Nuremberg, Germany was founded at the turn of the 11th century as the site of an Imperial castle, and was considered the unofficial capital of the Holy Roman Empire. It has a rich religious history and troubled wartime past, both of which contribute to the essence of modern-day Nuremberg.
Today the city is overtly multi-cultural, encompassing many surrounding villages and bursting at the seams with world-class art, quaint architecture, and an active performing arts scene.
We'll investigate the rich medieval history visible throughout the city, see the 900-year-old ramparts that surround its heart, the great Imperial castle and the resplendent Old Town Hall. We'll also visit and learn about the legend of the Beautiful Fountain and step on the infamous Zeppelin field utilized for rallies during the Third Reich.
We will also have a chance to partake of some of Nuremberg's most renowned treasures, including its distinctively spiced gingerbread, high-quality sausages, and impeccably handcrafted toys. The bucolic setting, charming locals, and numerous museums are sure to fill our time here with wonder and a sense of discovery.
Nuremberg's ancient identity derives from much more than gingerbread, of course. It is rooted in romantic cobbled streets, glorious vistas, masterpieces of Gothic architecture, and splendid patricians' houses. In the shadow of its impressive castle, Nuremberg's contemporary pulse offers a fascinating blend of old and new, unique to this gem of a city.
