Sightseeing in Nuremberg

Places of interest Highlights

The Imperial Castle and the artist Albrecht Dürer are names that are inseparably linked to Nuremberg, but beyond these, there are many other attractive sights to discover and explore: The picturesque Old Town with its ensemble of historical buildings, imposing churches and romantic winding lanes; the rock-cut cellars buried deep within the castle hill and – outside the Old Town – sights like the famous St. John’s cemetery or attractions like the Nuremberg Zoo. You’ll find some of the most interesting things to see and do here.
