Parking up at a small and crowded (but free) stopover on the outskirts of Nuremburg we took the tandem along the well signposted riverside cycle track 3km into the heart of the city.
Being a Saturday the place was heaving. We came across a busy market with red and white striped stall covers in the church square.

Many have arches and stone carved detail that we could get close enough to appreciate as we walked along the bank.Read more
