Nuremberg's historic town center stands in the shadow of a towering imperial castle that dominates its northwestern corner.
Get a sense of the local culture at Cathedral of St Peter's and Marienkapelle. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Neumuenster and Neupfarrplatz. Get out of town with these interesting Nuremberg side-trips: Hofkirche (in Wurzburg) and Regensburg (Basilica of the Nativity of Our Lady Regensburg, Basilika St. Emmeram, &more). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at ST. JAKOB, steep yourself in history at Heilig-Geist-Spital, make a trip to Ehekarussell, and appreciate the history behind Narrenschiffbrunnen.
