Shop till you drop for the hottest label designs, take a casual stroll through the weekly market, enjoy a classy cappuccino - Nuremberg lets you live life at your own pace.
The oldest and largest pedestrian zone in Europe stretches through Nuremberg's historical Old Town in a golden triangle of fashion, lifestyle and luxury. Yet even in the narrow streets below the castle or in the hip district Gostenhof (GoHo) exceptional and trendy finds can be made.
In the Kaiserstraße, Nuremberg's elegant shopping promenade, you can drool over the luxury of illustrious fashion labels, expensive jewelry and exclusive interior designs.
Great stores with great brands as well as trendy label designs have settled in Nuremberg's best known shopping street, the Karolinenstraße.
The Breite Gasse attracts shoppers with young brands from trendy to outlandish and anyone who just wants to drift through will also discover new and eccentric items in the many small side streets.
