Nuremberg has a fun old town to walk through, it has a classic feel and a lot of to see. From the old town you can do almost everything the city has to offer except the documentation center. I would recommend stopping at both.

Nearly all the city centre is a pedestrian zone. Gothic buildings everywhere and and some great shopping. It can get busy but all the sights seemed very accessible for pushchair etc.

If you are visiting this city, you have to be in Altstadt. It has everything. The shops and full of stores and etc. But it is surrounded by rich history. Visit during winter time. It has one of best Christmas market.

One of the best city centers I've been to. Not enormously huge, but big enough to spend a whole day there. The river, the architecture the bridges the Cafes. All in perfect harmony!

The old town in Nuremberg has loads of shopping, eating, museums, the castle, etc. There are many old buildings but also newer ones and you can find basically everything there that you'd find outside of the old city walls. You can fairly easily walk from...More

This is a very historic and important old city, and well worth a visit and guided tour. You can certainly see the contrast between the old and new.

Most of the Altstadt (old town) is dominated by building from the medival architecural times. What is astonishing is, that most of Nuremberg was destroyed during WW2. Many building that look like they are hundreds of years old, were actually rebuild in the post war...More
