Interesting Nuremberg in Bavaria, Germany

I can’t exactly remember how many times I did visited this city. I am quite sure more than ten times already. I never drive there but instead I always take the train. It is cheaper and I don’t have stress driving. Sometimes, you also have a difficulty of finding a parking space.

Nuremberg (Nürnberg in German) is a city in the state of Bavaria, Germany and the largest city in the Franconia region. The city has a lot of sights to visit. Among the few are; the Nuremberg Castle, St Sebaldo Church,Frauenkirche (Our Lady’s Church),Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Tiergarten Nürnberg (zoo in Nuremberg), (St. Lorenz church and a lot more.

Here are some of the few images I took during one of my visits.

The Gothic church, St Lorenz-Kirche (St. Lorenz church, St. Laurence), one of the most important buildings in Nuremberg. The main body was built around 1270-1350.

Heilig-Geist-Spital (English: Hospice of the Holy Spirit). It is located in the centre of the city, on the bank of the river Pegnitz. The Hospital of the Holy Spirit was founded in 1332. This is one of the largest hospitals of the Middle Ages. Lepers were kept here at some distance from the other patients. It now houses elderly persons and a restaurant.
