Nuremberg (pop. 494 900) founded in 1040 is an interesting mix of the quaint and the cosmopolitan. The Altstadt (Old City) is a medieval walled city with large pedestrian walkways graced by the pretty Pegnitz River. Spend the afternoon strolling the narrow streets and alleys shopping for antiques toys crafts and jewelry. At Christmastime the city’s main market turns into the famous Christkindlmarkt an open-air Christmas Market that has spawned imitators throughout Germany. The main attractions are gluhwein (warm spiced wine) and lebkuchen (similar to gingerbread). Visit the city’s three churches (Frauenkirche St. Lorenze Kirche and St. Sebaldus Kirche) and the Albrecht Durer House where the artist lived for 20 years. Before you leave turn the gold ring at the Gothic Schoner Brunnen (Beautiful Fountain) for good luck and taste the city’s unique spicing of bratwurst. 90 mi/150 km north-northwest of Munich.
