Reader Review:
“We traveled to Nuremberg over the holidays on our way home from Prague.  The IMT just opened Nov. 22nd!! We had hoped just to see the courthouse/courtroom and maybe a placard or something. We saw so much more.  I hope all Americans at GK can experience this on their tour here. It is a mere 4.5 hour drive from GK, and I am quite sure you could take the train as well.  The Nuremberg exhibit was absolutely incredible.  The girls were really moved by it.  [The oldest] listened to her audio guide as long as her dad did.  I drug on the longest. It was so interesting.  I think she soaked up a lot.  It is a very lengthy audio guide exhibit. But every entry in the audio guide is intriguing. Even [our younger two] soaked up a lot before they tired out.  There is video that was used as an exhibit in the trial.  It was sobering and troubling.  I had a great discussion with the girls that night about their impressions of the trials. Great family experience. Wonderfully done exhibit.”




Nuremberg is far more than this museum and this sad time in its history.  Go and see the old town as well “which is beautiful, and is still completely surrounded by old city wall, and also houses the Imperial castle, beautiful cathedrals and interesting museums.”  This large city also has great shopping.

Fürth
Only three miles west of Nuremberg, Fürth is a convenient place to stay during your Nuremberg trip.  You can park your car at the hotel and take the metro directly to Nuremberg.  There are only two platforms and two directions with several stops in each town, so it’s easy to get close to where you want to go.

For the Trials Museum, stop at Bärenschanze.

The charming city of Fürth is also a mecca of shopping and has a picturesque old town.

“Our hotel is ran by a German couple who speak wonderful English.  They had an apartment that fit all 5 of our family members.  All non-smoking rooms. Breakfast is wonderful and only 4.50 euro per person.  No free wireless, but the service was excellent. Parking on site for about 10 euro a night.

    We combined Nurnberg and Rothenburg ob de Tauber. B/c we have young kids and travel with all their gear, we try to move hotels as little as possible. We slept at the Army base in Ansbach which is equidistant between the two. Ansbach itself is a cute town, with lots of casual eateries and good shopping — a good home base. (Army lodging is not as nice and is more expensive than Air Force lodging, but is less expensive than the local area if you’re stretching your travel $$$$). There’s also a LEGO park just outside of Nurnberg if you want to reward the young ones for making it through the historical stuff. Nurnberg’s toy museum and train museum are also young-kid friendly attractions to throw in.
