So I’m currently sitting in Starbucks at 13:00 waiting for my train at 1:15 so I may as well write my blog.
Nuremberg was definitely one of my favourite parts of this journey and definitely the best way to end it, it rivals the time I spent in Frankfurt though considering they are so different from each other it wouldn’t be fair to compare.
Nuremberg is a beautiful city and I was actually pleasantly surprised, it really is like taking a step back in time with very few of buildings being particularly new though everything being in such good condition. There are plenty of old and amazing architecture to see such as towers, churches, city walls, sculptures, corner statues on buildings, murals etc., its the type of place you can spent the day just wandering about and not get bored. In contrast with Munich I think Nuremberg has really lived up more to my expectations of Bavaria only with a bit less beer drinking.
The hostel I stayed in was amazing, being built into the old second castle, only opened this month and despite having limited beds available this month I somehow managed to end up in a 6-bed room on my own, everything was very comfy and cosy and they have tried to keep some of the character of being in a castle with stone pillars and wooden beams, would definitely recommend.
I would also recommend Nuremberg purely for the architecture, tradition and visible history, it’s often thought of just for the Nuremberg trials/rallies, which is a shame.
The market is also a must see, which stretches quite a way out of the central square, is a permanent feature and really makes the need for a supermarket here unnecessary because you can get almost anything you would need at the market, which kept a lot of the very traditional feel to the city.
All in all an amazing city which I have had a great time in :).
