Nuremberg may be the second-largest city in Bavaria, but it’s not going to play second fiddle any longer. Move over, Munich! This city’s got awesome markets, an impressive castle and a food and beer scene all of its own (also, you can drive to Munich if you must).
Check out Wotif’s Nuremberg car hire options—they’re as sweet as the gingerbread this city is famous for.
The Imperial Castle of Nuremberg is probably at the top of your list—and if it’s not, it should be. Park your Nuremberg car rental nearby and use those feet! The castle has kept watch over the town since the Middle Ages, so yeah, it’s definitely seem some stuff. Ever heard of the Imperial Diet? No, it’s not a weight-loss fad. It was the highest assembly of the empire, and Nuremberg Castle hosted tons of them.
When you’re done being impressed by the Knights Hall and chapel, be sure to visit the Burgermeistergarten, and not just because of its funny name. The moat, stone gates and statues are like something out of a fairytale.
Feeling mysteriously hungry? Hop in your car rental in Nuremberg and go get a burger—or more likely, some schnitzel.
All right, you know you can’t visit Germany without drinking some delicious, cold bier. You’ll certainly find plenty of weissbier (Bavaria’s beverage of choice) in Nuremberg, but you’re on holiday, so why not go big or go home? The unofficial capital of beer is 170km south: Munich!
Eisbock, helles, kolsch, pilsener…lovers of frothy pints will be in liquid heaven. Pro tip: Eat plenty of sausage and dampfnudel pastries (a Bavarian pretzel necklace is optional). And obviously, you’ll need to look into Munich hotels.
