Nuremberg
Vibrant medieval town

Nuremberg Weissgerbergasse, copyright Congress- und Tourismus-Zentrale Nrnberg
Visitors to Germany's Nuremberg, a lively city with a medieval feel, will find evidence of its 950-year history at every turn. These legacies of the past also reveal much about the past and present of the German people. Here in Nuremberg, monuments to the city's inventiveness and its cultural self-confidence over many centuries stand in the midst of the hustle and bustle of a modern, dynamic urban centre.

At the Germanic National Museum, the largest museum for German art and culture, you'll find practically every significant achievement within the German-speaking territories represented, including the first globe, the "Nuremberg Egg" pocket watch and works by Albrecht Dürer. The documentation centre at the Reichsparteitagsgelände (Nazi Party Rally Grounds) takes an in-depth look at the history of the Third Reich.
