Solo Female Travel in Nuremberg

Nuremberg, nestled in the federal state of Bavaria in southern Germany, is a city steeped in history and vibrant tradition. It is world-renowned for its pivotal role in the history of the Holy Roman Empire, being a powerhouse of the Industrial Revolution, and sadly, the staging of Nazi Party rallies and the following Nuremberg trials post World War II. Today, the charming Old Town treats its visitors to medieval architecture, including the towering Nuremberg Castle, the enchanting Church of Our Lady, and the iconic Hauptmarkt, a bustling square that hosts the famous Nuremberg Christmas Market. Nuremberg's rich past blends with its thriving modernity, as it is also known for its excellent museums, vibrant arts scene, and delicious Franconian cuisine.

Solo travel experience

Nuremberg is a place when I felt safe and it has become totally iconic for me! I’ve been there for a few days (cheap flights) and it’s really worth it. First of all, I can highly reccomend long walks through the town; it’s really cute and I’m sure you’re gonna like it. German which I met were very helpful, but still all you need is map. Museum DB (of communication) and museum of Albrecht Durer (who was born here) were really cool to see too.
