Ist sie's oder ist sie's nicht - die älteste erhaltene Taschenuhr der Welt? Das Germanische Nationalmuseum Nürnberg klärt darüber in einer Ausstellung vom 4. Dezember 2014 bis 12. April 2015 auf.
Rund um die dosenförmige Sackuhr im Besitz des Germanischen Nationalmuseums in Nürnberg tobt seit Jahrzehnten ein Streit über Echtheit und Fälschung und den Ruhm der Erfinderleistung. Ein Forschungsprojekt ging diesen Fragen zwei Jahre lang nach. Das Ergebnis: Die Anlage der Uhr stammt durchaus aus dem 16. Jahrhundert, sie unterlag jedoch im 19. Jahrhundert erheblichen Umarbeitungen... ...

Nuremberg can count itself as an authentic Cranach site. Cranach visited the city during the Imperial Diet of 1524 in the entourage of his employer, Prince Elector Frederick the Wise. On this occasion, Albrecht Dürer created the famous Bayonne portrait drawing of Cranach.
In 1508 in Nuremberg, Frederick the Wise issued Cranach a letters patent. From then on, he used the emblem from his coat-of-arms, a winged snake, as his signature. Similarities between of early works of Cranach and Dürer’s art have led researchers to conjecture that Cranach visited Nuremberg before he entered his employment at the court in Saxony. The Germanisches Nationalmuseum houses...
Stadt der Meistersinger konnte punkten Die Deutsche Zentrale für Tourismus (DZT) hatte 2013 neben dem Themenjahr "Junges Reisen nach Deutschland" den Schwerpunkt auf den 200sten Geburtstag von Richard Wagner gesetzt. Der Komponist hat Nürnberg mit "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg" gleich eine ganze Oper gewidmet, daher hatte die CTZ 2013 das Thema Wagner als Schwepunkt für die touristische Vermarktung definiert. Das mit den Vertretern der Nürnberger Kultur entwickelte Programm rund um Richard Wagner stellte die Grundlage für ein überregionales Marketingkonzept dar.
Die Deutsche Zentrale für Tourismus in Frankfurt veranstaltet jährlich nur noch zwei Pressereisen (Nord und Süd) zum jeweiligen PR-Jahresthema. Nürnberg war auf der Südschiene neben München und Bayreuth Gastgeber für je zwei Journalisten aus Schweden, Polen, Türkei und Dänemark. Für sie holte das Germanische Nationalmuseum die Meistersinger-Partitur aus dem Tresor; abends wurde der...

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.

Two structures along the southern arm of the river and the north wall of...

Imperial Castle Location

The Imperial Castle atop the rocky promontory above Nuremberg was one of the most important fortified imperial palaces of the Old Holy Roman Empire.
The Imperial Castle atop the rocky promontory above Nuremberg was one of the most important fortified imperial palaces of the Old Holy Roman Empire. The castle and the city served as the location for numerous imperial assemblies. From 1356 on the "Golden Bull" of Emperor Charles IV provided that every newly elected future ruler must hold his first imperial Diet in Nuremberg. Moreover, from...
The world-famous Nuremberg Christmas Market is closely tied to the figure of the Nuremberg Christkind. In the 16 century, in protestant areas, the Christkind took over an important task from St. Nicholas: Bringing children their gifts at Christmastime. It was only natural to host a market where dolls, toys and Christmas treats were for sale.
How the “Kindles-Marck” became the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt It is assumed that the origin of the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt goes back to the traditional fairs of the late Middle Ages. The oldest written evidence of the market is found on an oval bentwood box, which was offered for sale at the “Kindles-Marck” of 1628 and is today part of the collection of the Germanisches...

In 2016, the 500th anniversary of the German Beer Purity Law will be celebrated throughout Germany. This general interest has inspired the Nuremberg Convention and Tourism Office (CTZ) to take a comprehensive look at culinary topics and local cuisine. Typical food and drink of the region is currently trendy and surveys show that guests gladly and intensively take advantage of the wide spectrum of gastronomic offerings in Nuremberg. The CTZ will use this topic as a marketing focus in the long term, in addition to its core themes of art, culture and events; shopping; the region; business; "an obligation to the past" and the Christmas Market. The medium-term marketing strategy of the Nuremberg Convention and Tourism Office is based on what Nuremberg has to offer and market research and trend scouting. This defines the yearly focus and core themes which are then supported by target-group-specific communication in national and international target markets. Once again, the CTZ has gathered together the diverse range of offerings in the city and will share information and create publicity - all concepts are developed in close cooperation with the hotel and restaurant association. A new strategic partner is also bringing its ideas: Since January 1, 2016, the Nuremberg Sausage Protection Association is working together with the CTZ.
Nuremberg Specialties When a question arises about Nuremberg specialties, surveys show that bratwurst and gingerbread are the absolute frontrunners. And rightly so, as these tasty tidbits grilled on a beechwood fire look back on more than 700 years of history ... and sweet "lebkuchen" were baked here by monks as early as the 11th century. Both delicacies have been awarded a protected...
- Record of 3.3 million overnight stays, an increase of 3.3 percent compared to last year - Positive development of overnight stays by foreign guests, a gain of 8.4 percent - Growth in tourism arrivals of 5.8 percent, to a total of 1.8 million
“We are especially pleased with the latest overnight stays record, as it was unexpected, given that 2017 was the weakest trade fair year for the last 12 years,” said Yvonne Coulin, Managing Director of the Nuremberg Convention and Tourist Office (CTZ). In 2017, several international trade fairs which draw strong attendance – such as GaLaBau, Chillventa and BrauBeviale – had their off year....
