This is Nuremberg, a half-timbered Bavarian dreamtown with candycane views and its own hilltop castle. Stupid cute, right? But now, let me taint this Kodak moment w/ some reaaaal heavy pieces of dark history for you... because it’s important for context.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣ If this photo had been taken 75 years ago, you’d be looking at rubble. In March 1944, during WWII, 90% of the Nuremberg Old Town was wiped out in a single hour by bombs. They’ve since rebuilt it to mimic its former look, hence why it’s so cutesy and snowglobey today
2️⃣ Nuremberg was Hitler’s favourite city, he called it “the most German of German cities”, which is why he held some of the biggest Nazi rallies here. If you’ve seen any rally footage in like, WWII documentaries, odds are you’ve seen Nuremberg
3️⃣ Post WWII, it was here that they held the Nuremberg trials, where important Nazi officials were prosecuted. It was the first ever prosecution for “crimes against humanity”, and the 1st time the word genocide was used in court
4️⃣ In spite of this dark past though, Nuremberg is thriving today, with lots of museums, memorials and a documentation center for visitors to learn more about its history, which is why I encourage you to visit if you ever get the chance. (They also have good gingerbread)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I always try to read up on local history wherever I am. Sure, most of the time I forget it within minutes (I am a human goldfish), but in some places like Nuremberg, it’s important to learn, and even more important to share. Who else does Wikipedia binges before/after they visit a place? 🙋🏻‍♀️

„The ancient city of Nuremberg (Nürnberg) is an important center for arts and culture. The city has also long been associated with advances in science and technology, particularly in printing - it was home to Europe's first printing press - and astronomy (Nicolaus Copernicus's most famous work was published here in 1543). Despite having been severely damaged in WW2, many of the medieval buildings in the Old Town (Altstadt) have been painstakingly restored to their former glory. In fact, most of the top attractions in Nuremberg are located within the historic walls, which extend some five kilometers around the Old Town.

You may want to plan your visit to coincide with one of Nuremberg's many festivals. Two favorites are the famous two-week long Old Town Festival musical and folk event, and International Organ Week, which runs from late June to mid-July. Plan more with our list of top attractions in Nuremberg.“
