  • The Kaiserburg delivered more than I expected. Granted, seeing the imperial castle involves a lot of stair-climbing, but the formal rose garden itself was worth the effort and granted a striking view....  more

  • One of the best tourist attractions in Nuremberg. Buy the combination tickets to visit the castle, tower and the well. It's definitely worth it. You can easily spend close to 2 - 3 hours here. The view from the top of the tower is spectacular. Highly recommended.
  • Great experience. Inner chambers worth visiting too. Before the visit I had no clue about Holy Roman Empire on German lands and now I feel myself as a semipro on that matter. Very good quality souvenirs and n the souvenir shop as well
