About Nuremberg Castle
Nuremberg Castle (Nürnberger Burg) is a medieval castle – or rather a castle complex – made up of three parts.
Whilst it is unclear as to exactly when Nuremberg Castle was first constructed, by the mid-eleventh century, it was a prestigious residence. In fact, between 1050 and 1571, every Holy Roman Emperor stayed there at one point or another.
