Food and Drink in Nuremberg

© Uwe Niklas

More than another city in Germany, Nuremberg stands for culinary delights. While gingerbread is most popular during the Christmas season, the city's finger-sized sausages can be enjoyed all year long. Franconian specialties such as a crisy "Schäufele" pork shoulder or pan-fried carp are also worth a try. A cool beer from a small and privatley owned Franconian brewery is always the right accompaniment.
