In the heart of Nuremburg, Altstadt represents the city's rich history and its recent resilience. As you explore the old town's tree-lined streets, you can admire the imposing, medieval stone fortress and timbered houses. Much of Nuremburg was destroyed in World War II bombing. You may find yourself heartened by the last 70-plus years of recovery and rebuilding efforts. Consider a stop at the Church of St. Sebald. The town's saint is buried within. The riverfront promenade makes for a pleasant walk and place to grab a bite to eat.
