Spring in Franconia!
Nuremberg is the second largest city in Bavaria with about half a million inhabitants and is in the heart of Franconia. Not only does it contain a dramatic and fascinating past, but also a wonderful old town, and many international fairs and with great locations in the middle of nature. City life beckons many residents and tourists to visit. The connection the city has to the University of Erlangen and the city of science, Fürth, makes Nuremberg even more attractive for all generations. Large parks and a great public transportation systems connect the three cities and the people. The surrounding lakes, the open air events, and the castle at night should especially be visited during the springtime.
One popular event for everyone is “die Blaue Nacht” in the center of the city. All shops and squares light up with a magic blue glow, while artists and storeowners present their works. Many visitors meet for music, cocktails, and good food on the streets dancing the night away. If this is too much blue, you can also visit the public gardens, the zoo, or enjoy long walks to many different cities. Despite the high population, Nuremberg has remained welcoming and pleasant. If you are planning a trip to Germany, the middle of Franconia should not be missed!
