2020. Corona. Travelling is a different game. Yet our Fernweh acted up too often. So we arranged a train trip to Germany and Austria. Specifically to Leipzig in Saxony, several spots in Bavaria and returning home with ÖBB‘s Nightjet from Innsbruck in Tyrol to Brussels in Belgium.
Again you’ll find information on the castle under different names: Nuremberg Castle, Nuremberg Imperial Castle, Kaisersburg Nürnberg, Nürnberger Burg.
When you see thre castle, and by extention the whole city, you see where Playmobil got its inspiration for the castle. Certainly for the vintage 1980s version. Even the coats of arms are uncannily similar.
Worth a visit?
A visit of Nuremberg Castle features typically ‘castly’ elements such as great halls, armours, chapels, artworks, diorama’s, displays and artefacts.
Should you visit? Sure, why not. The castle is not mind blowing but I experienced less interestingly made castle tours. The German-ness and the Playmobil-ness give Nuremberg Castle an advantage.
