  • It is definitely worth a visit even if they are currently carrying out renovations and some areas are closed to the public. Very nice the church preserved inside. I recommend taking an audio guide (2 euros), well done, which will help you understand the history of the castle and Nuremberg. Very nice museum of armor and weapons Before entering you can enjoy from a lookout a beautiful view of The Old Town of Norimbera. The visit takes about 2 hours
