  • The imperial castle in Nuremberg is a magnificent castle complex with great views over Nuremberg. The castle also contains a collection of weapons worth seeing, as well as various armor and helmets. In addition, there are various rooms and furniture from the time. The entrance fee includes a guided tour/tour of the fountain. The fountain is located in the castle complex. No credit card payment is possible. You get a small discount of 2 euros when you present a severely disabled card. In addition, it is advisable to buy a combined ticket in the castle, which includes a visit to the Fembo-Haus/Stadtmuseum. In the upside-down case (first fembo house and then Kaiserburg) you don't get a discount. The castle should definitely be visited during a visit to Nuremberg. In the immediate vicinity you can also linger wonderfully with coffee and cakes.
