Where to stay in Nuremberg

Exploring Nuremberg

Nuremberg is Bavaria’s second most-populated city, behind Munich, with a total of half a million residents. It rests along the beautiful Pegnitz River, in the southern region of Germany, and although it has experienced notoriety in the past, the Nuremberg of today is a bustling tourist destination that boasts an incredible old town. From the spectacular yet aged castle that towers over the centre of the city, to the large zoo that attracts many thousands each year, Nuremberg is a destination for everyone.

The old town and the city are divided by the Pegnitz River, but tourists needn’t worry, as both banks are filled with an abundance of hotels and lodgings. If tourists are staying in Nuremberg for the first time, then choosing a hotel in or around the Old Town is recommended. This way, most of the sightseeing can be enjoyed on foot. Nevertheless, the city does contain an inexpensive and convenient public transportation network, so visitors are never far away from Nuremberg’s main action.

Some of the main features of this remarkable castle include Luginsland Tower, the views from Freiung, the round tower of Sinwellturm and the Palas house, which is where the castle museum is found. There is a small fee to enter the castle, but the outer grounds are free.

- Nuremberg Zoo

Known as the Nuremberg Tiergarten, the city zoo is among Europe’s most amazing zoological parks. It is located at the eastern side of Nuremberg, flanking the largest forest in the region. Of the hundreds of species of fauna that call this zoo home, the most famous are the polar bears, as a new addition to the family was welcomed to the world just a few years ago. At the zoo is also the Dolphinarium, a beautiful dolphin display that has been in operation since 2011.
