Nuremberg Old Town (Altstadt) Tours and Activities

Nuremberg Old Town (Altstadt)
The city of Nuremberg is one of the most walkable cities in Bavaria, and its second-largest. The old city (Altstadt), which was bombed flat during WWII, has since been completely restored to its original state. Unlike many other German cities rebuilt in the 1950s with ‘modern’ architecture, Nuremberg captured its original, quaint atmosphere during the rebuild — but with beautiful new buildings. Most of the city’s attractions are located in the compact Altstadt, which is located inside the city’s medieval walls.

In the middle of the Altstadt is the central square (Hauptmarkt), home to the Frauenkirche: a 14th-century Gothic church. The Hauptmarkt also has a gorgeous gilded fountain with tiers of figures called the Schöner Brunnen. At noon every day, you can watch the church clock’s figures do a little dance. Be sure to touch the golden ring on the wrought-iron gate for good luck. The Altstadt is rich with restaurants of all calibers: from the humble Donair-kebab to the Michelin-starred, there’s something for every palate.

Practical Info

Nuremberg’s Altstadt is easy to navigate: the Pegnitz river divides the center of town. On either side of the river are the matching spires of St Sebaldus and St Lorenz cathedrals. The perimeter of the medieval wall surrounding the Altstadt (which houses dozens of towers and four large gates) can be walked in about three hours. The beautifully restored castle (the Kaiserberg) sits on a hill to the northwest, and Nuremberg’s main train station (Hauptbahnhof) is located to the southeast.
