Here the story of Germany and Nurnberg is felt inside the walls of the castle. A nice view from the top. Worth walking to the castle and around it

Walked to castle when I was in town overnight. Long climb uphill but managed it. Good picture taking of city from the top. Not actually much open inside to see but not expensive admission.
