Once you’ve experienced the city’s enchanting historical ambience and seen the mighty Kaiserburg, you’ll never forget them. The beautiful Old Town, which is the epitome of medieval charm, is nestled at the foot of the castle. It’s home to historical buildings, spectacular churches, one of Germany’s largest pedestrian areas and the traditional Hauptmarkt. But Nuremberg is more than just a melting pot of cultural highlights. Bavaria’s second-largest city also offers a wealth of culinary delights, so why not stop off at one of the traditional Bratwursthäuser (sausage restaurants) and try a “3 im Weckla” (Nuremberg grilled sausages in a roll)?
