Nuremberg's many sights make sure that no visitor will be bored. From the Germanische Nationalmuseum, Albrecht Dürer's House, the New Museum for Art and Design right through to the Documentation Centre Party Rally Grounds, over 30 museums offer exhibitions on a wide variety of topics.
Those who prefer open-air exploration, may take a look at some of Nuremberg's many historical buildings. The imperial castle is particularly impressive. Thick walls with 80 towers enclose the historical old quarter. A wealth of attractions in the old quarter bring history vividly to life – chief amongst them the medieval Kaiserburg Castle with its museum. Impressive works of art in the Gothic churches of Nuremberg's old town bear testament to the city's heyday. Visitors can admire traditional handicrafts in the Handwerkerhof craft centre.
The Franconian city of Nuremberg has a lively cultural scene. The art gallery (Kunsthalle) has regularly changing temporary exhibitions of German and international contemporary art since 1960. The State Museum for Art and Design draws the crowds with its ultra-modern architecture on the outside and contemporary international art and modern design inside.
Nuremberg's churches and fountains are also well worth a visit. All those who are curious for more, can visit the "Tiergarten" one of Europe's most beautifully landscaped zoos, the Planetarium, the State Theatre and Opera and many fascinating small theatres.
