About Nuremberg

The heart of Bavaria

Walking through the winding streets of Nuremberg in northern Bavaria, it’s hard not to feel like you’ve wandered into a fairy-tale. Although each house can appear almost comical in design, the combined charm offered by the iconic architecture of Bavaria is magical. The city’s old town is bursting with vivid colours, the sweet smells of independent bakers and the sounds of classic Bavarian music – making it ideal for lovers of European folklore.

Flight deals to Nuremberg


Nuremberg’s accommodation is split in two; between modern builds and traditional hotels. If the more modern hotels appeal to you, your best choice will be the Hotel Drei Raben, which is in the centre of town and boasts an elegant modern style. On the other hand, those seeking a more traditional stay should visit the classically Bavarian Hotel Marienbad.

Boasting the oldest and largest pedestrian zone in Europe, Nuremberg is no slouch when it comes to shopping. The entirety of Old Town is pedestrianised, making for a uniquely traditional shopping experience as you wander through the tight side-streets of the city. As you bob and weave you’ll find plenty of souvenirs, including artisan cheeses and meats as well as Bavarian keepsakes you’ll treasure for life. For a more modern shopping experience, visitors should visit Karolinenstraße – the city’s busiest shopping street.

Bavarian classics, like schnitzel and bratwurst, are to be expected as you make your way around the city, however, Nuremberg has become a hub for more modern cuisine in the Bavarian region. Don’t be surprised if you stumble across some sushi in your search for dinner as Thai, Chinese and Indian dishes often find their way onto the menus of otherwise traditional restaurants. Anyone with a sweet tooth should also try the lebkuchen biscuits which are a favourite of many and can be found on almost every street.

Nuremberg plays host to many of the traditional festivals and fetes of the Bavarian region as one of its few major cities. These events make a great centrepiece for any holiday, so here are a few of our top recommendations to help you pick when to visit the fairy-tale city:

Fränkisches Bierfest

Fränkisches Bierfest is a celebration of Franconian beer celebrated in the moat of Nuremberg Castle towards the end of May. If you’re a visiting adult be sure to get in on the action as there are plenty of free samples to be had and even more beer to be drunk on tap.

The Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt

The Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt is one of the oldest Christmas markets in the world and has everything a great Christmas market should have – including plenty of delicious food, drinking halls and festive decorations. This is one event that’s sure to help you is you’re struggling to get into the Christmas spirit.
