The best things to do in Nuremberg

One of the most important historical attractions in Nuremberg is the Imperial Castle, which is one of the emblems of the city. It is situated near the old town is one of the most important imperial palaces of the Middle Ages. It was home to all the emperors of the Holy Roman Empire from the years 1050-1571 and is now open to the public, so it should be first on your list of what to do in Nuremberg. You can visit the main building with its Romanesque double chapel, the rooms of the emperors, the well, and one of the towers. You can climb to the castle from the Church of St. Sebaldus, one of the most beautiful religious places to visit in Nuremberg. It was built in 1273 and is the oldest of the city. It is the best example of the transition from Romanesque to Gothic styles of German art. It is close to the market. Highlights include the windows and its works of art, including the crucifixion of sculptor Veit Stoss or the tomb of St. Sebaldus by Peter Vischer.

There is lots more stuff to do in Nuremberg. For example, there's the Church of San Lorenzo, an example of a typical German Gothic church with three naves at the same height. It contains the famous Angelus of Veit Stoss, made of wood and suspended from the ceiling, along with the tabernacle of Adam Kraft and a sundial by Johannes Stabius.

Looking for non-religious Nuremberg activities? Zeltner's Palace is one of the essential things to see in Nuremberg. It is a palace built in the fourteenth century. Marvel at its facade and the beautiful gardens and ponds. The list of things to do in Nuremberg is endless, but it's important not to miss Nuremberg attractions like the Spielzeugmuseum -- the toy museum -- the beautiful fountain in the central square, Pellerhaus, or the many museums of great interest in the city.
