Things to Do in Nuremberg - 1 Day Nuremberg Itinerary

Things to Do in Nuremberg - 1 Day Nuremberg Itinerary, Nuremberg, Germany (B)

Nuremberg is one of those places with true German charm. Located on the Romantic Road, there are a lot of things to do in Nuremberg. Stay overnight in this magical medieval city and you’ll get a lot of great photo opportunities in the late evening and early mornings when the tour buses are long gone or haven’t even arrived yet! Here is my 1 day in Nuremberg itinerary.

It’s best to visit the majestic Imperial Castle in the early morning right after it opens. Its been the symbol of the city since the Middle Ages and one of the highest points in the city. The castle was of great importance during the Holy Roman Empire and the German Nation and should be on everyone’s must-see list when coming to Germany. Since 2013, you can enjoy a vast permanent exhibition showcasing castle elements and their functions in their historical context. Additionally, you’ll get to learn a lot about the Holy Roman Empire and the role of Nuremberg in the late Middle Ages.

One highlight when visiting the castle is the guided tour of the Deep Well. These tours are from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm (in winter from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm) every half hour. This well was essential to life at the castle since the Middle Ages and it never fails to impress during a tour: from the top of the 16th-century parapet built of sandstone ashlars, the shaft has been driven down over 50 meters into the rock. ......
