Altstadt, Nuremberg

#3 of 199 in Things to do in Nuremberg
Landmark · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
In the heart of Nuremburg, Altstadt represents the city's rich history and its recent resilience. As you explore the old town's tree-lined streets, you can admire the imposing, medieval stone fortress and timbered houses. Much of Nuremburg was destroyed in World War II bombing. You may find yourself heartened by the last 70-plus years of recovery and rebuilding efforts. Consider a stop at the Church of St. Sebald. The town's saint is buried within. The riverfront promenade makes for a pleasant walk and place to grab a bite to eat.

  • This is a beautiful old town with lots to see from churches, markets, monuments and beautiful architecture. And it is easy to stroll around the old town.  more »
  • A beautiful city, great market place, lots of history. We were lucky enough to visit whilst a market was on. Covid restrictions were being enforced, wearing of masks and observing a one way system.  more »
  • This place is awesome. Saturdays no appointment needed but there's usually a wait. Staff speaks English and are very friendly.
  • Went here today for a haircut. Super friendly place! And one of the best cuts I have ever had. The cut was very precise. Well worth the money. Highly recommended. Looking forward to my next visit. (Walk-ins on Saturdays otherwise you’ll need an appointment).
