Nürnberg. Unique History.

Not for nothing is the old imperial city of Nürnberg one of the most attractive destinations for visitors from all over the world. The unique mix of history, modern age and future together with art, culture and technology of world significance makes the Nürnberg Metropolitan Region so appealing.

The old town centre of Nürnberg

An incomparable experience: more than 950 years of history wherever you go, splendid timber-framed houses, romantic streets and courtyards – and towering above all this is Nürnberg’s impressive Imperial Castle with its magnificent view over the city and region.

Commitment to the Past

The National Socialists also adopted the city’s beauty and its economic success story as their own, however, and organized their party rally in Nuremberg from 1927 onwards. After the end of the Second World War, the Allies chose Nuremberg as the location for the war crimes trials for pragmatic and symbolic reasons. In 2001, the city opened the globally respected Documentation Centre in the Nazi Party rally grounds, in which the debate on the city’s own history actively continues.

Made in Nürnberg

Unique proof of quality for centuries: The fi rst lebkuchen(gingerbread) was baked here in the 13th century, Germany’sfi rst paper mill was built here in 1390, Martin Behaim shapedour picture of the world with his globe in 1492, Peter Henleininvented the pocket-watch in 1510, and Germany’s fi rstrailway ran here in 1835. The cough drop was on everybody’slips from 1923, the Tempo tissue saw the light of day in1929, followed by the MP3 format in 1992 and the drivesystem for the Transrapid in 2004. Innovation proceeding.
