At lunch, make sure to taste the famous Nuremberg fried sausages!

Go for a sightseeing walk through the picturesque old lanes and the castle gardens. Then admire St. Jacobs Church and its wood-carved altar by Tilman Riemenschneider. Marvel at half-timbered houses, city gates and the mighty Renaissance Town Hall. In your leisure time, visit the fascinating Medieval Crime Museum, Doll and Toy Museum, German Christmas Museum and many more.
