.
This is a beautiful Gothic church complete with pointed domes, stained glass windows, and sculptures.
From there we walk through one of the many bridges of the city and continue towards Fuente Hermosa (yes, that's the name), looking for some good luck.
One of the most famous attractions of Nuremberg is the Imperial Castle located at the northwest end of the Old Town. The castle is a testament to the power of the Holy Roman Empire during the Middle Ages.
And we could not go to Nuremberg and not try the famous Nuremberger sausage! We went to Bratwursthäusle, right in the heart of the old town by St Sebaldus Church.
Later that afternoon we went to the deep underground of Nuremberg on a tour of the historic beer cellars. Nuremberg has been a beer town for centuries.
While in the city, we also took a walk through Weißgerbergasse, which may just be one of the most beautiful streets in Nuremberg. This curved cobbled street is full of half-timbered houses.
The former house of Albrecht Dürer is now a museum dedicated to his life and work. He was a German Renaissance artist through many means, but he is best known for revolutionizing printmaking and elevating it as an art form. At certain times of the day, they offer a guided tour with an actress who plays the role of Agnes Dürer, the artist's wife.
The bridge we were looking for is the Heilig-Geist-Spital, or the Hospital of the Holy Spirit. It is not a bridge in the usual sense of the word, rather a medieval building that sits across part of the River Pegnitz.
On a more serious note, we could not leave Nuremberg without also visiting the Dokuzentrum, also known as the Nazi Rallying Grounds Documentation Center.
And that's a wrap for a guide from Nuremberg, Germany. If you've got any other great things to do in Nuremberg, then share it with other travelers in the comments below.
