A journey to Nuremberg is an extraordinary experience, diving in history and traditions of Franconia‘s economic and cultural centre. Located in Bavaria, Nuremberg is the land’s second largest town after Munich with over half a million of inhabitants. The city centre has been largely rebuilt because of Second World War’s bombings, and the courthouse hosted the Nuremberg War Crime Trials.
Nuremberg is connected by both an underground (U-Bahn) and an overground railway service (S-Bahn). The latter connects the town with major European and German cities, while Nuremberg Airport – about seven kilometres from the town centre – is Bavaria’s second most important airport.
Nuremberg’s city centre includes monuments of high historical and artistic value. Many of them – although been rebuilt after the war – testify the town’s Medieval history. The city walls – XIV and XV century – form two circles: the outer circle is 15 kilometre long, while the inner one just eight.
