Nürnberg lies on the bank of the river Pegnitz in the Bavaria district of Germany. It is the second largest city of Bavaria and it is one of the most important cities considering science and technology in Europe.
The city can satisfy every single kind of tourist, the diversity of sights is astonishing. You can find your entertainment if you are an art enthusiast, or if you are fond of history either medieval or modern. History itself can be attached to the imperial castle but there is a district of the town which is totally dedicated to historical buildings that are perfectly restaurated maybe the one worth mentioning is the Tucher Castle which stands there like it was built yesterday.
To get to other parts of the city you might want to rent a car, since it gives you the flexibility and freedom that are essential to explore this city at your own pace. Outside the historical district you can visit the Toy Museum and the Train Museum where you can see the first engine ever made. The German National Museum is holding the German history's artifacts. It gives us a look from the very beginning to the late 19th century, how German culture looked like, and how it formed throughout the years.
There is another famous but also seasonal sight in Nürnberg which is the advent market. Hundreds of thousands of people visit this market every year, not even buying anything but just walking around amazed by the cozy atmosphere of the place.
