"take a closer look at the..." Nürnberg Favorite Tip by smoox

Nürnberg General: 84 reviews and 109 photos


Favorite thing: take a closer look at the Sinwellturm (tower), a part of the castle. It is one of its most significant features. Right next to it is a very deep well reaching down to the ground water level - the castle needed water in case of emergency, and so they drilled a hole deep down!

Fondest memory: As a child, one of our teachers took us up to the castle to demonstrate how deep this well was. It impressed me then and still does today!

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
