Hotel Victoria Nürnberg

Experience tradition in a modern and handicapped accessible way in the heart of Nuremberg's Old Town at Hotel Victoria.

Description

Experience tradition in a modern way in the heart of Nuremberg's Old Town.

The listed Hotel VICTORIA was built in 1896 in the style of Nuremberg's Gothic Revival and is nestled between the King's Tower, the traditional Craftsmen's Court, the medieval city wall and the New Museum of Art and Design. Inside the hotel, guests can expect an inspiring atmosphere with that extra bit of personal service and cordiality, in keeping with the motto of tradition and modernity. The individually furnished rooms with names such as HochGefühl or KreativSchub are linked to exciting art concepts by Nuremberg artists. The rooms in the KulturGenuss category offer a very special experience: the exclusive view across Klarissenplatz into the exhibition rooms of the Neues Museum makes the rooms something very special - where else can you view art and design in a museum without having to enter it?
