I enjoy this place at least once a year! Wonderful place in the heart of the city with traditional german cuisine and nice draught beers. Nurnberger sausages with crauts are awesome! Better to book i fair advance during the weekends!

As part of my marathon visit of Nuremberg I stopped by here and snapped a few photos, I'm not sure what else you can do, but I'd recommend grabbing a bite in the market and soaking up this site with your significant other.

A former hospital, this lovely building is best viewed from Museumsbrücke (Museum Bridge). It now houses a restaurant on the ground floor and senior living apartments on the floors above.

Very picturesque spot, easy to find as its one of the main bridges from the south shopping area to the north old town. Pretty even on a rainy day, makes for nice photos
