Nuremberg's historic town center stands in the shadow of a towering imperial castle that dominates its northwestern corner.
Take a break from the city and head to Nuremberg Zoo and Barockgarten-Hesperidengarten Nurnberg. Venture out of the city with trips to Wurzburg (Würzburg Residence, Marienburg Fortress, & more) and Rothenburg (Old Town, Kathe Wohlfahrt's Christmas Shop, & more). There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Kaiserburg Nurnberg, snap pictures at Karlsbruecke, browse the exhibits of Museum Tucherschloss und Hirsvogelsaal, and steep yourself in history at Reichsparteigelande (Nazi Party Rally Grounds).
