This place is really worth a visit for two main reasons: to climb the tower and get fantastic views over Nuremberg; to increase your knowledge of the Holy Roman Empire and Nuremberg's role within it. The museum is also good - especially the arms and...More

A wonderful and well organized touristic attraction. This castle not only offers a nice and vivid picture of the medieval art and lifestyle but is also a great way of explore the history and development of what is now Germany. Totally recommended!

Nice historical buildings in Nurnberg. Located in the center of Nurnberg, so it can be easily reached by walk. There were no entry fees, if you are not going directly inside the castle.

The area you can view is not large but is interesting. Perhaps if you know more about German history it would be great. Enjoyed exploring the rooms though.

We saw this as part of a guided tour, but only the exterior and the courtyard, not the interior. It’s interesting and picturesque, certainly worth a look. There is some steep walking to get in and out, so not accessible for wheelchairs I think (...More

On a very warm afternoon, this was a bit of a hike, but worth the view of the city from the top. Not much else to see or do there.

Alas arriving late in the day I did not pay to see the full castle. But I did enjoy the free bits, the gardens, views and buildings.

Lovely castle. Surrounds the town. Very well kept and looked after. Looks even better at night time.

Learned more about the Holy Roman Empire than I ever thought I would. Fortification / castle fun to walk around and imagine, Museum particularly well done. My favorite part was the chapel. Take the time to walk up the tower (it's only 100 stairs or...More
