Visual Guide: Nuremberg, Germany

I have spent the past couple of days on a spontaneous trip to Nuremberg. Nuremberg is the second largest city in Bavaria (after Munich) and it is distinguished by it's medieval architecture and the high involvement the city had during WWII with the Nazi Party Rally Grounds being located around 4km from the 'Aldstadt' (the city centre within the walls). Nuremberg is situated around 275 from Frankfurt and it is accessible by trains and buses.

 

I used the first day I had in Nuremberg to explore all of the highlights of the inner city. This included a visit to the Kaiserberg Castle, the Hauptmarkt, Albrecht Durer's house, a walk along the city wall, a visit to the Fasching parade, a walk along the 'Way of Human Rights', a visit to the exhibition at the Nazi Party Rally Grounds and admiring all the churches including Frauenkirche (a 14th century Gothic church) and also St Sebaldus, St Lawrence's and St Elizabeth's to name a few.
