Nuremberg has a fun old town to walk through, it has a classic feel and a lot of to see. From the old town you can do almost everything the city has to offer except the documentation center. I would recommend stopping at both.

Most of the Altstadt (old town) is dominated by building from the medival architecural times. What is astonishing is, that most of Nuremberg was destroyed during WW2. Many building that look like they are hundreds of years old, were actually rebuild in the post war...More
