Opera, cabaret, modern art, jazz lounge or rock concert? During your visit to Nuremberg you are not restricted to just a few highlights from the widely diverse offerings of art and culture. Because Nuremberg is a city with a large amount of culture within short distances. All locations can be well reached on foot or by public transport. And many event locations for concerts and exhibitions, such as the Museum für Moderne Kunst (Museum of Modern Art), the Lorenzkirche, the Germanische Nationalmuseum, the Kongresshalle or the Katharinenruine are worth seeing just on their own for their architecture or their history.
Albrecht Dürer, the most famous son of the city, will mark the Nuremberg year of art and culture 2012. From 24 May 2012 the Germanische Nationalmuseum is presenting “The Early Dürer“, the largest Dürer exhibition for 40 years in Germany, with many loans from other museums finding their way back to Albrecht Dürer's home city, such as the famous portrait of Elisabeth Tucher, which once graced the old twenty Deutschmark note. Afterwards you can walk along the “Dürer Trail“ in the old town, in the footsteps of the famous Renaissance painter, and visit his former house.
But apart from art, music will also play an important role. What makes Nuremberg's selection for fans of art and culture so unique are the many open air events and festivals that take place to the historic backdrop of the old town. Why not get caught up in the enthusiasm of hundreds of thousands for the Blaue Nacht (Blue Night), the Klassik Open Air at the Luitpoldhain or the Bardentreffen and combine your trip to Nuremberg with a visit to one of the numerous unusual museums that this city has to offer? Nuremberg is the Middle Ages and the Imperial Castle. But Nuremberg is also the avantgarde and modern architecture.
