Nuremburg Holidays Overview
A beautiful city located in Franconia, in Germany’s Northern Bavaria, Nuremburg is a busy, bustling city, which attracts thousands of tourists during the summer and Christmas periods.
Nuremburg played a leading role in the Holy Roman Empire, and was the preferred location for many Germany kings, who kept their crown jewels there. This led to prosperity for the city, and some exquisite architecture, which in turn attracted well known artists such as Albrecht Durer.
The Nazis used Nuremburg as the base for their activities, and staged massive rallies at the Reichsparteitagsgelände, four kilometres southeast of the city centre. The boycott of Jewish businesses began in Nuremburg, and the Nuremburg Laws outlawed Jewish citizenship. The city was also the site of the war crimes tribunal held after the Second World War, known as the Nuremburg Trails.
Around six thousand citizens were killed when Allied bombers destroyed the city in 1945. The majority of the city’s old buildings, including old churches and the castle, have been carefully restored, using the original stone where possible.
