    Nuremberg Castle

    May 16, 2015 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    We began walking at the old city walls and fortress of Nuremberg Castle. Since this town captures what is quintessentially German, Adolf Hitler wanted to establish his presence here. It is fascinating how the dry moat, the upward climb to the portcullis, and the crooked, left-turning approach covered with murder holes were devised for strategic defense. The soft sandstone and the angled walls both served defensive purposes as well. It is interesting that this castle was never attacked because it was designed so well, no one dared attack directly. The best they could do was to lay siege to it. Our guide, whose name I understood to be Ingar, was very bright and funny. Down in the town we saw the modern pig sculpture symbolizing the world's reception of the work of Albrecht Durer, and the traditional statue of the late nineteenth century.Read more

    Alemanha I am back

    March 9, 2018 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 6 °C

    I missed my country a lot and was very happy to be back in Nürnberg. But the great memories are staying. I met great people and had the best time of my life. I will come back soon to my second home Puuuorto!
    I miss you Douro, Atlantic Ocean, Villa Porto, palacio de cristal and a lot more 🙇🏼‍♀️
    I had less standards but amazing company and felt the happiness of Portugese people. They love music, dancing and singing everywhere. Porto is and will always be an inspiring and special city for me.
    Xau for Erasmus and hello for a new part of my life
    Everything has come to an end....

    Wir waren die ersten bei der Führung. Super angenehm temperiert. Viel zu lesen. Beim letzten Bild zielt der Schütze auf jeden Besucher, egal wo man steht. Super gemalt

    Hausbraurei Altstadthof

    January 7, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    Albrecht-Dürer-Stube was closed, so we go around the corner of the road and head into this beer pub for some nice craft beer and a taste of tge nuremburg bratwurst. The beer is pretty good, not too strong and doesnt have a strong after taste. The sausage is kinda smaller than those we had eaten so far lol. Longest we had was at the prater in vienna. But it is yums, with the texture and inner filling felt handmade. The taste? Quite similar to the bratwurst we had actually.Read more

    Our last castle

    January 8, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    We took a random turn and went up to the castle thats located near to the restaurant. And we are glad that we did as we can see the birdseye view of the city. We took birdseye view of all the cities we have been to so far, how can we missed nuremburg? But this chance is by God's blessing. If we never randomly decide to head up and see see, and continue to go deeper despite it looks closed, we will never be able to capture our last city view. Amen!Read more

    Nürnberg

    June 22, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Nach einer kurzen Nacht haben wir eine geführte Stadttour gemacht. Meine Tante hatte den richtigen Riecher und wir hatten einen spitzen Reiseführer. Er hat uns durch kleine Gassen über niedliche Brücken bis hin zur Kaiserburg geführt.
    Die Tour ging knapp zwei Stunden und wir starteten auf dem Nürnberger Hauptmarktplatz.
    Generell kann man jeden Tag alles fpr den täglichen gebrauch auf dem Marktplatz finden. Aber besonders ist die Frauenkirche. Hier findet täglich um 12 Uhr das "Männleinlaufen" statt. Meiner Meinung nach ein muss wenn man in Nürnberg zu Besuch ist. Leider konnte ich es nicht sehen weil ich zu der Zeit auf der Kaiserburg gewesen bin. 😏
    Zudem gibt es einen Brunnen auf dem Hauptmarktplatz. Dieser sagt einer Müthe nach, wenn man dreimal an einem der beiden losen Ringe dreht mit der linken Hand nach rechts geht der Wunsch dem man sich erhofft in Erfüllung. 😉⛲
