“Rebuilt”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Much of the town was destroyed in WWII so the buildings are not original. Castle was OK, not great. Some churches are still undergoing reconstruction so are not back to former glory. Certainly worth a day if you are in the area.

“Altstadt Fest is a must!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The Altstadt Fest runs every year in mid September (usually just before Oktoberfest) and is an absolute must for any traveller.

The old town is filled with long tables and local vendors serving up amazing food and beer. It kind of seems like it is what Oktoberfest started out as before all the hype.

There is no fee for entry, and you can choose any table you like without a reservation.

You will meet tons of locals, and drink a LOT of amazing beer. We highly recommend this for anyone visiting the city in September.

Historically Interesting with so much to see. I would suggest a guide from the Tourist Office to help find various places of interest.

“Charming old town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We loved walking through Old Town. There are several gorgeous cathedrals, plenty of shopping and restaurants and the castle at the end. We had a great experience here!

“Marvellous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

This was our second visit to Nuremberg. Initially we were hesitant to see this town but after our first visit we felt it was one of the most lovely places in Germany to visit. There are many wonderful sites in the Altstadt. It is simply charming!
