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.
