Nuremberg Cruise Port
Port of Nuremberg: An Overview
Nuremberg, located 110 miles north of Munich, is the second-largest city in Bavaria, boasting a population of 500,000. Save for its significance during World War II, it doesn't always get the spotlight it deserves. Yet, once you set foot in the walled medieval Old Town, you'll realize what a treasure the city is, especially if you can snag one of its famous Lebkuchen, Christmas gingerbread cookies dating to the 13th century. Even better: If you're there during the holidays, you can visit Christkindlemarkt, the city's world-famous Christmas market.
Stroll into Old Town, where you can visit the home of Albrecht Durer, a famous Renaissance painter and artist. Another highlight, no matter your age, is the Toy Museum, which has attracted more than 4 million visitors since its opening in 1971. There, you can learn about Nuremberg's longstanding history with toys, which dates to doll makers in the medieval times. See everything from wooden toys and doll houses to toy train sets and a tin world. Finish your visit by enjoying a Nuremberg bratwurst.
Although the city lies on the Danube, your ship will dock in an area that's not conducive to walking into Old Town. Instead, you'll be bussed into Nuremberg, where you might walk around the Imperial Castle, an important palace of the Old Holy Roman Empire. The castle towers above the city, allowing panoramic views.
