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 crispy "Schäufele" pork shoulder or pan-fried carp are also worth a try. A cool beer from a small an privately owned Franconian brewery is alway the right accompaniment.
In Nuremberg, it's not just traditional Franconian food that you'll find on your plate: A wide variety of gourmet restaurants offer pleasures for sophisticated palates. Fresh regional products - often from the near-by "Knoblauchsland" vegetable cultivation area - are the stars here. It's therefore no surprise that Nuremberg, as a "BioMetropole", has taken up the cause of organics. And as Germany's secret capital of food trucks, there's no end to the clever and creative compositions you can sample.
