Nuremberg's Walkable Old Town

Nuremberg's Walkable Old Town, Nuremberg, Germany (B)

We arrived in the morning to Nuremberg on our last day of our Danube Cruise and organized a taxi ride from port to our hotel in Old Town for around 20 euro.

Our hotel, Gideon Designhotel, was in the Old Town of Nuremberg’s southeast corner. The hotel was conveniently located near a variety of restaurants, the pedestrian area, as well as the train and bus station. We really liked the location.

The entrance to the hotel and the lobby are rather non-descript, but perhaps that is why we got a large, modern room for European standards in a great location for only 165 euros. My favorite convenience was the charging stations on the side of the bed headboards. Brilliant!

We sat down for lunch at Pfefferstube, a traditional restaurant located inside the Pillhofer Hotel. The restaurant uses Saffron and pepper in Franconian cuisine honoring Nuremberg’s importance as the center of the spice route in the middle ages. The dark restaurant with shared seating delivers a rustic atmosphere with friendly service. With its outdoor patio, I can only imagine its popularity for happy hour on a nice day. ......
