Nuremberg is the second largest city in Bavaria in southern Germany. It was first founded by King Henry III who built the towering, well-known castle in 1040. Craftsmen and patricians flocked to the city after it became a free imperial city. This is still obvious today with Old Town. Old Town is lined with shops known for quality and originality just like the ancestors of those that live here now. People love to visit and live in this important Bavarian city because of its romantic atmosphere and the unique mix of medieval buildings, culture, and modern businesses.
Location: On the Pegnitz River North of Munich
The town known for gingerbread and Christmas is situated on the Pegnitz River as well as the Main-Danube Canal. The oceanic climate leads to consistent rainfall and pleasant mild weather throughout the year. Strolling around the city gives a peaceful and beautiful view, but it is also convenient. Trains, ships, buses, and planes are all available for local and national travel. In fact, it is also linked to the German Autobahn network.
Business: Technology, Service Sector, and Real Estate
As much as three fourths of jobs in this Bavarian metropolis are in the service sector. Locals pride themselves on quality service and products ranging from small shops in Old Town to future-oriented industries, such as e-commerce and engineering consulting. Real estate is particularly important to the local economy. If visitors or residents need to plan a corporate meeting, they are also in luck. Nuremberg is home to The Nuremberg Convention Bureau, which helps plan the most efficient congresses and conferences.
Culture: Historical Attractions Display a Rich History
Much of this amazing city's culture revolves around its importance to the Holy Roman Empire. This is because it is the home of Kaiserburg, the crucial Imperial Castle from when Rome ruled this area. Now, this castle is a museum where people of all ages can come see the magnificent view, deep well, and the educational experience showing archaeological finds and the changing tasks of the staff within the castle throughout the years.
