In part 1, we learned about the history of Nuremberg, its strategic and prestigious position in Europe throughout the centuries, its turbulent past and how they recovered after World War II.
Today, this dynamic German metropolis is pressing forward and has a bright and promising future ahead.
Very easy to reach via its efficient public transportation network, Nuernberg simply has so much to offer to both locals and visitors from around the world.
It is a great option for a weekend getaway or as in my case, the perfect place to recover from a transatlantic flight and have fun exploring the city before embarking on a river cruise on the Danube or the Main as the city is directly connected to these great rivers via the Main Danube Canal.
From shopping to gastronomy, modern to historic museums, castles, impressive churches to open air markets, fine dining to traditional restaurants, Nürnberg will leave you wanting for more, much more!
Words cannot express what a lovely, yet completely unexpected surprise this was and I will be honest and tell you that 36 hours were simply not enough. A return visit is definitely in my future plans, perhaps in time for the most popular event of the year, Christkindlesmarkt, which is one of the most famous Christmas markets in Germany, Europe and the world!
As I promised, here is Discovering Nuremberg, Germany Part 2
and this time I have included even more captures, 50 to be exact! The more the merrier right? 🙂
I hope you will enjoy viewing and remember to include it to your bucket list.
The fun does not end here, absolutely not. In the next installment I will show you a traditional Franconian dish and of course ice-cold drinks to have while in town. You sure don’t want to miss it, so please come back and check.
Bis nächsten mal, until next time.
Many happy travels!
