Visiting Nuremberg, Germany

No reviews, be the first!

Nuremberg is probably best known for its association with the Nazi party during World War II, its defeat by US army forces in 1945 and the subsequent war crime trials that occurred there. But the city has a much longer and richer history than just this terrible time.

Located in Bavaria, 110 miles (170-km) north of Munich, Nuremberg is a fortified medieval city of castles, first established in the 11th century. Until the early 19th century it was unofficially the capital of the Holy Roman Empire, a loose amalgamation of Central European states which all had their own separate kings, princes and dukes.
