Nuremberg reminds you of a typical Bavarian village with its charming chalets and quaint canals. A city steeped in history, the formidable city walls and castle that have been restored after the Second World War stand testimony to its glorious past. Architectural wonders such as Lorenzkirche, Sebalduskirche, and the Heilig-Geist-Spital are some of the outstanding examples of structures from different eras that populate this beautiful city. Having witnessed the infamous war crimes tribunal Nuremberg Trials, the city has now moved on to become a fun and exciting place to explore with its toy museum, fountains, and a robust restaurant and bar scene. Visit the city around Christmastime when it hosts the famous annual market that is a treasure trove of handmade ornaments, gifts, and seasonal delicacies. A short drive from Nuremberg will take you to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Bamberg, which is also famous for its unusual smoked beer.
