A great example of how old town walls shaped the city (and the river crossing) for centuries. You can imagine how life must have been a few hundred years ago. Essentially free, and one is bever far from a place to get coffee or so.

We stayed right outside this area so walking to it was no problem. There is so much to see within the city walls. Lots of history. Also lots of shops and restaurants. You could spend a couple days investigating all that is within the walls.

The first townwalls were built in 13th century, later they were confirmed several times. They surround the Old Town. They are almost 5kms long and 7-8ms high and they have about 100 bastion towers. Walking along them is very romantic, we enjoyed it very much. You need comfty shoes, but it’s worth, because the view is magnificient. It’s a must-see site.

The walls were closed for walking along when I was there. Very little information online as to when you can walk the city walls of Nuremberg. They are open from 1st April to 31st October from 8am to 8pm (according to the sign at one of the entrances)

They look impressive from the outside and returning to walk the walls is my excuse for wanting to go back to Nuremberg

Went to look at the walls and wandered into the red light area which fronts onto the walls. The walls were well preserved / restored and certainly better looking and attractive that most of the girls in the area.

One of the best and well preserved medieval city walls can be found in Nuremberg. It dates back to XII century, but the construction works of the defense system of walls and towers officially was completed in XVI century.
The total length of the city walls was about 5 km, but after severe bombings during WWII and further destroy of the city almost 4 km still standing.
Together with Nuremberg Castle, City Walls of Nuremberg represents one of the best defense systems and most considerable in Europe.
Worth a visit.

Thick stone walls. Nothing really spectacular. In many places they are well preserved or restored. Many defense towers, from place to place.

The walls are well maintained and not something I would have traditionally seen elsewhere. Hard to believe that on the other side is a city centre.

Best advice that we were given about Nuremberg- Make no plans, just walk. This advice did not disappoint. Beautiful city, beautiful sites, great food and friendly people.
