Nuremberg is a beautiful and atmospheric city in Bavaria with a nearly thousand-year history. Nuremberg is considered the embodiment of the spirit of all of Germany, so it is no wonder that tourists from all over the world come here all year round. Carefully preserving its historical heritage, the city develops more and more every year, harmoniously combining medieval monuments with modern architecture.

The medieval charm of the city is felt in the Imperial Castle. It was built on the red sandstone castle rock. In fact, the city's history began here. The castle was the seat of the Imperial Diet. Emperors were elected here from the middle of the 14th century, and from 1424 to the end of the 18th century, the treasures of the imperial crown were also kept here. The castle is surrounded by a five-kilometer wall with 80 towers, the oldest of which is the Pentagonal Tower, built in the 11th century. The castle observation deck offers its visitors an impressive view of central Nuremberg.

Traditionally, one of the most important places in the city is the Market Square, at the center of which stands a fountain adorned with a Gothic pyramid and 40 figures. It is believed that good luck will follow the person who twirls the gilded ring on the fountain's edge. The eastern part of the square houses the Church of Our Lady, which is famous for its altar dating back to the 15th century. There are also St. Lawrence's and St. Sebald's churches with numerous priceless works of art not far from the Market Square.

Nuremberg has many interesting museums, including the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, the Craft Museum, the Transport Museum, and the Toy Museum. The Germanisches Nationalmuseum is one of the most visited museums in the city. It houses over a million exhibits dedicated to the history of art and culture in German-speaking countries. The oldest exhibits are over 30,000 years old. The museum presents paintings, sculptures, clothes, scientific instruments, musical instruments, and toys. The section with musical instruments houses the largest collection of pianos in the world.

A trip to Nuremberg will be an unforgettable adventure, even for the most experienced traveler. The city has everything for a pleasant stay, including attractions, hotels, and apartments for every taste, numerous cafes, bars, and restaurants, souvenir shops, parks, and much more.
