Historic Site
“Medieval Dungeons Beginning in the 14th century, the dungeons in the vaulted cellar of Nuremberg's City Hall were used to confine and question prisoners until a judgment could be carried out. Twelve small cells and a torture chamber give a gloomy picture of how justice was administered in those days. Sehenswert! Lochgefängnis aus dem 14. Jahrhundert.”

History Museum
“The DB Museum was founded in 1882, making it the oldest railway museum in the world Having opened its doors in 1882, the DB Museum is now the world's oldest museum devoted to the railways. Its main building is located in Nuremberg, and it also has two other branches – one in Koblenz and the other in Halle an der Saale. Property of the Deutsche Bahn Foundation, the Nuremberg building may be old, but it is nothing if not modern, as its collections and exhibitions have been completely overhauled in recent years. Deutsche Bahn Museum nur fünf Minuten von der Unterkunft entfernt. Für alle die Züge lieben ;-)”

Castle
“Vom Sinwell Turm hast Du einen gigantischen Überblich über die Stadt und die Umgebung. Mit deiner Eintrittskarte kannst Du dir auch den "Tiefen Brunnen" ansehen. Es dauert einige Sekunden, bis das hineingegossene Wasser auf dem Grund ankommt. Sehr sehenswert.”

Plaza
“Mit dem frei stehenden alten Rathaus in der Mitte und durch die beiden Stadttore begrenzt, wurde der Laufer Marktplatz im 13. Jahrhundert an der „Goldenen Straße“ von Nürnberg nach Prag angelegt. Er folgt in dieser Anlage dem Schema eines „Bayerischen Straßenmarktes“. Als Warenumschlagplatz, Zollstation, Wochen- und Jahrmarkt erhielt er sein typisches Gepräge.”
