Climate friendly travel
By train and without traffic jams comfortably to Nuremberg.
Sure, Nuremberg is a medieval idyll with half-timbered houses, city walls and an ancient castle above the city. But besides all its classic sights, a lively scene has developed here that is worth a second look.
Young and modern in Nuremberg? No problem: Even the facade of the State Museum of Art and Design is pure avant-garde made of glass and stone. Or the Gostenhof neighborhood with its young gastronomy and the many small shops that are everything but standard. Connoisseurs sometimes call Gostenhof with its chicly renovated old building facades GoHo - so the role models are definitely ambitious.
But of course the classics are also part of the program in Nuremberg: The Imperial Castle for example, the city's landmark, which functions just as well as a historical museum on the city's history as it does as a popular viewing platform over Nuremberg and the surrounding area. A little tip: There are regular guided tours of the castle's casemates - steep staircases lead down into the depths of the fortress, including a perspective of the embrasures.
The second must-do: a hearty Franconian meal. If you want to do it right, you'll find yourself in the Albrecht-Dürer-Stube for this purpose, a half-timbered house that advertises that it has been responsible for good food in Nuremberg for 450 years. You won't find more folkloric and regionally appropriate dining in Nuremberg. The motto of the house: Dürer lives.
By the way, you can find tips on how to travel comfortably and inexpensively on long-distance and local trains with Deutsche Bahn here.
