Emporer Charles IV visits Nuremberg in State Exhibition

Nuremberg played an important role in Emperor Charles IV's politics: Today, buildings such as the Imperial Castle and the churches of Our Lady, St. Lorenz and St. James still bear witness to his love of this city. In 1356, he proclaimed the first 23 chapters of the Golden Bull, an early form of the constitutional law of the Holy Roman Empire, in Nuremberg. Chiming at 12 noon, the "Männleinlaufen" glockenspiel on the Church of Our Lady is a daily reminder of this event. Charles's oldest son Wenzel - his successor to the imperial throne - was born here.

The Free State of Bavaria and the Czech Republic will commemorate the 700th birthday of Emporer Charles IV with a joint state exhibition accompanied by an international program of events. The Bohemian and Roman-German King Charles IV (1316-1378), crowned emperor of the Holy Roman Empire in 1355 in Rome, is one of the most significant and multifaceted rulers in European history.

The House of Bavarian History has created the opulent show "Charles IV / Prague/ Nuremberg". Here is a link to their press information:
