Nowadays, Nürnberg (or Neurenberg or Nuremberg) is known worldwide as the city where the so called Nuremberg trials were held: the trials during which the leading national socialists were judged after WWII.
But the city was and is of course much more than that. Although half of the historic center was destroyed in the last year of the war (by allied bombers and during the house-to-house fights in the days between 17 and 21 April 1945), the city was rebuilt after the war and partly regained it's pre-war appearance, while also not destroying the Reichsparteigelände, the buildings and constructions added to the city by Albert Speer, where the major national socialist rallies were held (nowadays, they are actually protected as monuments).
We were thinking about a short visit to the city on our way back from Budapest but ended up booking a hotel for an extra day because there was just too much to see.
You'll find all my Nürnberg photos here, and a small selection in this post and the next one.
