Nuremberg in 1day! Please advise!


I am accompanying my boyfriend on a business trip to Nuremberg next week and will spend Tuesday evening, night and Wednesday there on my own. We will be staying near the main train station.

Can anyone please advise me how to see the city best?

Where to go out in the evening, to have nice dinner and then a nice not too expensive bar with music for Tuesday night?

What are the must-sees and where is the best shopping for Wednesday?

I will appreciate all help!;o) Thank you!

Must-sees are the Altstadt (old city) and the documentation centre in the former Nazi rally grounds.


Historical Mile (self guided walking tour)


-> Plan

The tour starts at Königstor (#1) directly opposite the main railway station.

As you're from Prague the Altstadt won't be that impressive. It was rebuilt after WWII in a historical style. To get an idea how it looked after the war


Otherwise Nuremberg - similar to Prague - was one of the most important cities in the HRE. I.e. partly the same master builders, artists etc. worked there.

Only after the HRE the cities developed differently. Nuremberg came to Bavaria and the dreams of the Franconians of an own state never came true. This lack of importance/developement has however kept large parts of the city walls in place. Which is really rare for a city of this size.
