Nuremberg Castle is one of the most important castles in Germany and symbol of the second biggest city in Bavaria. Since the Middle Ages its silhouette has represented the power and importance of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation and the outstanding role of the imperial city of Nuremberg.
From a distance it looks like a single complex, but in fact consists of three separate entities divided from one another by gates and walls. Seen from the old town, the actual castle with the Palas, Chapel, and Bower is grouped round the inner castle courtyard and protected by the bailey with the Sinwell Tower. East of it are the Pentagonal Tower and the Walburgis Chapel - both of which are part of the former Burgrave’s Castle. At the easternmost point is the Luginsland from which the people of Nuremberg could see into the Burgrave’s Castle. Next to the tower is the Imperial Stables, once the city’s corn granary.
Enjoy the view from up the medieval building upon the city or stroll through the beautiful lush castle gardens if weather allows.
