Nuremberg Gingerbread, copyright AG Nürnberger Lebkuchen
Strolling, shopping and exploring are one and the same thing in Nuremberg, and can be done within a very compact area. Places of historical interest, boutiques, department stores befitting a major international city and cultural centres are all clustered closely together.
City centre
The shopping area in the city centre extends between Hallplatz and Unschlittplatz, Weisser Turm and Bischof-Meiser-Strasse, and around the Church of St. James (Jakobskirche). The area is well-served by underground stations.
The shopping centre in the Südstadt district stretches from Kopernikusplatz to Aufsessplatz.
Nuremberg gingerbread
Nuremberg gingerbread (lebkuchen) is legendary. The old imperial city enjoyed a favourable location at the point where the ancient trading and spice routes intersected, and gingerbread can be traced back to the Franconian monks who used to bake pfefferkuchen (pepper cake) and honigkuchen (honey cake), forerunners to gingerbread, in the Middle Ages. Today it is available in many variations, and is the perfect souvenir of Nuremberg.
