  • Awesome castle complex on the top of the highest hill and m Nuremberg. Bombed pretty badly in WWII, but reconstructed excellently. Lots of portions unhurt by time. 7 euro for the full tour (castle, tower, deep well demonstration. All are worth it. The deep well is especially cool, but I recommend getting to the front of the line so you can actually see down the well. The castle is like a museum, with a whole bunch of medieval artifacts and treasures, mostly related to killing people. The tower gives a great 360 view of the whole town. Tough climb, but worth it.

  • Awesome in town castle. They are working on it now. You can still go through some of it. Still lots to be shown we did not see. I would expect a winery or at least a wine seller. The holes in the stone are originals to pick them up to put them in place.

  • Stunning castle, the old city is wonderful to walk around. If there is a market going the atmosphere is amazing. The castle itself has plenty to see and do, with tickets to go down the well about 42 meters down, or climb the tower and get an extraordinary view of Nuremberg. The tour of the museum is stunning, an audio guide is a must and you can spend many hours there learning the history. The final part of the tour has some medieval weapons and Armour.

  • Super interesting. A great short museum trip. Would have given 5 stars, but there were some exhibits not translated to English. This did not reduce the interest level, but it did leave a little out of the story.

  • Such an awesome castle. The hill to it is pretty steep if you're coming from the city center. Recommend either having a tour, or an interpreter. They will make you pay to go in the tower or the museum. A lot of the castle is free however. Great place for sunset photos! The old blacksmith shop is a restaurant, however, the food is not the best.
