An integral part of our marketing is a focus on appropriate themes each year. In the spotlight are important exhibits such as "The Early Dürer" in 2012 in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, birthday celebrations such as Richard Wagner’s 200th in 2013 – with a local focus on his work "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg" – or outstanding historical anniversaries such as "500 Years of the German Beer Purity Law " in 2016.

We highlight the ties to Nuremberg, create special offers and disseminate information about these special yearly themes.
