Nuremberg has retained its medieval flair. Kaiserburg, Christkindlesmarkt and an underground labyrinth are unique experiences. The Franconian city of Nuremberg impresses its visitors with the medieval old town, which is the only major German city surrounded by a city wall. Founded as early as the ninth century, the city is dominated today by the Imperial Castle. If you walk from this landmark to the White Tower, which is also medieval, you will pass picturesque half-timbered houses, cross the Hangman's Bridge and the Main Market Square. This is where the Christkindlesmarkt takes place during Advent. After the opening by the Rauschgoldengel, not only Christmas decorations, but also the famous gingerbread are offered. While sightseeing, a walk through the Nuremberg Underworld is also recommended. The vaults and passages cut out of the rock in the 14th century form a fascinating labyrinth. The ideal starting point for all tours is IntercityHotel Nuremberg.
