about Nuremberg Castle
Nuremberg Castle (Nürnberger Burg) is a medieval castle - or rather a castle complex - made up of three parts.
Whilst it is unclear as to exactly when Nuremberg Castle was first constructed, by the mid-eleventh century, it was a prestigious residence. In fact, between 1050 and 1571, every Holy Roman Emperor stayed there at one point or another.
Visits are by guided tour, which last around ninety minutes.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours! While we work as hard as we can to ensure the information provided here about Nuremberg Castle is as accurate as possible, the changing nature of certain elements mean we can't absolutely guarantee that these details won't become a thing of the past.
