Kaiserburg - Imperial Castle, Nürnberg: 53 reviews and 137 photos

  Kaiserburg, Nuremberg
by antistar
 
 

The Imperial Castle sits atop of the hill overlooking the Altstadt. While you can't see it from all around like some castles, it grants amazing views from its towers and turrets. It is a grand and awe inspiring fortress, with its roots stamped firmly into the solid rock that pushes out of the ground at the top of Bergstrasse. The complex is quite large and you can access most of it for free, including the gardens to the back. It includes four towers and a little two storey chapel. The Fünfeckturm (Pentagonal Tower) is the oldest part of the complex, dating back to the 11th century.

Address: Burg 13, 90403 Nürnberg
Directions: Walk up Bergstrasse from the market place and you can't miss it at the top of the hill.
