It is utterly fascinating to put yourself in the shoes of the world-famous painter in his original living rooms and work space. An additional feature on guided tours is an actress playing the part of Dürer’s wife, Agnes.

Anyone who only has one day in Nuremberg can save on a visit to the huge complex and instead find out all about this historical site using the well-compiled online exhibition.
Landmark, museum and the best views of the city. The complex consists of two fortresses: the Kaiserburg and the Burggrafenburg. Its roots go back to the year 1000.
Not just great for going out: most of the historic protected houses have been preserved in their original condition and convey a great impression of Nuremberg in the late Middle Ages.
The view of the Weinstadel and Henkersteg is one of the loveliest photo opportunities. The view of the Maxbrücke from the Kettensteg is also fantastic.
Even visitors who don’t have very much time to spare will still find the striking glass giant by the city wall near the Frauenturm a real highlight. The contrast of the old and the new makes a classic photo opportunity.
This huge square is always worth a visit, and not just in Advent, when the Christ Child opens the Christmas Market from the gallery of the Frauenkirche. You should also remember to rub the golden ring on the Schönen Brunnen fountain - it’s said to bring good luck. Although, locals tend to swear by the black one on the other side of the fountain…
The locals in Nuremberg like to call the district of Gostenhof “GoHo”. As with the district of New York that bears a similar name, it is a colourful and inspiring neighbourhood, where Wilhelminian meets post-war architecture. It’s worth visiting for the graffiti alone. And it’s also a great place for shopping and going out.
