Bavaria's second-largest city Nuremberg has things to amaze visitors. The unofficial capital of Franconia welds together history and vibrant night life. Nuremberg is always full of visitors, come winter or summer. The city is famous for its Christmas markets, traditional beer, and summer festivals.

For centuries, Nuremberg had been an unproclaimed capital of the Holy Roman Empire and the seat of many German kings. Their legacy is felt even today. The city is rich not only in historic architecture, but in many world-famous Nurembergers. The artist Albrecht Dürer was born here. Another famous German, the founder of the Reformation Martin Luther, had this to say about the city: “Nuremberg shines throughout Germany like a sun among the moon and stars.” The industrial revolution of the 19th century made Nuremberg into a powerhouse of the world.

However, the Second World War took heavy toll on the city which suffered many heavy bombings and was left in ruins. Over 6,000 people in Nuremberg died during the war. Later, it was the seat of the war tribunal that sentenced the perpetrators of the war and the Holocaust.

Today, Nuremberg is a vibrant, economically robust place filled with cafés and restaurants. It can also offer a rich selection of museums, including the Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rallying Grounds, the Neues Museum Nürnberg showcasing modern and contemporary art and design, the House of Albrecht Dürer, the The Germanisches Nationalmuseum, the Nuremberg Toy Museum and others.

The city has a population of some 800,000 people, including strong Turkish, Russian, and Greek communities.
