Nuremberg is the second largest city in the State of Bavaria. Its unique traditionalism can be seen immediately from the numerous historical buildings spread throughout its districts. The town’s castle is a striking symbol of the city and is one of Europe’s oldest fortifications. The Neptune Fountain and the Frauentorturm are definitely worth visiting - You can of course combine all of these cultural highlights with an extensive shopping trip. One of the joys of traveling by bus is that you can always be sure you and your shopping bags will get from A to B and back again safely and efficiently – no problem with FlixBus!
One of Nuremberg’s most popular churches is its Roman Catholic “Frauenkirche” located on the eastern side of the main market. Following the order of Emperor Charles IV, the construction began in 1349 and the inauguration of this striking Gothic style church was then fulfilled nine years later in 1358. During your visit to this church you should be sure to take time to look at the derived and preserved sculptures; thanks to the complex restorations that took place these sculptures are a popular attraction amongst our bus travelers. Another recommendation is the Old Town Albrecht Duerer House. Albrecht Duerer lived here from 1509 to 1528 and worked as a painter, graphic designer, mathematician and art theoretician. The structure was erected in 1420 – while the two lower floors were bricked in sandstone, the other two floors followed the upper half-timbered style of the period. Today the Albrecht Dürer building is one of Nuremberg’s city museums. A great destination for any bus traveler is the Nicolaus-Copernicus-Planetarium, which is located directly in the city center and will give you an exciting journey to the stars. Here you can see the solar system like you’ve never seen it before as Nuremberg’s Planetarium holds more information about our solar system and universe than any other museum in Bavaria; a fascinating trip for children and adults alike. After your bus trip to Nuremberg you will have had many opportunities to not only visit the landmarks of the city, but also get many different impressions from the wide variety of museums.
