The Franconian Imperial city of Nuremberg

Quite in the center of Bavaria lies the old imperial city of Nuremberg. With a little over 500,000 inhabitants, it is the second largest city of the Free State. Located only about 140 km north of Munich, the city of Nuremberg is yet so completely different. Nuremberg is worth a visit not only at Christmas time, when the famous “Christkindlesmarkt” takes place, but at any time of the year.
Nuremberg: Culture and a medieval city center and perhaps the best bratwurst in Bavaria await you.

NUREMBERG

For centuries the city of Nuremberg had the special status of “immediate free imperial city“, i.e. it was directly subordinate to the respective emperor of the Holy Roman Empire.
This special status lasted until 1806, when Nuremberg was incorporated into the new Kingdom of Bavaria. Before this, famous personalities such as Emperor Frederick II.Barbarossa had stopped here several times and lived in the city’s current landmark: the Nuremberg Imperial Castle, which still is towering majestically over the Old Town and at the same time forms part of the almost completely preserved city wall.

The city played an incredibly special role in National Socialism: it was one of the five so-called “Führer cities” of Adolf Hitler, who awarded Nuremberg the honorary title of “City of the Reich Party Rallies“.

The awarding of the title was followed by deeds: in the south of the city the “Reichsparteitagsgelände” (Party Rally Grounds) with an area of around 17 square kilometres was built. Only a few of the planned monumental buildings were completed, most notably the Congress Hall, which was built in the style of the Roman Colosseum. Furthermore, huge areas were planned as parade grounds and with the “German Stadium” the world’s largest stadium for 405,000 spectators was to be built here. Today the area serves as a place for events, but also as a place of learning and remembrance. The monumental Congress Hall is now home to the Documentation Center  Nuremberg Party Rally Grounds.

Until war-destruction, Nuremberg was the largest of the German cities with an almost completely unchanged medieval city centre. By the end of the war however, up to 90% of the city center had been destroyed, but during reconstruction the highest priority was given to restoring the most important historical buildings. As a result, Nuremberg’s inner city today presents itself with a successful architectural face.

Nuremberg invites you to get to know this self-confident, charming and historic city. Either to enjoy the medieval cityscape, to go on a historical search for traces or just to have a taste of the famous Nuremberg bratwurst. Visit the city of Albrecht Dürer, the place where the Nuremberg Trials took place, and walk along the “Historical Mile“, which includes the most important sights in Nuremberg’s Old Town.
