“If you do just one thing...go to the castle!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

The castle is nestled on a hilltop on the farthest point north of the center of town. The roads/streets leading you to it are quite narrow and there is a bit of construction (repaving) going on, bu be sure to go.

Once up top, you get an incredible view of the entire city! It is fabulous and helps you determine the visual pesrpective of the town from a birds eye view. The castle facilities are also worthwhile...there are some gardens, which are peaceful, well maintained and a real treat for vistors and locals alike. We wandered through and took several pictures while exploring.

Lastly on the way to the ticket office for the inteior of the castle, don"t miss the Bavarian style door that welcomes you in. It is painted and a huge door, that gives the catle, its size and fortification some perspective.Very cool.

“Sad that the inside was closed.”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

The Nuremberg Castle is not exactly what I think of as a castle, but it was very beautiful and the view from there is good. I enjoyed seeing the rest of the town from up above. Wish I could've seen the inside, but it is closed for renovations.

“Worth the walk up”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

It's worth walking up to take in the fantastic views and the garden is very nice. I hope the renovations pay off. Didn't take the tour when I went as I was pressed for time and had heard it wasn't worth the money, but I got a lot out of touring the castle grounds.

“imposing but completely rebuilt”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

The imposing castle dominates on the city from every part of the town you are. Unfortunately the interior rooms were under refurbishment and we could not visit them. Nice panoramic view on the city and the surroundings.

Reviewed May 23, 2013

The castle is in a very good location standing on the hill next to the old town. Good views from the walls. Unfortunately during our visit the castle was under renovations and the insides were not wort visiting according to the tourist information office at the castle.
