the tastes of all diners. Culinary

options scope traditional Franconian fare, modern classics and simple street food. Despite Germany’s reputation for high meat consumption, meat- free and vegan eating-out is now increasingly catered to. Nuremberg’s buzz is also distinctive in that, despite all its distinguished heritage and prominence in Bavaria’s history dating back to the Middle Ages, it feels vibrantly contemporary with new developments and current events – as is evidenced by the many leading exhibitions and congresses that take place every year at the city's exhibition centre. Nuremberg’s transport links are

integrated and effi cient – getting to and from its airport from the city centre, for instance, takes less than 15 minutes – indeed, it’s one of the few European city airports that travellers can even walk to or cycle to! Outside of the full programme of

events at it-sa 2018 a wide range of visitor attractions and activities awaits – and they include many places

that will appeal to the

technically-minded visitor, such as the Communications Museum, DB Railway Museum, and Merks Motor Museum. And many would argue that

no visit to Nuremberg – however brief – is truly complete without a stop by the former home of artist Albrecht Dürer. This atmospheric half-timbered house on Beim Tiergärtnertor is the only surviving Renaissance artist’s house outside of Italy. It’s now a museum to the man and his work, with his original etchings, woodcuts and paintings on display.

WORSHIPFUL SURROUNDINGS Nuremberg has several magnifi cent monuments to religious worship, a visit to which can be the subject of prolonged meditation or an awe-stuck speed tour for anyone with only a half-hour top spare. Pre-eminent among these is the spectacular double-towered church of St Sebaldus. Located on Albrecht-Dürer-Platz, across from the old City Hall, St Sebaldus takes its name from an 8th century hermit and missionary – and patron saint of Nuremberg. The church, as visitors now marvel at it, was built in stages that started before 1225; but its distinctive twin towers were not erected until the 15th century. Many of its interior’s greatest masterworks survived the ravages of turbulent times for visitors still to enjoy. They include the Shrine

The castle was considered one of Europe's most formidable fortifi cations, representative of the state's might and importance.

of St Sebaldus, works by sculptor Veit Stoss, and exquisite stained- glass windows and ornately fashioned window surrounds. Nuremberg’s other eminent example of ecclesiastic architecture

that dates from the Middle Ages, the Frauenkirche (‘Church of Our Lady’), stands on the eastern side of the main market. An example of brick Gothic architecture, it was built during the reign of Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor between 1352 and 1362.
