Nuremberg: From The Middle Ages To The Future

GERMANY: The medieval city centre of Nuremberg, with its historic half-timbered houses and traditional Christmas market, is a popular destination for the Christmas holidays but this historic city in the north of Bavaria, is fast gaining a reputation as the place to be throughout the year.  Whether you’re looking for a fix of culture, history or recreation, Nuremberg has you covered.

Time travel to the Middle Ages: Surrounded by a well-maintained city wall the historical city centre of Nuremberg, with its labyrinthine streets and picturesque half-timbered houses, sits at the foot of the Imperial Castle. 

If you’re looking to explore, The Adina Apartment Hotel Nuremberg, centrally located at the Kornmarkt, is the ideal starting point. Located just a few minutes’ walk from must-see attractions including the Imperial Castle (with its breathtaking view over the city), the Kettensteg or the church Frauenkirche with the Hauptmarkt (Main Market Square) and the historic old town.

Sharing pride of place with classic attractions, Nuremberg’s infamous ‘Nürnberger Felsengänge’ offer a worm’s eye view in tunnels beneath the historic city. This large labyrinth spans more than 25,000 square metres under the ground and can be explored on guided tours.  

Whilst not as famous as the historic old town, Nuremberg’s underground vaults were first mentioned in documents back in 1380. At this time almost everyone brewed their own beer, but only on condition that the house had a cellar for maturation and storage. Thanks to a union of the residents, the solid rock cellar complex was created and is so strong it was able to withstand attacks during World War II and helped saved the lives of thousands. 

To add a bit of spice to the visit, tourists to Bavaria’s second largest city can also take part in an Escape game inside the old rock passages – it’s definitely a fun talking point when the sight-seeing is done.

A glimpse into the future at Deutsches Museum:  Starting next year, visitors of the medieval Nuremberg will be able to experience the future alongside the past when the ‘Zukunftsmuseum’ (Future Museum) - a branch of the Deutsches Museum - opens at the end of 2020.  

How will today's developments and technologies affect tomorrow's lives? The museum's interactive exhibition will be dedicated to this question and will cover various topics relating to mobility, energy, health, automation and communication. 

Live Like A Local: The ‘Café Schnepperschütz’ on the Hallerwiese next to the river Pegnitz is a popular spot for locals to enjoy sunny weather and a Franconian Riesling and local beer.  Another hidden secret - the small ice cream café ‘Kleine Eismanufaktur’ in the Weißgerbergasse in Nuremberg's old town - is also worth a stop. Here, you’ll find unusual varieties of handmade organic ice-cream – and each flavour is as delicious as the last. 

From rustic to hip there is something for every taste in the alley ways, a plethora of small cafés, restaurants and bars offer a place to rest and to socialize with friends. In the evening the city’s countless beer gardens beckon.
