Besides parking spaces and restaurants for every taste, you can also find restful places where you can stay. ATM machines are on every corner so if need of cash quick, no worries here. Maybe it’s the most popular by its nightlife, where you can enjoy in almost any kind of fun. So, if planning to party a bit, this place doesn’t mind how old are you, for sure you will find a place where no one will judge you. In that case, enjoy!
  • 13 – Maxtor is the district in the northern part of the city, it belongs to the 26th district. It was once a Gate of the town, but since it was ruined, now it’s the main square for traffic for the whole northern side of the Nuremberg. It is most popular by the city park which is the beauty for itself and it spreading out over a large area in an irregular way. But, in case you didn’t know, here you will found a Neptune fountain, which is built in 1962, and is a work of art. If looking for a subway station, you’ll catch a U3 line.
  • 11 – Westtorgraben or Western Gate, is no longer the western gate, but still is one of the easiest ways to get to the western side of town. Once it was called Mohrentor, but, in 1870., it got its name which stands by now. To be able to make this a proper place for travelling, they had to demolish an old part of the town, which had its walls for protection of the town. Those changes were made in 1879., and since then, this is one of the most travelled parts of this side of the city.
  • 70 – Frauentorgraben is the main gate in the Eastern Wall of Nurenberg. A great round tower is on the top of the gate, and in the old days, this part was called  “Blau Q”. Through this gate, you can find yourself on the exit of the town, and all the Southern locations in the country. Courtyard replaced place named Inner Women’s Gate, and now this zone is for pedestrians only.
  • 67 – Koenigstorgraben is the place where you can find almost everything that you may need. Except for the police station, if you have a question or a remark, to the ‘ Ba Beef Club’, and for the real tourists, Dominos is right there on that street.
  • 52 -Marientorgraben
  • 41 -Breite strasse
  • 37 – Hauptmarkt
  • 30 – Schoener Brunnen (beautiful fountain)
  • 31 – Karolinen strasse
  • 31 – Adler strasse
  • 9 – Zeughaus
  • 17d – Weisser Turm, or the White Tower is the last station on this route. Its located in the old part of the city called Ludwigsplatz, right across St.Jakob and St. Elisabeth Churches. This station completes the circle where we can call it an end to a pedestrian zone, and it’s on the west side of the city. The tower is built so solid that stands out even to this day. One of the famous things about this place is that it also has a complicated clock on the top, and if you listen to old folks, the story about White Tower is that it won’t be white ever again if it’s not being licked by Nurenburg Virgines, but it’s just a myth.

  • 29 – Tugend brunnen
  • 26 – St. Klara

  • 53 – Verkehrs-museum or The Nurenberg Transport Museum consists of two parts, one of them is Deutsche Bahm’s and the other covers Museum of Communications. This Nurenberg Transport Museum is the oldest of its kind in Europe. Among its exhibitions, you can find here parts of the Royal Train from Bavarian King Ludvig the Second, the Streamlined locomotive, and the trans-Europe Expres diesel railcar that dates from the 1950s, original wagon that transported coal during the beginning of the 19th century,  as well as the oldest Steam locomotive in Germany which was made way back in 1853.
  • 15 – Durer Hase or the Albrecht Dürer’s House was once home of Renaissance Artist Albrecht Dürer. The house is settled on the north-west part of the town, and very far from the center of the Nurenberg. The house itself was built around the 1420., but with a firm architecture not much was done, because it wasn’t needing any improvement. It has 5 stories, and it’s nice like many Nuremberg old houses. Because of his art skills, his house serves as a museum of a kind. Having no one to present his life’s work, he made his house into a museum, where everyone could look at his pictures and other artwork. This is the place you shouldn’t skip when near the Dürer’s House. What is also amazing is the view from the top floor, where you can almost see the whole city, and the Castle right below the window.
  • 1 – Rathaus is the place of the current Town Hall in Nurenberg, and its located on the just east of St. Sebaldus in the Old Part of the Nurenburg Town. Al the buildings from the Town Hall all the way to the Main Market Place, which is famously called ‘ The Historic Mile Of Nurenberg ‘, was being destroyed in the Second World War but renewed and rebuilt in 1951., with a lot of help from the architect Kurt Schneckendorf, who make the plan for the new buildings during almost the whole famous mile. Reconstruction of the Town Hall began in 1954. and was fully done by 1956.
