Kaiserburg Nurnberg reviews
Worthwhile to go up into the castle but it is very steep climbing. The views of Nuremberg from the castle are impressive.

Wow, wow, wow. Excellent castle visit to the Imperial Castle. Located at the top of a hill, overlooking the city of Nuremberg, the Imperial Castle is reached after a serious climb uphill. Not difficult for the fully able ,it is a long rather arduous slog up to the courtyard. *******,Handicap VERY difficult , if not impossible, not made any easier by the cobblestone road .*********( that said, I did see a gentleman with a walker!!!) The museum entry is 7 Euros, 6 if you are a senior or a student. Wow----super excellent presentation and displays of the medieval history of this castle 🏰. Armaments, armor, clothing, artifacts, explanations and visuals were superb. One of the best. Great value for the money!!!! Restaurant in the courtyard BEST VIEWS OF NUREMBERG. PHOTO OP ++++++!!!!!! Restrooms available. Free brochures. Recommended highly 👌 👍 👏 Final take . Prep yourself for the climb up but well worth it Go
Beautiful castle over looking Nuremberg. Great views from the top. Beautiful fort and buildings. We did not fully go inside, but walked around on the outside. Enjoyed the visit and the walk.
