In the heart of Nuremburg, Altstadt represents the city's rich history and its recent resilience. As you explore the old town's tree-lined streets, you can admire the imposing, medieval stone fortress and timbered houses. Much of Nuremburg was destroyed in World War II bombing. You may find yourself heartened by the last 70-plus years of recovery and rebuilding efforts. Consider a stop at the Church of St. Sebald. The town's saint is buried within. The riverfront promenade makes for a pleasant walk and place to grab a bite to eat.

  • This area was a good 20 minute walk from our hotel but we went there twice a day. Stunning buildings like you’ve never seen before and all in immaculate condition. This is made even more remarkable...

  • The old town area is wonderful and well worth a wander around. Find a cafe and watch the world scurry by.
