The Castle District

The Castle District – Nuremberg’s historical heart which surrounds the symbol of the city, the Imperial Castle. There’s no better place to feel the old-fashioned charm and history of the town – and not only because the silhouette of the castle is always in sight. With its tiny, twisting cobblestoned alleyways and old half-timbered houses, the Castle District is, without doubt, an attraction for many visitors, but it also has something to offer locals. Small individual shops hidden off the beaten path and a multitude of diverse places to eat and drink shape the Castle District: From rustic pubs with original Franconian food to hip bars to culinary variety from all over the world. The attractive castle garden draws both those from the neighborhood and guests of the city to take a break and gaze at its beauty.

The Castle District is something special, no doubt about it. You notice it when you’re from Nuremberg, yet can’t help dragging yourself up the steep hill to the castle terrace for the millionth time. Puffing and out of breath, you’ll lean on the wall to look at the city below and think: “This is my hometown!”

Das Burgviertel ist etwas Besonderes, das ist nicht zu bestreiten. Man merkt es spätestens dann, wenn man sich als Nürnberger zum millionsten Mal den steilen Hang zur Aussichtsplattform der Burg hochschleppt, sich oben angekommen schwer schnaufend auf die Brüstung stützt, auf die Stadt hinunterschaut und sich denkt: “Des is mei Nemberch!”
