Nuremberg: a digitalization centre in a medieval setting

Nuremberg is unique. It has a cosy feel, is historic, metropolitan, modern, innovative and digital – and is all of these in and around a historic centre dominated by the city’s impressive Imperial Castle.

The evidence of the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region also being a very modern place is significantly less conspicuous, but no less sensational. For example, Bosch’s site in Nuremberg is investing EUR 60m in 3D printing and other digital techniques, the Nuremberg Digital Festival, previously called the Nuremberg Web Week, takes place every year, and in Cinecittá, the city boasts a multiplex cinema that uses world-leading digital technology.
