    Beautiful ascent, very beautiful and well-kept castle with beautiful plants that entwine on the walls. Above, there is also a tower and a viewing platform from which you have a great view of Nuremberg.

    Nuremberg's Imperial Castle actually consists of three castles: the Imperial Castle, the Burgrave Castle and the Imperial Castle complex. An extremely impressive overall ensemble!

    Currently (at the end of 2018) more extensive construction measures are in progress, which means that not all areas are accessible / photogenic.

    The building is owned by the Bavarian Palace Administration and is primarily used for tourist purposes. Individual buildings are also used as residential, official or museum buildings as well as temporarily for parties and state receptions. One of the largest and most modern youth hostels in Germany is located in the old imperial stables. The house with 355 beds was reopened in spring 2013 after renovation.
