It is not so hard to climb to the castle. You will get awarded by the view of the city and a beautiful scenic. Just try to go up the stairs of the tower. The museum is interesting, although our son did not want to get inside.

Get a good view of the city, and the spiral staircase is a nice picture coming up as well :) you don't have to pay for the whole ticket if you just want to browse.

I went on a weekday. i nearly had thr place to myself. Was great to take unobstructed photos. I recommend if you are able to climb the watchtower. Its a workout but a nice view, the stairs are steep, am afraid of heights but was able to do it because it was a Thursday and not crowded and could take my time on the way down.

About 20-25 minutes walk form the train station, some up hill hike near the castle. Great view of Nuremberg at the top.
It is the best to walk in the morning since the weather is mild, and less tourists around. No need to buy ticket if you just walk around the compound and enjoy the view.
