This Middle Franconian city has more to offer than just its picturesque Old Town at the foot of the gorgeous imperial castle (Kaiserburg). The city's heritage is indeed much more varied. Architecture, artistic wealth and museums keep history alive and make this a very popular city among tourists.
The most popular events held here are the Christmas Market, when the Old Town teems with visitors from around the world, and the 'Rock im Park' music festival, which mostly attracts young people. An economic and cultural centre, Nuremberg constitutes an important metropolis together with Fürth and Erlangen.
