Nuremberg is nothing like Munich. A city full of water, bridges, beautiful architecture and easy going people is all it can be expected. I must confess I loved the 2-days trip there. Just walking a bit around, shopping, visiting the street markets in the main square, crossing the many bridges the city has and of course, appreciating the wood timber-framing houses famous in the region. The castle on top of a hill is a must, as well as tasting the best Lebkuchen of the world, with more than 400 years of tradition. For a night out, I highly recommend the Handwerkerhof, a medieval area with small restaurants and craft shops. A bit further, and easily reachable by a semi-automatic-subway, is the Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds ( History was made here!!! Still an unfinished project by the chief Nazi architect Albert Speer, the grounds exhibit only the remains of a masterplan that survived time.
