Nuremberg was an unofficial capital of the Holy Roman Empire, but its name is also associated with the Nazis and their post-war trials. . Kaiserburg On a ridge above steep sandstone cliffs is a castle that was a seat of real power during the times of the Holy Roman Empire. It was here that the imperial courts met, while every newly elected emperor was obliged by decree to hold his first Imperial Diet at Kaiserburg. The Tower dates back to the 14th century and the top floor boasts an observation platform from where you can marvel at the best panorama of the city. Nuremberg Trials Memorial Courtroom 600 at the Justizpalast, where high-ranking Nazis were brought to justice between 1945 and 1949, is a still a functioning courtroom, which makes it tricky to visit during the week, unless you come between sessions. The best time to visit is Saturdays, when no sessions are convened. The top floor of the courthouse has been converted into a museum that recounts the story of the Nuremberg Trials, detailing the defendants and their crimes. Romans, Dürer and sausages Albrecht Dürer’s House Arguably Germany’s greatest painter, Albrecht Dürer lived and worked in this timber framed townhouse in Nuremberg from 1509 until his death in 1528. As a historical document, Dürer‘s House is unrivalled, given that it is the only standing example of a 15th-century artist’s house in Europe. The building suffered some bomb damage during World War II, but was soon restored – though its reopening was delayed to coincide with the 500th anniversary of Dürer‘s birth in 1971. The house is one of the few burgher houses left from the golden age of the 15th century. The rooms are decorated with furniture from the period, while a rotating exhibition presents Dürer’s drawings. Fembohaus Fembohaus is a city museum housed in beautiful five-storey structure that dates back to the late 16th century. Formerly a family home and map-printing workshop, it now represents a shortcut to exploring the culture, customs and trades that flourished in Nuremberg over the course of 950 years. Famous Bratwurst Nuremberg’s local speciality sausage is protected under EU law, so it can only be produced in this city. And it has been produced in the city since 1567, though you may be surprised by how small they actually are - only about eight centimetres long, so you might receive six in a serving. The flavour is also unlike any other German sausage, as they’re seasoned with fresh marjoram. FOTO: Depositphotos / Massimo Santi
